Spring League

Congratulations to Simon Hogan and his team on winning the Spring League final with just two points to spare over Sean Moylan’s team. The league had a very successful run with over thirty teams taking part. It was great to see that almost all golfers finished out their rounds which added to the success of the competition.
This weekend we have the qualifying round of the long established Hackett Cup: thirty two players to qualify. Also please note that the entry sheets are in the locker room for the Kenny Cup which is generally recognised as producing the matchplay champion of the Club. Both the Kenny and the Hackett are GOY competitions.
The Open Tuesday Stableford will commence next Tuesday 12th. Please encourage all your friends to come along and enjoy a pleasant round in The Glenns.
