Crumlin Children’s Hospital Fundraising day – Thank you

On behalf of Crumlin Children’s Hospital I wish to say a very sincere thank you to President Aidan, Captains Loretto and Owen and all the members of Newlands for their very generous support in aid of Crumlin Children’s Hospital .

 Newlands members have a long tradition of supporting Crumlin Children’s Hospital and have always been very generous. This year was no exception despite the challenges of COVID-19.

Thank you to our main sponsors Johnny Vaughan and Hilary Kenny who once again have very generously sponsored the day, to all the sponsors of Tees and Greens, to all those who supported the raffle, to those who made donations for their very generous contributions and to Michael Walsh for providing a complimentary Club Clean service .

Thank you also to the more than 20 volunteers who helped make the day a great success covering competition registration, selling raffle tickets, managing the first tee and score entry and preparing competition results.

Congratulations to Gearóid MacGabhann , Cian MacGabhann, Niall Cunningham and Fergal Whitely  (Stackstown) who won the team event with 93 points  – We had a record entry of 248 players. Commiserations to those players who had their golf impacted by the deluge in the later part of the day.

Congratulations to Anna Usher who won 1st prize in the raffle ( Overnight stay and golf at Kilkea Castle) and to all the other raffle winners – There are still some prizes to be collected in the office.

Competition and Raffle results are posted here along with photos of the winners.


I’m delighted to say that thanks to the great generosity of everyone on the day we raised an amazing €12,002 for Crumlin Children’s Hospital.

Team of 3 Open Event Sponsored by Neasa Greene

A huge Thank You to Neasa Greene for sponsoring a very successful Ladies Open on Thursday 23rd July, 2020.  I’d like to congratulate our worthy winners Mary K O’Mahony (Newlands), Mary Kyne (Lucan) and Ann Marie Quinn (Dun Laoghaire) on a super score of 81 points.

We were delighted to welcome Neasa and her playing partners, Mary Joe McPadden and Mary Drake who had an enjoyable game.  Neasa said she was delighted to sponsor the day in memory of her Dad, Christy Greene, who had a long and special relationship with Newlands.  He treated Newlands Golf club, where he spent many happy days, as his second home.
Thanks to Gerry and his team for presenting the course in superb condition, despite a lot of rainfall the previous night and early in the morning.  Thanks also to Kanum Thai for the lovely food served to us.   171 ladies from various clubs played and all our members and guests had a very enjoyable day.  Picture below shows Captain Loretto presenting flowers to Neasa.
