The Alice Perry Ladies Scratch Cup, 2001
A monthly general committee meeting was held at the Black Lion Pub in Inchicore in October 2001 to commemorate many similar meetings held at the venue that planned the move from Robin Hood that led to the establishment of Newlands Golf Club.
An Irish Times feature article regarding the historical nature of the meeting was observed by two grandchildren of Alice Perry, who was in 1924, the winner of the Captain’s (Mr J. Kearney) at Robin Hood Golf Club. They arrived at the meeting at the Black Lion Pub and presented the Cup to the 2001 Captain, Aidan Keogh, who in turn presented it to the Ladies section for an annual scratch cup competition, now known as the Alice Perry Cup.

Maureen Moore Match play Trophy (1996)
This cup was presented to Newland Golf Club in 1996 by Louis Moore, a former Treasurer and Committee member of the Club, in memory of his late wife Maureen. A very accomplished golfer who held the course record of 74 for several years, Maureen played off 4 handicap and was a very keen student of the game. Her annual trip with her family to Lahinch for Open Week was a highlight of her year and she represented Newlands proudly with some notable performances.
This fourball match play event is a keenly contested fixture in the Ladies’ calendar.
