Husband and Wife Trophy (1969)

In 1969, the growing popularity of mixed golf gave Michael Dagg and his committee the inspiration to initiate the Husband and Wife match play event at Newlands.  The winners of the first competition were Frank and Ann Byrne from Delgany and the weeklong competition went on to become the most popular open competition in Leinster for husband and wives.

The first trophy was sponsored by Christy Coffey and his colleagues at the Capital Bottling Company.

This year’s competition is sponsored by KING TREE SERVICES and is held on Sat 22nd July 2017 with shotgun starts at 9.30am and 3.00pm

Mixed Foursomes Challenge Cup (1970)

Mixed foursomes golf became very popular in Newlands in the 1960’s.

The popularity of these competitions encouraged Paddy Roche and Seamus O’Loughlin, regular supporters of mixed golf in the Club, to donate the Mixed Foursomes Challenge Cup.  This cup is presented annually to the winners of the Mixed Match play event.
