Another great day for Newlands with a win over Corrstown GC in our semi final matches played in Seapoint GC.
This was another super performance by our Junior Foursomes team, Patricia Heffernan and Denise Tobin, Frances Mayberry and Frances Mahon, Wendy Hogan and Deborah McCready, sub on the day was Rita Keane.
We have had exciting finishes in all our campaigns, but the manner of this win shows the calibre and determination of this team. As we headed into the final holes of the third match, we were even with one match each from the first two matches. Heading up the 18th, we were 1 down and our ball was in the bunker! Wendy Hogan took a shot out of the deep bunker that Rory McElroy would have loved to be able to do in Portrush! The ball hit the flag and dropped a couple of inches from the hole and with that we were all square and heading down the 19th hole. A nail-biting finish got us over the line and we are now in the East Leinster Final which will be played in the K Club on the Palmer course on 1st September.
All the matches were played in great spirit and the players were a credit to their respective clubs. The many supporters out in Seapoint were treated to fantastic golf played by both teams. Many thanks to all who traveled out to Seapoint, it will be great to see all that purple again in the K Club in September.
Well done and congratulations to Managers Neasa McKiernan and Bernadette Flynn.
East Leinster Final will be played in the K Club, Palmer Course on 1st September 2019.
