Husband and Wife Fourball Winners – Brian & Elizabeth Fehily
Husband & Wife Open Fourball Competition – 2017
The annual Husband & Wife Open Competition was held on Saturday the 22nd of July last.
This was the 48th staging of the event which attracted a very strong entry. Over 100 couples played in this year’s competition, over 50% of which were visitors from other golf clubs. This year’s competition was sponsored by King Tree Services and played in a fourball stableford format which proved to be very popular with the participants.
The talk on the day was that the course was in superb condition, that the organisers were doing a terrific job, food was top class, BUT the greens were fast, faster than they had been all season, so the course was playing tough.
But that didn’t phase the our own Brian and Elizabeth Fehily who with a magnificent score of 46 points won the coveted trophy. Brian unfortunately had to attend a U2 event (!) in Croke Park, but Elizabeth was on hand to accept the trophy and round off ‘A Beautiful Day’. We all send our congratulations.
We heard nothing but good feedback from the event, and we, therefore, also congratulate the organisers – Patrica and Sean Heffernan, Sheila and Jimmy Maher, Nuala and Ken LeGros, and Carmel and Dermot Bradshaw. Thanks too to all the helpers on the day and in particular to our sponsors King Tree Services.
