Ladies Challenge Cup Match Report
Our Challenge Cup team took to the fairways to kick off our Inter Club campaign on Saturday, 23rd March. These first-round matches started in brilliant sunshine at home as Liz Cogan with Nessa McKiernan as caddie, Lylia Crossan with her caddie Marie Dunne and Aisling Curtis with Dad, Ciaran on her bag, played their hearts out in a very tough test. While we were willing the team at home over the line, Angelique Scolard with caddie Wendy Hogan and Helena O’Connell with Hilary Kenny as caddie, were battling it out down in Naas Golf Club. There it took 20 holes to separate the two teams but luck was not on our side as the light faded and the honours went to Naas Golf Club. Lylia was also on to her 20th hole when she was called in.
This Challenge Cup team played brilliantly and the matches were very tight right up to the very end. The players can take a bow, not giving up easily and they did Newlands proud. Well done and lucky us, we get to do it all again next year!
