Mary McKenna Team March on to Leinster Quarter Finals
The Mary McKenna team went on to claim the one match they needed in the return matches against Grange Castle GC in the Mary McKenna Diamond Trophy. A great team went out to Grange Castle for the one point needed and thankfully they brought it home. Next up was Black Bush GC and the matches were played in beautiful sunshine on Sunday, 12th May. The matches were very close at the end and it took another tour to the 20th hole before we could claim the winning point. The matches were played in great spirit and I am delighted to report that we are now in the Leinster Quarter Finals. Many thanks to the managers, Nuala LeGros and Mary K. O’Mahony and all the team and their caddies for their time and commitment. Best of luck to the Mary Macs.
Senior Cup Team Bow out in Great Style
Our Senior Cup team went out and played in Dun Laoghaire GC on Saturday 18th May and represented us so well. It is a great honour to play in this prestigious competition and our Senior Cup team played great golf and were great ambassadors for Newlands GC. Castle GC were great opposition and all matches were played in great spirit. It always comes down to one or two putts, the odd bounce of the ball, but we get better every year. We will look forward to supporting next year’s team and hopefully they will achieve a win in this great competition. Many thanks to the managers, Genevieve Tracey and Pat O’Leary and all the team for their time and commitment. Well done Team.
Junior Cup Team Through to Next Round
Congratulations are in order to a great team who played against Westmanstown GC in Slade Valley GC on Sunday 19th May. The fantastic golf played on the day ensured their progress into the next round. Three matches were already won when we could call in the other two matches which were 3 up and 4 up. We will certainly look forward to the next round in Carton House on Sunday 16th June. Many thanks to the manager, Siobhan Byrne, and all the team for a job very well done.
Boyne Cup Team Bring us Back to 20th Hole
Hard luck to another great team who played so well against Edmondstown on Monday 20th May. With three matches away and just two matches at home it was always going to be hard work to get through to the next round of the Boyne Cup. All the players played so well and it was another nail biting finish with the deciding matches out on the 19th and 20th holes. Luck was not on our side this time and the honours went to Edmondstown GC who go through to the next round. Many thanks to the managers, MaryPat Prendergast and AnnMarie McGarry, all the players and their caddies for all their hard work, time and commitment to the team. We look forward to next year.
