Ladies Winter Tea
A great evening was had by all at our Winter Tea, as we continue with this great Newlands tradition. It’s a chance to welcome in the new Golfing year and celebrate the past golfing year. And, of course, it’s a chance to share in the Christmas festivities and wish one another every good wish for continued good health at Christmas and the New Year.
We were delighted to welcome our 2018 Gigs who showed their appreciation to Bernie Keppel and the Buddies for all their hard work during the past year. We also welcomed our 2019 Gigs who enjoyed their first function in Newlands. A big thank you to Ger Simpson and Helena O’Connell and all the Buddies for all their hard work looking after them.
We had many prizes to present on the night. Congratulations to Nicola Kearns on winning the Kellsboro Trophy and Esme Murphy on winning the Alice Perry Cup. We also presented our Hole-in-One winners, Grainne Friel and Eileen McLoughlin with their trophies. There were medals presented to our Junior Cup, Junior Foursomes and Mary McKenna teams.
We also presented our Turkey vouchers and Hampers to the many prize-winners. Congratulations to all our winners on the night.
Our Winter League winners were also announced on the night.
First place went to Team 1: Louise Halpin, Fionnuala Croskery, Aisling Neil, Nuala LeGros, Frances Maybery, Marie Fitzgerald, Fionnuala McGlynn and Mary McDonagh.
Runners-Up were Team 3: Ann Hughes, Bernie Keppel, Wendy Hogan, Rita Keane, Sophia McFadden, Edel Tolan, Carmel Shanagher and Marie Dunne.
Just a reminder that the second part of our Winter League, which will be matchplay format, starts in mid-January. This was a new idea last year with a view to getting matchfit in the run up to our inter-club matches. So don’t forget to put your names down on sheet in locker room.
