The Liffey Valley Kia Open full time-sheet produces great scores
The Liffey Valley Kia Open, held on Thursday 23rd August, again proved very popular with members and visitors and attracted a full time-sheet. We are very grateful to Rita and Gabriel Keane for their generous sponsorship.
Like the Kia Car, the Open had ‘the power to surprise’ and our own Louise Halpin (9), Mary K O’Mahony (12), and Siobhan Byrne (13), were surprised that their great score of 90 points was not good enough to take top honours when they were narrowly beaten on the last 9.
We congratulate Echo Tong (22) Elmgreen, Gillian Poon (23) St Anne’s, Wenjuan Zhao (31) Headfort on their win. Their team also recorded 90 points. Echo Tong in her acceptance speech mentioned how she loved playing the Newlands course (she had won in Newlands previously in the Husband and Wife competition) and how she delighted she was to record three birdies as part of her contribution to the winning card.
Well done to the winners, and many thanks to Kia Liffey Valley for their sponsorship – it was another great day in Newlands.
