On Sunday last the Club were at Dooks Golf Links for our Annual Exchange Day which is always a highlight on the Killarney members’ calendar. The course was magnificently prepared for our Clifford’s Cash & Carry sponsored event and scoring proved a little difficult given the prevailing windy conditions, so much so that the competition was deemed reduction only for handicapping purposes. Padraig Griffin was one of the early starters and his fine effort of 35 points just prevailed on the strength of a better homeward nine from Jason Arthur. Results: Winner: Padraig Griffin (19) 35 Points, Runner Up: Jason Arthur (5) 35 Points, Third: Tony Walsh (17) 33 Points, 4th Jamie Cronin (20) 33 Points, 5th Pat Casey (27) 32 Points, Category 1 Winner: David Moloney (6) 32 Points, Category 2 Winner: Dan Doona (10) 31 Points, Category 3 Winner: John Hickey (13) 31 Points, Category 4 Winner: Maurice McCarthy (20) 32 Points. On Sunday next 16th September the David Keating Golf sponsored Singles will be played on our Killeen course.
