Huge congratulations from the Ladies Club to our newly crowned All Ireland Champions James O'Connell and Tom Galvin. James and Tom had a fantastic win in Mullingar Golf Club this week in the Holmpatrick Cup. We are all so proud of you bringing home the first ever National title to Castlegregory.


1 Richard Rowan 20pts

2 Sean Leen 16pts on countback.

3 Billy Irwin 16pts



Unfortunately the weather came against us this past weekend but some ardent members did brave the elements and got through the 18. Our Golfer Of The Year, in waiting,Stephen O'Leary claimed his category and we witnessed a very welcome return to Kevin Kerin who topped his category on the day. Well done to those who weathered the storm.
Category A.
Stephen O'Leary (11) 10 down.
Category B.
Kevin Kerin (20) 11 down.



We wish our Club representatives James O'Connell and Tom Galvin all the best when they travel to St.Andrews tomorrow to play in the Grand Final of the Holmpatrick Cup. James and Tom had a great day in the All Ireland Final in Mullingar GC last Friday and returned a brilliant 53 points, so here's wishing them both a brilliant experience and memory that they will always have and perhaps another pennant for us.

Dr.Billy O'Sullivan Shield;
Our squad, led by Sean Spillane, went down by the minimum of margins against the hosts Dooks GC in the Semi Final on Saturday. It was a "first" for most of Sean's squad in this prestigious competition and no doubt these men will have learned a lot from it and will return next season to try and go a step further.


This coming weekend the Fermoyle Cup will be up for winning. Format will be Singles Stableford from the White markers. Fingers crossed for improved weather conditions. Entry via the BRS and play either Saturday or Sunday.


All prize presentations will be held on Sunday 8th October in the clubhouse at 12.00pm. An updated list of prize winners will be sent to all.
