I would like to start off with news of our Junior Cup team. The team unfortunately were beaten by Ballybunion in Thurles Golf Club on Saturday in the Munster semi-final. It was a very close tie which came down to the last match which went all the way to the 19th hole. This panel under the strong leadership of Liam Lenihan had been working away for the last 3 months with the goal of winning a pennant. This year wasn’t the year but Liam would like to thank all the players for their great efforts and hopes to see them all back next year. The panel would also like to thank all the supporters who travelled down on Saturday, it was great to see the Shannon faces on the first tee cheering them on.
We have a big weekend ahead of us in Shannon. Our very popular President Pat McCarthy hosts his prize Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Tee times are available online or by contacting the pro shop on (061) 471551.
The mixed foursomes competition continues this Thursday. It is a semi open event so please bring along a friend who is member of another club to play if you wish. There was great turnout last week. Artie Pyke is this week’s sponsor and a big shout out to all sponsors to date.
The Mixed gala will take place on the 13th of September so please put this in your diary.
