Yeats Country Hotel sponsored competition. - Postponed for July due to Captains & Presidents days - resume August
During the summer month the club is running an unsual competition sponsored by Michael O'Hara of Yeats County Inn Curry. Entry is €5 per week and play as often as you like. The competition is open to Ladies and gents. Play 9 hole. Discard the 2 best holes and 2 worst holes and count your score for 5 remaining holes.
Saturday 23rd July was the big event of the year for our Ladies. Lady Captain Pat Kelly pulled out all the stops making sure everything was in order for us. Her compensation was the large number of players in both the 18 Hole Stroke and the 9 Hole Stableford Competitions. Pat's display of prizes in the morning, especially her much sought after 1st prize was all that was needed to get the ladies anxious to get to the 1st tee and hope that Lady Luck and good play would earn them a place at the prize giving table in the evening.
The weather was very favourable and we all enjoyed the highs and lows of the day. Pat with her good humour and unassuming demeanour added so much to the day and afterwards, while enjoying a beautiful meal lifted the spirits of those of us who failed to get to the prize giving table.
Well done Pat, we all had a great day.
