This was a strong performance by the Home Team on the Old Course with a 7 – 1 win. Well done to the Team. 6 wins and 2 halved matches was a great result! We now have a useful buffer for
the return fixture at La Cañada on Wednesday 10 January.
We might just get the trophy back!?

Thank you to Brian Rogers and Miceál Sammon for their help in making it a memorable event. Miceál had a superb 44 points with Gerry Byrne helping him to the visitors’ one win over Ciaran Lally and Derek Whelan. They were rewarded with a couple of Irish mugs!

Many thanks to Josh and sponsors Gibfibre for all their work in organising this event.
This was a closely contested encounter which ended in a 5 – 5 result. This means that the Men retain the trophy. Well done to both Teams! On this occasion, to balance the numbers, the Men’s Captain was a late substitute for the Ladies Team. I couldn’t find a skirt big enough to fit, but I did wear pink and I did play from he 60 tees! Thank you to everyone who played.
Old Course: The Bermuda will be treated with microelements and potassium on Wednesday and Thursday. On Monday and Friday the greens and ante-greens will be treated with fertilizer. All week the Team will be dealing with the poa annua.
On Wednesday the greens will get a light tining and a very light top dressing. The Team will also start treating all pine trees against the processionary caterpillar.
Please make sure we maintain a reasonable pace of play at all times. We want to avoid rounds that take over 4.5 hours. We just had a Texas Scramble that took over 5 hours and today I witnessed some rounds with the Juniors on the New Course with three-balls taking over 6 hours. It’s not the way golf should be played!
