GOLF | Members of Punter’s Golf Society enjoy their first trip to Co Meath Golf Club
The Punter’s Golf Society held their latest outing of the year at Co Meath Golf Club near Trim recently.
This was a course that none of the players had experienced before so it was a pleasure to play somewhere new. The course was in excellent condition and should certainly grace a golf society’s list of venues to play.
The weather was sunny for the first nine holes but changed on the back nine. Thankfully, it only rained around the 10th hole and on the final hole as well.
The field of 20 players came in with some good scores. In Category One, and playing to his handicap, was winner Buster Carroll on 36 points. Chris Murden was in second place on 35 while Eamonn O’Farrell finished in third on 32 points.
In Category Two, the winner with a brilliant score — that included seven pars — was Pete Clarke on 39 points. Second was Colm O’Halloran on 34 with Tony Casey third on 31 points.
There were two novelty prizes on offer, Nearest the Pin going to Paul Hughes with Chris Murden taking the Longest Drive.
The prizes were presented later in the evening in The Punters Bar. The society would like to thank Paul Curran for the safe transportation to and from the venue, to Tony’s Pizzeria for the food later in the evening and to all the bar staff for the excellent service.
The next outing is in Corrstown Golf Club, Kilsallaghan, Co Dublin on Wednesday, June 11th and the society is looking forward to seeing as many players there as possible.
