Thursday 7th June saw a new venture of a Golf Outing in Muskerry Golf Club.
The idea was conceived in Dubrovnik and we had a “reunion” outing after that.
Many people there expressed a desire to have another such outing.
There was a good turnout of 29 people taking part, divided almost straight down the middle between men and women.
Joe made up teams of three, based on the relative handicaps of the players. There were 10 teams as Joe press-ganged a Muskerry member to join the last team!
We played a scramble which meant that everyone was involved irrespective of their handicap. This form of competition lends itself to the social aspect of the outing.
The winning team was made up of Albert Groarke, John Purcell and Kathleen Long. They had a great score of 65 which won by a shot.
The prizes, which were subsidised by the R. T. A. I, were bought from Fred Twomey who has just recently taken up the position of Professional in Muskerry.
After the Golf most, if not all, of the players enjoyed the Catering in the Clubhouse and consequently were present for the Prize-giving.
The feedback was most positive and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Everybody expressed an interest in playing such a format again and Joe says he would have no problem organising it.
