Our Lady Captain Catherine, Catherine Vaughan, Rosemary Buckley and Mary Morgan enjoyed a great day in Antrim GC on 19 August following an invitation from the President, Jim Kane, to play in his President’s Prize Day.
This came about following a chance meeting earlier in the year with Jim, who was playing here in Beaverstown with some friends. Jim and his group have been coming to play courses around this area for the past few years and have always included Beaverstown GC on their ‘tour’. They were most impressed at hearing about the Lambay Golf Triangle and may, as a result, visit us more often in the future.
We are most grateful for the invitation and for the hospitality shown to us by the President, Captain, Lady Captain, and other members of Antrim GC and we look forward to seeing them in Beaverstown again soon.
The Ladies from Beaverstown did the Club proud by winning the Jean Taylor Ladies Golf Classic in Glasson GC last week. Not only did we win but our other team came runners up.
Participants at the event, which is now in its 6th year, were from all over Ireland. The competition was run over two days with a 4 person team format played in pairs. The winning team comprised of Noeleen Murphy, Eileen Meaney, Evelyn Bannon and Catherine Goulding. The runners up were Kathryn O’Hare, Mary Murray, Sheila Dunne, and Joan Kelly (ex Beaverstown member now in Sutton).
Jean Taylor and her organising committee did a fantastic job in having a full programme prepared for the participants with a ‘Welcome Reception’ and dinner on the Monday evening, finishing with a Gala Dinner on the Wednesday evening. The Glasson Country House Hotel & Golf Club, who helped sponsor the event, provided second to none hospitality and service to everybody. As an added bonus, the Sam Maguire Cup made an appearance in the bar on the Tuesday night which created great excitement altogether.
A wonderful time was had by all and our Ladies are looking forward to going again next year, some to defend their title!!
Big congratulations to our junior girls who did our club proud and won the Fingal Junior League for the first time this year. They played their final match in St Anne’s GC on Monday, 21 August. They were lying neck and neck with Rush before the final day and had to endure very wet and windy conditions to take the Trophy.
The team of Chloe and Lucy Flanagan, Seonad Cassidy, Niamh Grealy, Amy Nugent and Holly Foy played consistently good golf from the start of the League and were deserving winners on the final day. The girls were presented with a Trophy and a Pennant, both of which are now taking pride of place in our trophy cabinet. The girls were also each given a pair of converse runners by Mark Buckley and these were presented by the Lady Captain on the evening of the Ladies Apple Harvest Open.
Full credit to Pat MacCallion and his Committee for all the hard work with the Juniors over many years.
Well done again girls.
The Ladies Committee
