Classic Time at Gowran
Our End of Season Classic proved to be a major success. Competitors took to the fairways in Gowran Park from last Wednesday and competition was strong all through the weekend. Over 70 teams competed for the excellent prize of an outing with food for 25 golfers. With 2 scores to count on all holes and 3 on the par 5’s Wexford members L. Doyle and L. Gainfort, and D. Casey (Scarke) and E. Cullen (Coollattin) took the leading spot on 108 points. Second place of an outing for 15 golfers went to D. Farrell, J. Lawlor, T. O’Connor and P. Henry from Carlow golf club who scored 106 points. Gowran Park member Aldo Marini along with his society members Gianni Valente, Domo Aprilia and Antonio Aprilia took third place with a fine score of 105 points.
One other highlight of the weekend was a hole in one – a first for J.J. Byrne (St. Helen’s Bay), playing off 20 who scored an ace on the Par 3 16th hole on Saturday. All competitors were also entered for a free draw for membership of Gowran Park for 2014 – this draw will take place on Saturday 8th December coinciding with our members Christmas party.
