Inter-Club Golf:
On Saturday 31st August, Gowran came oh-so-close to a Leinster Pennant in the Jimmy Bruen Shield. Having defeated New Forest in the semi final in the morning, they faced Clontarf in the final in the afternoon. As would be expected at this stage, it was very tight and tense and came down to the deciding game where Clontarf holed a birdie putt from 25ft on the 20th green to claim the victory.
Hard luck to everyone involved from Gowran Park and well done to Clontarf on their win.

Remember members, next year you too could be involved in representing your club! There are various competitions that cater for all handicap ranges – the only real stipulation common to most of these inter-club competitions is that you have played at least 4 qualifying competitions in the previous year so now is the time to make sure you make yourself eligible for next year! Qualifying competitions means singles competitions where you handicap can be adjusted so winter ones don’t count.

Midweek 9-Hole:
The 9 hole competition continues throughout the summer. It’s a great social evening and a chance to get some practice in before the more serious competition on the weekend!
Just show up on the Wednesday evening (around 5pm) and you’ll always get someone to join up with. There is also a special 9-hole menu laid on in the bar upstairs afterwards.
