Pierce Purcell – Saturday 17th/Sunday 18th May

 

Gowran Park were delighted to host the Pierce Purcell qualifying round over last weekend – 12 teams went to post on Saturday for the first round and after a tense days golf and scrutiny by our GUI Officials, Waterford, Carlow, Borris and Gowran Park qualified for the semi-final spots on Sunday morning.  After a spirited performance by the host club, Carlow proved too strong for Gowran and went through for the final, 3 matches to 2.  Carlow overcame Borris in the other semi-final – however came up short against a stronger Waterford team who were well practiced ahead of the tournament.  All competitors were very complimentary of Gowran Parks’ facilities and the excellent condition on the course in particular.
