Cullen comes through at the Valley


IPGC Golf from Tara Court Golf Group

Sunday, March 8, Green Valley – Stableford

Back to our usual spot at Green Valley today for our Sunday game.  Now that low season is near and the group is getting smaller we decided to have just one flight and George Cullen, the only one to play to his handicap, was the winner with thirty six points.

Coming in second place was Kevin Blake with thirty five and Paddy McGowan took third after edging Phil Brown on a count back, both on 33.  Shaun Merriman completed the podium in fifth with thirty two.

Joe McArdle had two 2’s and John Deardon had single to share the pot.

1st George Cullen (12) 36pts

2nd Kevin Blake (9) 35pts

3rd Paddy McGowan (13) 33pts

4th Phil Brown (15) 33pts

5th Shaun Merriman (10) 32pts

Tuesday, March 10, Pattana – Stableford

Today we were at Pattana, a very beautiful course and in excellent condition and also considering the quality of the course it is also good value for money.  We played the B and C courses in that order, which gives you a very tough starting hole.

Kevin Blake and Phil Brown shared the ‘2’s pot with one each.
