Williams & Kelly shoot the lights out


IPGC golf from The Tara Court Golf Group

Sunday, Feb. 9, St. Andrews – Stableford

We were at St Andrews today for a pleasant change and even better we were there at Green Valley prices as they moved us over to accommodate Lewiinski’s for their Captain’s Day. 

As usual it was a pleasure to play this course with it’s beautiful fairways and fast greens.  While it can actually be a very difficult layout, some of our players today made it look very easy with fantastic scores.  Michael Williams had the best of the day with 45 points to win the B Flight and was closely followed by Declan Kelly who had 43 and was the winner of the A Flight.

Michael Williams and Declan Kelly.

Teddy Lodge was second in A Flight with 35 points and third was Barney Sheedy with 34.  Second in B Flight was Frank Bradley with 36 and third was Brendan Roddy with 34.

Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to Teddy Lodge as this was his last game for this trip, he will be missed very much as he had been checking all the score cards and doing the presentation for us for the past few months.

A Flight

1st Declan Kelly (15) 43pts

2nd Teddy Lodge (11) 35pts

3rd Barney Sheedy (10) 34pts

B Flight

1st Michael Williams (20) 45pts

2nd Frank Bradley (18) 36pts

This week we didn’t have our usual competitions but instead joined up with Solar Golf who operate out of The Tara Court and who run the annual Tara Court Cup.  This a two-day competition takes place on different courses and our thanks to Callum and Stuart from Solar Golf for their excellent organisation and for two very good days golf.

The Cup was won by Johan Collins with a combined score of 78 points and  two of our regular players, Tony Pike and Robert Hanson, came in second and third with 72 and 71 points respectively.

We will all be looking forward to playing in it again next year and reclaiming the Cup for one of our regular players.  Thanks goes to the management of The Tara Court for their sponsorship and the beautiful meal for the presentation.
