New Ross Seniors: It must be the good weather that brought the veterans out last Thursday when we had 14 teams taking part in the weekly competition. With little or no wind prevailing and forward markers in play, high scores were to be expected and that's the way it turned out with the first three teams home all breaking the 90-point barrier.

In the number one winning spot were Andy Ronan (15), John Murphy (16), Johnny Watson (18) and Martin Burke (25) with 93 points. Second one point behind (92) came Tony Harford (13), Michael Gannon (17), Paddy Bennett (20) and Fr. Jim Curtis (20).

The 91 points scored by Patsy Farrell (15), Michael Lee (16), Aidan O'Connor (19) and Jamesie Wallace (23) were good enough to claim third prize. There was only one nearest the pin prize and that was won by Wiilie Whitty on the eleventh hole.

In the draw for places on teams in the upcoming Pro-Am on Friday, July 15, the lucky winners were John Browne, Michael Lee and Pat Traynor.

Next Thursday, July 14, we have no game as the 'Meals on Wheels' benefit day takes place, but we are back on July 21 as usual.

In the meantime the cut-off point for entries to our outing to Dungarvan on Monday, July 25, is Friday, July 15. This is in order to have teams and tee-times ready for inclusion in the local papers on Tuesday, July 19, and for display in the clubhouse on Thursday, July 21.

This outing represents outstanding value for money in as much as we play in the Dungarvan open Senior singles competition and we also have our own four-person team event with extra prizes on offer included, and all for a mere €15. Anyone who has not booked in already and wishes to play, please contact Jamesie Murphy on 085-1846172 by phone or text as soon as possible.

With the New Ross course closed for coring and sanding from Monday, September 5, we have organised a two-night stay and play that week at the renowned Ballykisteen Hotel and Golf Resort at Limerick Junction in Tipperary. Full details later.


Our recent outing was held in St. Helen's and 52 golfers took part.

Results: 1, Richie O'Grady (14), 36 points; 2, Paul Barden (27), 35 points; 3, Mark O'Mahoney (4), 34 points; Cat. 1, George Foley, Ned Browne, Tommy Kent; Cat. 2, Mick Ryan, Kenny Barry, Tom Murphy; Cat. 3, John Barden, Paddy Banville, Aidan Wallace; front nine, Lorcan Barden; back nine, David Doran; nearest the pin, Cathal Sinnott; visitor, Cathal Sinnott.

Our next outing is Marky Murphy's Captain's prize on Saturday, July 16, in Mount Wolseley Golf Club.


The third annual New Ross Golf Club Pro-Am is the focus this week, as a host of Ireland's top professionals take to the fairways in the Culcita Garden Furniture & Outdoor Living-sponsored event.

The Pro Am takes place on Friday (July 15) with David Higgins returning to defend his title. European tour winners Damien McGrane and Simon Thornton also return, with the 2014 winner, Damian Mooney, another likely to be in contention.

There are still a small number of team and individual places available, and if you would like to take part please get in contact with James or Paul in the Pro Shop (051-421433). All are welcome to come along to the club to watch the professionals in action.

There was great news on the teams front for New Ross as their All-Ireland fourball trophy team advanced to the Leinster semi-finals with a very good win over Portarlington last weekend. New Ross had the advantage of having three matches at home with just two in the away venue, and they made that advantage count by winning all three matches in Tinneranny.

Patsy Farrell and Robert O'Dwyer led the charge with a victory out the course, and Pat Whelan and Jamsie Wallace, and John Murphy and Tony Wallace, added the necessary wins to see New Ross through to the semi.

That meant that no heroics were required on the road from Leo Booth and Des Redmond, and Steve Travis and Martin Forristal. Junior Cashin's team will meet the winners of Castle Barna and Greystones in the semi-final. Well done to all involved.

There was not such good news for the Cullen Trophy team which lost out to a strong Bray outfit in their quarter-final match. With all matches taking place in Bray, it was always going to be an uphill battle for New Ross to come out on top.

Home advantage proved too much, particularly around the greens, with New Ross putting up some strong resistance before losing out. The team, managed by Rory Hussey and Mary Kavanagh, was made up of Margaret Furlong and Eamon Dungan, Donal Hosey and Ann Banville, Davy Doran and Ger Mackey, Ger Ronan and Maria Burford, and Robbie Farrell and Kate Mackey. Well done to all involved on the run to the quarter-finals.

Last weekend's competition was a very well-supported open fourball sponsored by John and Betty Moran of the Theatre Tavern. The winners with a great score of 48 points were Mullinavat men John Aylward (16) and Tom Duggan (19).

The father and son pairing of Hughie O'Connor (17) and Hugh O'Connor (15, Hibernian) took second place with 46 points, seeing off Charlie Collins (16) and Ger Freyne (18) into third place on the countback. Thank you to John and Betty Moran of The Theatre Tavern for their continued and generous support.

In last week's Tuesday fourball, winners Seán Murphy (16) and Pat Whelan (17) were the first pairing of the summer to hit 40 points - great shooting! Tommy Liston (7) and Tom Tyler (16), and Paul Cleary (10) and Charlie Collins (16), took the category prizes with 36 points.

Next weekend the Military Cup sponsored by Sweeney's Garden Centre takes place. There are also Saturday tee-times available.

Finally, we wish a speedy recovery to club Captain Derek Ronan who went under the knife this week. No doubt he will soon be back to doing what he does best over all 19 holes!
