Harry Joes Golf Society
On Saturday 12th September we had our President’s Prize competition. The current President is Mick Ryan of Knockanure who was one of the founding members of the club and also a past captain (1992).
The venue was Dromoland Castle Co. Clare. It was one of the few times this summer that the sun came out and helped to make it a great day out. The winner on the day was James O’Mahony with 38pts, second was John Ryan (Upperchurch) with 36pts and third was the President himself with 34pts.
This was also our final outing for the year. It was great to play so many top class courses and new venues for a lot of members this year. It is great to see the society going so well. Currently there are 70 members with an average of 50 playing in each outing. The dates and venues have not been chosen yet for next year. As soon as they are they will be published on our website, www.harryjoes.com.
An AGM will be held at some stage later in the year. One will appreciate it takes a lot of work to organise events, collect money, buy prizes etc. The more people that volunteer to do these jobs the better. As they say “many hands make light work”.
A job well done!
And after….. The long-awaited road repairs have been carried out on Ileigh Road much to the relief and satisfaction of the locals. Thanks to Councillor Pauline Coonan’s efforts the job finally got done!
