Yesterday, Wednesday, our Ladies enjoyed a trip to the Slieve Russel Hotel and Country Club to play the Par 3 course. Tea/Coffee was provided on arrival with ample time for a chat and catch-up before playing partners were drawn and tee-off order arranged.
We had the Course pretty much to ourselves for the front 9 with a few hold-ups on the back 9 as other players took advantage of the lovely sunny morning to get in a round of golf. The deep bunkers and fast greens caught out a few of our Ladies but some great scores were returned none-the-less.
Back in the Clubhouse (just before the heavens opened!) we enjoyed a relaxed lunch, after which the results were announced and prizes awarded as follows:-
1st – Henrietta Willis (47 pts)
2nd – Jenny Williamson (40 pts)
3rd – Lady Captain Carmel Rooney (40 pts on countback)
High Handicapper – Betty Monaghan (37 pts)
Prizes were also awarded to our June and July Singles Competition Winners
June – Linda Armstrong
July – Henrietta Willis
Our thanks to Lady Captain Carmel and Mary Fee for organising such a fantastic day away and to all of our Lady Members who were able to make it – the more the merrier, as they say!!

Club Captain, Billy Reynolds, extends an invitation to all Lady Members of Clogher Valley Golf Club to play in his Captain’s Day Competition.
Ladies may play the competition from Monday, 14th July through to Thursday, 17th July.
Hoping as many Ladies as possible will be able to make it over these four days.
What a day! Lady Captain Carmel pulled out all the stops today for her Ladies’ Open Day with blue skies and sunshine throughout followed by delicious food and great prizes. Unfortunately no-one managed a Hole in One but there was one very close call!!!
We were delighted to see so many Ladies from other Clubs take the time to come along and play today. Thank you to everyone who took part.
Club Winner on the day was Linda Armstrong with a truly impressive 43 pts – great to see Linda playing so well, she really is giving the rest of us ladies a run for our money.
