Lady President Nell Moroney’s Prize and a Hole in 1!!!!

What an eventful day! Ladies turned up in their droves to celebrate with Lady President Nell (if we could find her!!) on Sunday last. There was a great atmosphere as each headed off with the intention of bringing home Nell’s wonderful prize at the end of the day. However, that honour fell with Liz, who returned a very respectable 38 points. Liz was left waiting though, as there were no less than six cards with the same points, so, Mary Braddish, Norrie and Phil had to double and treble check the each card, and sure enough, Liz was the worthy winner (on the back 3)…. so close and yet so far for poor Peg and yours truely!! :(      but well done Liz, and well deserved!

Anyway, what about it …..we all enjoyed a great night, with Josephine’s fitting tribute to our Lady President, followed by  Nell’s absolutely brilliant speech, reminding us all of the the day she first passed through the gates of NCW golf club and the fun and enjoyment golf has given her since she “made the move”!

Well done Lady President on a wonderful day.

The other highlight of the day was the Hole in ONE! Marian Kennedy Hogan claimed her first hole in one at Newcastlewest on the 10th hole ! Rumour has it she used an 8 iron…

Now, according to Golf Digest, the odds of an amateur golfer scoring a hole in 1

is 12,500:1   !!!! But, our Marian is now in the position of being able to boast no less than 3… one in Adare, one in Ballybunion and one in NCW!!

Well done Marian, that’s some achievement.
