Kildalkey Captain David Dolan (right) retains the Ryder Cup from Marcies in 2016

2016 Ryder Cup v Marcies

The 5th edition of the Annual Ryder Cup event between Kildalkey GS and Marcies (Trim) took place on Saturday 17th September, 2016 at Knightsbrook Golf Resort, Trim. Kildalkey retained the cup by a score of 10.5 - 7.5 and in so doing are the first to win the series back to back.

Kilalkey and Marcies 2016Congrats to Captain David Dolan and his team on a fine performance, as the title was still in the balance with Marcies 1up with the last two teams still to come in. Four points from four in the final pairs showed either a genius Captain's choice of pairs and start positions or just pure luck. Refreshments and presentations were held in Marcies, Trim. So now, no pressure on our 2017 Captain to again retain the Cup in Kildalkey.

Headford New (Captains Day) - 03/09/2016

Captains winner Anthony Quinn (right) with Captain David Dolan presenting.

Our Captains Day competition was held in Headford (New Course) on a wet and dreary Saturday 3rd September 2016. Thirty four braved the conditions which included five visitors. The Society broke new ground on the day with the inclusion of our first female player in the guise of Bridge Guy aka "Daniel O'Donnell". We hope now the ice has been broken that more will join us in the future. We also welcomed back Ian Kennedy after a year out.

Anthony "Chippie" Quinn emerged victorious with back to back Captains on a score of 36. Brian Carroll and James Monaghan were second and third respectively separated on a count back with a score of 32. Cormac "cut-again" Reilly, Brian Giles and Jim O'Neill took 4th to 6th placings.

Captains DinnerBrian Carroll netted the longest drive with Captain David Dolan nearest the pin. Mick McGrath won the visitors prize. There was a three way split for the 2's with C.Reilly, M.McGrath and B.Guy carding a 2.

Captains Dinner Following dinner, Captain David Dolan made his presentations and welcomed back Ian Kennedy and also Brige Guy our first female player. He also thanked the committee for their efforts during the year and our event sponsors, namely Oliver Henry Electrical, Stephen Kelly - Kinside, the Carroll brothers - Progressive Plumbing and Cormac Reilly - Arch Plumbing & Heating.

Following formal proceedings, a good night was had back at the Snug House. There is small matter of our annual Ryder Cup with Marcies (Trim) on the immediate horizon and the eagerly awaited first trip to Portugal in October followed by our last outing in November for the Turkey shoot which will unveil our golfer of the year for 2016.

A return to Druids Glen didn't disappoint as conditions were excellent. Thirty one made the trip which included seven visitors.

One of the bridges in Druids Glen GC Category winners were C1 - Brian Heverin, C2 - Cormac Reilly and C3 - Brendan Corrigan.

Moyvalley - 14/05/2016

Moyvalley winner Brian Heverin (left) with Stephen Kelly event sponsor presenting.

Our third outing was held in sunny and balmy Moyvalley. Conditions were a taster for the Portugal trip it was that good. Twenty nine played on the day which included four visitors. The spoiler for the day however was the course had been sanded recently and greens were not great. Even so scores were pretty good. Golfer-of-the-year 2015 Brian Heverin won the day with a score of 38 points. That sees him break into the single figure handicap in good company. William Monaghan took second spot on 36 points with Stephen Kelly a close third, on a count back, with 35 points.

Brendan Corrigan Category winners were C1 - Anthony Quinn, C2 - Des Gray and C3 - Karl Stewart. For the second time in a row, Brian Heverin ousted James Monaghan's longest drive effort. Tom Collins was nearest the pin and he also claimed the front 9. Back 9 went to Eamonn Gilsenan. The visitors prize went to Ian Dowd with a score of 35.

2's were carded by Bernard Duignan and Peter Kelly who shared the spoils. Powerscourt is our next venue on the 18th June.

Poor Brendan Corrigan (left) bit off more than he could chew. For every action, there is an equal and opposite re-action. The water didn't take kindly to being hit with a club and took revenge.

This seasons second outing took us to scenic Slieve Russell in Cavan and was kindly sponsored by Oliver Henry. It was a bitterly cold 4c but dry nonetheless. Twenty seven made the trip. Brian Carroll put his stamp on things by winning with a score of 40 points. Another member of the 40 club. It was a high scoring day with a back-to-back second place going to Cormac Reilly on 38 points followed close in third by Brian Heverin on 37 points.

Category winners were C1 - Trevor Darling, C2 - Steven Kelly and C3 - William Monaghan. Brian Heverin also bagged the longest drive with a cracking strike on the 18th to brush aside James Monaghan's effort. Trevor also took nearest the pin for a prize sponsored by Ian Kennedy.
