Men’s Golf: The Men’s Winter League got off to a slow start with very unfavourable weather conditions. There is still lots of time as it will run for five weeks and you can play as many rounds per week as you wish but only five weeks will count. As the competition is between teams from the local parish or in some cases a combination of parishes it should make for a lively competition.

Seniors Golf: The winners of the Seniors Scramble on 29th October 2019 were: John Grogan, Johnny Hannigan, Tom Tuohy and Tommy Moloney.
