Golf Outing No 1 – Ashbourne Golf Course – 1st April 2016
(Paul Martin Memorial Trophy)
Our Golf Society kicked off their 2016 season with the Paul Martin Memorial trophy in Ashbourne Golf Course. Despite the tough conditions with wind and later on rain we had almost 40 golfers tee off in this event with a great support from Paul friends.
This year’s captain Tommy Flanagan was top of the pile in the winner’s enclosure with an impressive 38 points and in doing so claimed the first round of points for player of the year and more importantly he received the Paul Martin Memorial Trophy for the year. Tommy did admit that he is in a good spot of form at the moment and was delighted to receive the Paul Martin Trophy as he and Paul went back a long way.
The results were as follows:
1st – Tommy Flanagan (playing off 13) 38 points
2nd – John O’Hara (playing off 24) 33 points (B9)
1st – Joe Dervan (playing off 6) 30 points
