The club's annual Gerry Ryan Memorial Golf classic took place in the Waterford Golf Club last Friday in mixed weather conditions, which didn’t affect the turnout.
The winners of the Golfers competition on 53 pts were Eoin Hurley, Ritchie Murphy and Ray Barry, with Flynn’s Bar second on 52 pts following a count back.
John Byrne, Pat Cunningham, Jim Byrne were winners of the mixed section on 47 pts, while the Countrystyle team of John Mallon, Ritchie Alward and Eamonn Connolly came second with 46 pts. John Mallon also scored a hole in one on the 13th for good measure.
In the non-golfers section Andrew Heffernan, Sean Flynn and Graham Penkert were winners on 52pts followed by Flynn’s Bar second team on 48pts. Longest drive was from Lee Halligan with a massive drive, and local school teacher Aidan Rynne was nearest the pin.
Prize giving took place on the night in Flynn’s Bar. A big thanks to all who participated in the Golf classic, and also to the Ryan family for their continued involvement with the club, also thanks to Harry Ewing of Waterford Golf Club for use of the course.
