Woodbrook golfers taste victory
THERE WAS a victory dinner at Woodbrook Golf Club, to celebrate their win at the Old Conna Seniors Invitational Golf Competition.
The sixteen competing teams consisted of 12 players over 55 years of age with a golf handicap of not less than 18 on January 1.
Kevin Meehan managed the Woodbrook GC teams, who have an excellent record in the competition having won this year and in 2009.
The 2012 panel of players consisted of a number of Septuagenarians including Harry Brady, Jim O Shea, David Jordan, George Carville, Pat Murphy, Paddy O'Donoghue, Dave Smith and John Swaine.
In the first round they defeated Killiney GC in Killiney. This was followed by a hard fought victory over Milltown GC in Woodbrook.
In the four team final Woodbrook beat the hosts Old Conna, the pre-match favourites Stackstown and Edmondstown.
At a reception in the Woodbrook clubhouse for the victorious team a presentation was made to the manager Kevin Meehan by the Woodbrook GC Captain Kieran Murphy. Kevin is stepping down after a very successful stint as Team Manager.
