Plucks Golf Society

The first outing of Plucks Golf Society was held last Saturday in Powerscourt (West Course) Golf Club. Incoming Captain Greg O'Donnell welcomed the 30+ members to a wet and windy Powerscourt but the conditions certainly did not affect Tom Creavin, who shot a wonderful 38 points to win the outing by three shots. Second was Paul Murphy (35 points) and third was Antony McGrath (35 points). Category One Winner was new member Danny Nolan (34 points), Category two was Brendan Finnerty (33 points) and Category three was won by Shay Quinn (26 points).

The Front Nine winner was Trevor Carr and the back nine prize was won by Paddy Byrne Snr, who said he played in similar conditions in the late 1940s. Two nearest the pin winners in Louis Nally and Paul Murphy and longest drive was hit by Bob O'Donnell. Next outing is in Arklow GC on Saturday, April 13.

The draw for the last 32 of the Singles Match play took place on the night and is as follows: Paddy Byrne Snr v Eddie Byrne, Mark Quinn v Greg O'Donnell, Trevor Carr v Kevin Molloy, Jim Messett v Paul Dunne, Danny Nolan v Cian Bermingham, Mick Holly v Brendan Finnerty, Chris O'Neill v Emmet Kinsella, Bob O'Donnell v Paul Murphy, Gerry Touhy v Colm Griffith, Tom Byrne v Ray Nally, John Lyster v Louis Nally, Anthony McGrath v Liam Finnerty, Graham Tighe v Ed Mulligan, and Robert Moore v Jimmy Davis.

First player drawn has choice of course and all ties must be played by the next outing on April 13.
