Men's Results

Sunday morning saw a lot of men take to the course nursing sore heads from the 70th celebrations from the night before. However they saw the best part of the day weather wise and took advantage of it to post some very decent scores, all things considered. First on the day was Vivian Connell just pipping Liam Murphy past the post. Congrats gentlemen.

Seniors Results


Ponce DeLeon travelled to South America to search for the fountain of youth, if he had known it existed in Lough Ramor with the proof visible in the longevity of our mid week warriors he could have saved himself a voyage. The winners of this weeks competition was the team of: Helen O'Reilly, Jim Courtney, Peter Curran and (who else) Frank Fahy with 58.3, 2nd was the team of Mary Whelan, John Clarke and Vincent Lee 62.3. Well done all.


It's very appropriate on this topic to make special mention to two distinguished seniors, still playing and still winning, namely Louis McQuade and Ita Clarke. Louis won a Captains prize in 1948 and has been on a winning team for the past two weeks. Ita was Lady Captain in 1965 the 20th anniversary of the club, a wonderful memoir of which was on display in the club house this weekend. The fact that the club celebrated 70 years in existence and that these two influential members are still playing and loving this game, is testimony to the uniqueness of Virginia Golf Club and it's members. Ita and Louis it's a pleasure having you play every week.


70th Anniversary Competition and Party


Friday and Saturday saw a 3 club, singles stableford competition in honour of our 70th birthday with the emphasis on fun and participation. The winner was our Vice Captain Gary Corcoran, whose iron play was described as sublime by the Captain and Gary did not bring a putter, a trend he may continue. The ladies prize was won by Margaret Ormiston and the 9 hole prize by Sheila Courtney. Well done all, a great effort.


That then led us to Lisgrey House for food and dancing where some of the 70s outfits had to be seen to be believed, with our Captain sporting a colourful hairband ( ironically) and our PRO looking like Ronnie Drew on his holidays. It's very fair to say the atmosphere was one of celebration, comradeship and enjoyment, words you have come to expect from this club. To those who attended many thanks for making it what it was, the club is only as enjoyable as the fun it's members have, we're here for a good time, not a long time. To the organisers, thanks as always, and to Lisgrey House many thanks for your continued sponsorship.
