The course is in great condition.We had the Kilbrae cup on Saturday last and Brendan Kelly was victorious with a score of 43 pts. Well done Brendan who is down to his lowest handicap ever. All the lessons with Seamus are paying dividends. Well done also to Cairns who came second. It is the Jazz n Blues weekend next with open 4BBB competitions each day (any Combinations). The Clubhouse is open each weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) for food. What better place to come to get away from all crowds and the music in the town over the weekend. Don’t be afraid to let your friends know. The Club has secured two All Ireland Final Football Tickets and we are currently running a draw for these tickets. The lines are priced (one line for €5.00 and three lines for €10.00). There are sheets available in the clubhouse with twenty lines on each sheet or you can purchase lines behind the bar or in the shop.All Sheets have to be returned to the clubhouse by Thursday the 18th of September and the draw will take place on Friday 19th September.Please try and sell a few lines for the club if you can. You might be lucky enough to win tickets to the final.Results: Wednesday 3rd Sept 2014 Open Singles1st Kevin Ward 41pts BOT2nd Donal Boyle 41ptsGross Brendan Kelly 28pts3rd Gary McGrath 39pts Cat Frank Kelly 37pts9’s Anthony Gallagher 21pts BOT and Michael Cahilane 21pts BOTCSS 38ptsSaturday 6th September 2014 Kilbrae Cup 1st Brendan Kelly 43pts2nd Cairns Witherow 39ptsGross James Brogan 29pts3rd Adrian Cummings 38ptsCat H.

The Band, which by all accounts, “made the party” have again been booked. Food, although yet to be arranged, will be along the same lines as last year. The cost will again be €30 per person and numbers will be strictly limited to sixty people on a “first come” basis. No tickets will be issued, and bookings can only be confirmed on receipt of full payment. Mary will be in charge of all bookings and as this will sell out very quickly I would advise those interested to contact her immediately and pay by card over the phone.As this is not priced as a fund raising exercise there will be no refund for those having booked but unable to attend.If however, you are unable to attend please contact Mary and you will be put in touch with someone on the waiting list willing to buy your ticket.Dunfanaghy ladies – NotesAs the summer draws to a close, there is still plenty of golf being played in Dunfanaghy.
