Wintry weather hit the Chestnut Tree Spring League this week with cold wet conditions adversely affecting the play. Teams 5, 7 and 8, led by Vivian Connell, Adrian Kelly and Seamus Sheridan respectively, all carded 100 points in what was a close contest with Seamus carding an excellent 42pts to take the individual prize for the week. Meanwhile Arthur Tormay’s Team 3 still leads the way in the team competition albeit with his lead now 5 points. With each team’s two worst scores to be discarded the contest is still very much alive.
Individual winner Seamus Sheridan 42pts.
No winner of €2 2s on 18th
This week will see the greens being hollow-cored and sanded, a vital exercise to maintain their health. We, in Virginia, pride ourselves on having some of the finest greens in the country and have to put up with a minor inconvenience, twice a year, to ensure this stays this way.
Congratulations are due to VGC member, Liam Brady, an outstanding golfer, on his inclusion in the Cavan GAA Senior squad for the National League match v Tyrone this weekend. Here’s hoping it’s the start of a long inter-county career. Also good to see Irish golfers doing well with Leona Maguire carding a very good result in the ActewAGL Canberra Classic, while Gavin Moynihan, of Baileboro extraction, finishing an excellent 12th place in the Oman Open.
