The first of our men's Blue Riband majors played out over the weekend under the watchful eye of President Alice. On a testing three days weatherwise the men produced some memorable and competitive golf.

Five pars on the back nine for Lar Mooney (16) produced a net 70 and saw him claim Alices prize with a shot to spare. Lar was out in 35 with pars on 2, 3 and 9 and back in 35. Having turned he went into overdrive with four consecutive pars from 10 to 13 and another on 16. As greatness beckoned, the nerves struck on the last two holes but his brilliance through the turn ensured that he maintained his grasp on first place. A great win Lar with some brilliant golf and its onwards and upwards for the rest of season.

Maurice Dunne (32) had set the clubhouse target on Friday with an outward nine of 39 and an inward nine of 32. Pars on 10, 11 and 13 saw the blood rushing to the head as Maurice moved into pole position. But he held his nerve brilliantly through a nervy final three holes and was the golf equivalent of crickets nightwatchman. Only Lar managed to better his score over the final two days, a testament to the quality of Maurices golf first day out.

In third place we had Tommy Hamill (18),on countback behind Maurice, also on Friday. Out in 36 and back in 35 Tommy had pars on 9, 12 and 14 but just couldn't find the extra par needed to push himself into the winners enclosure! Great golf though Tommy, well done.

Huge congratulations to Derek Wynne (5) who took the best gross prize with a 77. Birdies on 4 and 13 with eleven pars underpinned a terrific round of golf. But for mishaps on 6 and 17 this could have been a winning card. Well done and congratulations Derek.

We had four classes with the Class 1 going to Tom Hogan (11) with a net 74. That was 118 holes for Tom in less than 24 hours, he is going for 236 next weekend! Niall McDonnell (13), who according to him had a terrible round of net 75, took second place in the class on countback. Out in 40 and back in 35, two birdies on 5 and 11 proved to be pivotal. Enough to edge Finbarr O'Mahony into third place. A birdie on 3 seemed to set Finbarr up for a great Saturday afternoon but he just couldn't capitalise as the round evolved.

If you want competitiveness well Class 2 was the place to be! Dr Pat McCarthy took the honours with a net 72 on countback from both Gary Walsh and Tim O'Neill. Width of the proverbial credit card between them all in the end!

Class 3 went to the evergreen Barry McCall with a net 71 comfortably holding off Eamonn Clifford and Kevin Forsyth, both on 73.

It was Garvan Clarke who took the honours in Class 4 with a net 74 from Joe Gaffney and Tom Doddy on 75 and 76 respectively.

A great weekend of golf, congratulations to all that participated and well done to all of the winners.

Thank you to President Alice who as usual proved to be the consummate host!
