The George Roe Cup & Wednesday Golf Competitions

The curtains have fallen on what was a wonderful inaugural year for the George Roe Cup and Wednesday Competitions, both of which renewed links with the past in Elm Park Golf Club. The Cup is named after an esteemed owner of Nutley House who resided here in the mid-nineteenth century. While the Wednesday golf recalled a competition played from 1939 until 1970 with many memories of members being recalled. From feedback we have received, most have welcomed their introduction into the Men's Diary and will feature in the future.

We are most grateful for the support from the members throughout the season - we had full time sheets practically every week. Thanks also to sponsors - Stephen Maher and family who donated the Cup, Peter Morgan, Garry Saul and Diageo.  To Peter Morgan, Aimee and Alan for their assistance in running the competitions and to Caddymasters John Byrne, Lee and Rogelius for support and advice.

Over 120 members participated in 16 competitions (plus 1 rained off) beginning on  April 24th and finishing on September the 4th  with a very stimulating 4 man scramble - certainly on the list of competitions for next year. The highlight of the season was of course the George Roe Cup singles competition on August 21st played over 18 holes followed by fine dining (thank you Paul, Derek and staff) . The first name to appear on the trophy is that of John Kenny with a great score of 40 points. Congratulations to John.  Second was Morgan Crowe snr. also with 40 points. Other winners were Marcel Murphy 39 points,  Jack Gleeson 38 points,  William Scott 38 points, Tom McAuliffe 37 points, Thomas Ryan 37 points and  1st nine - Brian Hughes 24 points, and  2nd nine Peter Wallace 20 points. 

Yes the curtains have fallen for now, on what was an interesting and most enjoyable inaugural golf competition in the Golf Diary of 2019. We do hope the golfers in the picture below have resolved their issue before the 2020 season commences!
