In the glorious sunshine our ladies enjoyed the last big event of the year, The Ann Marie McHugh Memorial Trophy & Lady Members Day. We thank The McHugh Family for sponsoring first prize on this special day. We had a great turnout and the wet weather on Saturday did not spoil the great golf on Sunday with Clare O Halloran bringing in a tremendous score of 39 points.
