On Friday 4th October We had a SUPER, FANTASTIC, UNBELIEVABLE night of Lunar Golf in Forrest Little.
A huge thank you to Adrienne and the social committee and Sean in the office for arranging this night. Also, a huge thank you to our very generous sponsors, Paula Shearan, Maureen Hampson, Sue Somers, Maeve Brew, Joe Walsh of Hernon Crash Repairs, Beech Vista Garden Centre, Alan O’Connor of Aloco Kitchens, Anthony Gannon of Cardock Ltd, Vice Captain Mick Kearney and Pat Roddy of the Flower Factory. After a week of storm Lorenzo it was touch and go if the event was going ahead. Someone in the heavens was looking after us and on the Friday night we had a warm gentle dry night with ideal golf conditions. The music on the first tee was loud and got us all dancing before we set out. The course was lit up, all hazards with red lights, all greens with green lights and the fairways with blue lights. We all had on our head lamps and high viz jackets with a lot of the members dressing up with lights and glow bars. It was a shotgun start and we all teed off at 8pm. It was a 9 hole alternate scramble which crisscrossed over the 18 holes (1,3,16,17,11,8,9,10,18) lit up with white lights to keep us on the correct paths. The atmosphere was electric and our course could have been mistaken for the airport with all the lights and the beat of the music. We played golf to the beat of Queen plus many other songs played over the two hours. There was no shouts of fores and the sky was lit up with all our illuminated golf balls flying through the sky. After the golf we all headed into the club house for drinks and food from our bar and catering staff. The music was provided by Robbie Hennessy and he played until well after midnight. The array of prizes was a reflection of the very generous sponsorship that the social committee received. The overall winners were Martin Kelly, Steph. Coates, Flo Gaffney and Michael Donnelly. The ladies team winners were Maria Robinson, Maeve Duffy, Martine Denihan and Siobhan Garvey. Ladies runner ups were Lesley Molloy, Paula Shearan, Jacinta Hackett and Ruth McQuillan. The gents team winners were Allan Kiernan, Danny O’Neill, Ciaran Goodman and Stephen Duffy. The gents runner ups were Craig Drugan, Alex Ryan, Andy Crowe and Daniel Whelan.
The mixed team winners were Adrienne Timmons, Mick Timmons, Vice Captain Mick Kearney and Carmel Kearney. Susan Cullen, Tony Byrne, Pat Duggan and Lady Captain Imelda Dunne received a prize each for their creative lights and costumes.
Once again a huge thank you to Adrienne and our social committee for all their time and commitment to making this event so fantastic. Lady Captain Imelda was absolutely ecstatic and thrilled that this event occurred during her year.
