Congratulations to our Senior Cup team who had an excellent win on Saturday morning against a strongly-fancied Ardee team in the Leinster Quarter Finals winning 3-2 in a thrilling finish with Conor Sutton coming out on top in the deciding match on 22nd hole. Unfortunately we were beaten in the Semi Final in the afternoon by The Castle Golf Club who went on to defeat Portmarnock in the final on Sunday. Well done to Darragh Smith and his team on a great performance and one that proves that we are very capable of competing at the highest level.
Malahide's Senior Cup team contest the Leinster Quarter Final against Ardee Golf Club in Hermitage on Saturday morning, 18th August 2012, at 8.40am. If successful, they will go forward to the Semi-Final in the afternoon and hopefully to the Final on Sunday. We would like to wish the team every success and ask as many members as possible to make the short trip down the M50 to offer their support to our top golfers.

It was a case of Snap for Gavin O'Connor and Ciaran Reale who won the Senior and Junior Scratch Cups last weekend in Skerries matching the achievement of Gavin and Aidan Carleton in Beaverstown just a couple of short months ago. Both won their respective events by a single shot in similar circumstances finishing in superb style with a series of birdies when it appeared that their chances had gone. Many congratulations to Gavin and Ciaran on their great achievements.
