Fifty-four ladies competed in a 4 Ball competition at Warrenpoint Golf Club on bank holiday Monday 27 th August. Warrenpoint which is also celebrating their one hundred and twenty-five-year anniversary proved the perfect venue for a ladies' outing offering challenging golf within a short journey from home and excellent catering with coffee and scones upon arrival and a beautiful two course dinner to finish the day.
The course was in beautiful condition, but it required skill and patience to achieve the top prizes. Lady Captain Elizabeth Mawhinney thanked everyone for participating in the outing and paid thanks to the Club Manager Mr Paul Revey who had been so helpful in arranging the outing. She also thanked Karen Edgar for doing the cards and the treasurer Jacqueline Kelly for helping to organise the outing.
