Our Challenge Cup Team was very unlucky to lose out in the first round of the ILGU AIG Championships this weekend against a strong Adare Manor side but not without putting up a great fight.

An early win from Anne Quane and Aileen Beary secured the first  two points for Ballykisteen but that was to be the only wins, as we saw three of our ladies go out on the 16th, 18th and even down the 19th in the other matches.

This was a first matchplay competition for some of this team and they certainly did Ballykisteen GC proud. Team: Fiona Bourke, Aileen Beary, Mary Lynch-Kavanagh, Anne Quane, Barbara Leahy, Vivienne Dee and Claire Ryan, Manager LVC Catherine English and assistant manager LC Caroline Cussen.

The Ladies Club will be back out in force with three teams in Rd 2 of the Championships on Sunday 29th April; Minor (HC 22-17) V Kilkee in [email protected] 16.15; Intermediate (HC 16-21) V Nenagh in Ballyneety @ 15.30 and Juniors (HC 9-15) V Dromoland also in Ballyneety @ 14.00 so lots of action to look forward too.

Congrats to out Junior Girls Caitlin Shippam and Lauren Kelly who both got a late call-up last week, to play in the Irish Girls U18 Open Stroke Play Championships hosted in Roganstown GC (Swords) 13 – 15 April. While the girls did not make the cut for Day 2 they certainly played great golf in a field of super talent among the cream of young rising Irish golfers.

Local golf has been greatly hampered in Ballyk by the inclement weather but the sun is due to shine and we are hopeful to see more action at ‘home’ in the coming days and weeks.
