The Christmas Hampers were played on Saturday and Sunday

Two of golf’s most cherished traditions were exemplified during the
course of the competition on Sunday. The first is the well known
rule that each player is his own referee and Austin Kelly upheld
this to the letter by disqualifying himself when he realised, while
driving home, that he had signed for a wrong score at one hole.
Austin may have lost out on the Hamper, but reinforced the esteem in
which he and the game are held. The second tradition is the one
where a golfer buys a drink for everyone when s/he has had a
hole-in-one. Philip Devlin did the honours in the clubhouse when he
holed his tee shot at the 200 yard Dog Hill par three and received
the heartiest congratulations of everyone present.
Greencastle Golf Club’s AGM will be held on Saturday 8th December
and members are asked to send their email addresses to
