Congratulations to our fantastic Burren Foursomes team who won the final of the competition in Galway Bay Golf resort yesterday against a very strong Loughrea team. In perfect conditions, the girls produced their best in order to overcome Loughrea Golf Club. The matches were played out in front of a large following of enthusiastic supporters from both clubs.
With one match a piece, Bearna golf club were two up coming down the 17th in the final match and all that was required was a half to win overall. Clare Cunningham and Aileen Ludden held their nerve as Aileen putted out calmly to ‘close the deal’, as her club and team mates surrounding the green in a sea of purple sweaters, burst into rapturous applause. It had been ten years since Bearna last won the competition so the win was well overdue.
The strength of the Bearna members panel and the superb way it was managed by Team Captain Mary Griffin is to be commended. Winning the competition was the result of a huge amount of collective preparation, sacrifice and dedication.
Well done girls
