CASTLEBAR GOLF CLUB - BEST PRESENTED COURSE 2010
Welcome to the website of Castlebar Golf Club, voted “Best Presented Course Connaught 2010”
The 2012 Phyxer Captain is Liam Burke and he has a full calendar of events planned for the year, culminating in his Phyxer Captain's Prize on 17th August.
The Phyxers singles Matchplay competition is over 18 holes. The draw combinations are on the notice board in the foyer of the Club house. Full handicaps apply i.e. if 18 plays 24, then the 18 handicap gives the 24 handicap a shot at index 1 to 6. If a golfer drops out of Phyxers (<18) he is no longer eligible to compete in the Monday competition or Matchplay.
The Phyxers are back in action on the fairways for 2012. As many members say, if the Phyxers are back the Summer is not far behind.
Into August and the summer is here and Phyxers are out in force to avail of the Phyxers competition (generously sponsored by John Gibbons), and the club open. Amazingly another new winner tonight with Dermot Reilly taking the spoils with a fabulous 33 points after a point deduction for an earlier frame position. This score was exceptional over 14 holes where the pin placings were set to challenge the ladies in a Connaught competition. John Mitchell was in second place on 29 points beating Matt Flynn on a count back. All Phyxers are encouraged to seek a time that suits them for the Phyxers Captains Day on Friday 17 August. The spread of winners means the Phyxer of the Year is still up for grabs. Next Monday is the final chance to to get into that winning position but at this stage it looks like it will be decided on the Final day on Friday. Good luck to all contenders
25 Phyxers turned out despite the wind and rain last Monday for the Stauntons sponsored 14 hole competition. The winner was Pat Healy . Ian Smyth was second and Tom Cresham was third. Nearest the pin went to Keith Finnan….a defiant response from the Kilkenny man to Galway’s shock win on Sunday.
The Phyxer Match Play is at Semi final stage. Winner of Matt Flynn/ Tom Martyn play Pat Healy and in second semi final Tom Walsh plays Dermot Reilly
Next Monday is Open Week and all Phyxers are asked to support the Club by playing as often as possible during the week.
