Westmeath County Board

Winter Alliance

Winter Alliance.

It is that time of year again when the clubs get dusted off and we all hit the greens again. 25 teams turned up to play in the first winter alliance of the year at Collinstown and everyone was eager to get off to a winning start for 2013. There was a great buzz around the course as pitch and putt friends met up for the New Year and scoring was of the highest standard as ever. Gross winners on the day were the team of Rene Bloem (Collinstown), Niall Corcoran (Lough Owel) and Sean Dinnegan (Lough Owel). After a very impressive 40 in their first round they added an outstanding round of 17 under par 37 in the second, which included an ace from Sean on the second for a total score of 77gross. The Net winners were the Collinstown team of Stuart Tarleton, M Scally and Clive Byrne. After a fantastic pitch landed on the 36th green the lads knew they were going well and had a chance of victory and took this with an excellent score of 65net. Spot Prizes on the day were won by Stephen Bray Lough Owel and Aaron Archbold Lough Owel. Westmeath County Board would like the Collinstown club for having the course as always in great condition on the day and all the players who travelled to play and support the alliance, looking for to seeing another strong field in two weeks time at Lough Owel.
