Berties Golf Society had its first outing of the year with the always popular Bertie Dempsey Memorial Cup in Youghal last Saturday, 19 February. Big numbers were expected and we were not disappointed, with 68 players teeing off on the day.
Dave Browne was the winner beating Colin Heaphy into 2nd place on the back 9. Well done Dave.
Captain Pad Joe Terry and Vice Captain Michael O’Sullivan presented the prizes later that evening in Berties. Awards for GUI and non-GUI Players of the Year went to Paddy Heaphy and Alan Downing respectively, with both these prizes kindly sponsored by Paul Dempsey. Fine speeches were made by Paul Dempsey and, representing Youghal Golf Club, Patsy Regan.
The Society would like to take this opportunity to thank Youghal Golf Club for looking after us so well on the day. The food and service at the club is top notch!
Well done to everyone who played on the day. The Society is growing in number year after year and has its strongest turn out at this event, a fitting tribute to the man himself, Bertie Dempsey, a great supporter of all sports in our town always.
Our next outing is to Mahon in April and we will be hoping to get a few more to travel on the bus as it is guaranteed to be back in Berties by 9 o’clock sharp! Lastly, a big welcome to all our new members. We hope you all enjoy the year of golf and craic ahead.
