Seabreeze Bar & Restaurant Winter League.
Sunday Feb 27th saw the last round of sectional matches for this season’s winter league. There was plenty to play for and relief and grief were found in equal measure on a fine but blustery day. First up, heartiest congratulations to the the following ten pairings who have reached the final as winners of their respective sections, Maxwell/Muir, Leonard/Kerins, Rooney/Rooney, Probst/Cadden, Walsh/Filan, Leggett/Durkin, Keane/Kivlehan, Nicholson/O’Rourke, Glynn/White and Cox/Heffernan.

Next Sunday the play-offs will take place to determine the last ten pairings for the final. The top ten scores on the day, v par, will advance. The following pairings, made up of the ‘almost made its’, ‘the very unlucky’ and ‘the downright blessed’ will scrap it out, Kennedy/Kelly, Carroll/Roussilhe, Harte/McGuirk, McCann/Henry, Howley/Fox, Martin/McMorrow, Basquille/Basquille, Garrett/Gillen, Kivlehan/Watters, Lee/Derrig, Murphy/Campion, Dolan/Buckley, Kilbride/Kilbride, Timbs/Moriarty, Osborne/Doyle, O’Hara/McCullagh, Tivnan/Fox, Meehan/O’Donnell, Glynn/Glynn, Borthwick/Borthwick, McTernan/Hannon, Phelan/Phelan, Gallagher/Gallagher, Gray/Keaney, Mullane/McGarrigle, McGrath/Farrell, Hickey/Feeney, Cunningham/Gallagher, Culkin/Conlon and Fitzpatrick/Harte.
The play-off competition tees off at 10.30 next Sunday morning with the timesheet running through to just short of 1.00 pm. Details are available in the clubhouse/shop. We remind all competitors that notice of non-participation is essential for the integrity of the competition.
The draw for the final proper will take place in the clubhouse next Sunday as soon as practicable after the ten play-off qualifiers become known. Good luck to all!

Seabreeze Bar and Restaurant Winter League
Round 8 was completed in difficult windy conditions on Sunday and the excitement continues to build before next week’s final round with the play-offs and final to follow. We would like to draw all competitors’ attentions to the following important points. As usual scores attained on the final Sunday will be used in the event of ties to determine final section placings. It is important that scorecards are returned by all pairings who find themselves in such a position. The top three in each section will qualify automatically for the final with the next three pairings in each section, (a total of thirty) qualifying for the 18 hole play-off on March 6th. The top ten in the play-off will join the thirty automatically qualified pairings in the final. The draw for the play-off will take place in the clubhouse next Sunday as soon as practicable after the day’s scores come in. It is very important that any pairing who for any reason cannot turn up for the play-off to notify the competitions committee so that opposites or markers can be arranged.
The following pairings are now safely qualified for the final.
Maxwell/Muir, Leonard/Kerins, Gannon/Cunningham, Watters/Lindsay, Leggett/Durkin, Keane/Kivlehan, Glynn/White, Wehrly/Fox, Cox/Heffernan and Fox/Fox. A good number of pairings are at this stage guaranteed at least a play-off spot but the possibilities and permutations are beyond the scope of this report. Up to date standings in all sections are posted on the club website www.strandhillgolfclub.com for those who wish to ‘crunch the numbers’!
