Pat Smyth Memorial Golf Tournament

On Friday June 15, there will be a golf tournament held at Van Cortland to honor the late Pat Smyth, an almost 50 year Woodlawn member and native of Co. Kildare. There will be more details to follow.

Pat’s family have donated a very nice collection of prizes for the event and it is my understanding that the Co.Kildare Association is handling the details. Lunch, dinner and open bar in addition to the aforementioned prizes.
It would be nice if a few four-balls of Pat’s old Woodlawn mates could make it to the event. At this point, you can contact me and I will have more details early next week….
   Meanwhile , please sign up for Sunday June 3, 7:04 AM at Split Rock by next Wednesday….Jim

May 20 Results

We had a nice turnout Sunday for the always popular tournament that combines individual stroke-play and Partners best-ball

The qualifying teams for the Partners ( and their Sunday score) and the match-ups in the Partners are as follows:

2nd Place:   Kieran O’Sullivan and Kieran Brosnan   64 net b-b      versus    3rd Place:    Mark Verrastro and Darren  Talbot  6 net b-b
We would ask the semi-finalists to play their match by the end of June , with the Final to be played by end of July.
In the individual net, Jim Murphy edged Kieran O’Sullivan ( both 70 net) on a match of cards, with the final tie-breaker being last 3 holes, net 12 strokes to net 13 strokes
Low Gross: Dean Marraccini  78   ( but steaming after a lost-ball 8 on 18)
CTP:   7th   Frank Finnegan   10th   John O’Shea    12th   Joe Firth
Next event:  Sunday June 3, Split Rock . Please note first tee-time is 7:04 …..qualifying for CC and B is complete, and first round handicap matches must be played by the close of business on June 3. Handicap Chair Stephen Carey will complete the brackets shortly. Please check Woodlawngolfclub.com for updates.
I need confirmation of your attendance by the morning of Thursday, May 31 as Split Rock wants names and numbers these days by Thursday noon.
Thanks and have a good week!


All the draws have been made and are on the Champions Page of the web site. If we can make a push to get some of the Handicap matches played in June it will lighten the schedule for the Summer and Fall.
