CUP and SHIELD FINALS
Following many weeks of exciting golf we have finally reached the finals and both the Cup and Shield will be played on Sunday next. In the Cup Tony Davern's team has stormed through the qualifying rounds and many members feel they will not be beaten. Golf has however many twists and turns and the team of Tom Weekes will not go down without a fight, The Shield has Danny Deady opposing Matthew Farrissey and with two very even teams it is too close to call.Best of luck to the four teams
