East Cork won the Eileen Murphy Memorial foursomes at Cork Golf Club yesterday after a great score of 39 points saw them finish two ahead of the field. A full timesheet saw 40 clubs from all over Munster take part in the event.
East Cork’s Fran Fitzpatrick and Deirdre O’Mahony had the best score on a day when the course at Cork was in great condition. The regional final of the Revive Active Fourball takes place in Castletroy today. Unfortunately there are no Cork clubs involved, Fota Island lost out at the semi-final stage, having beaten Macroom in the quarter final. Today’s final will see Thurles take on Cahir Park.
