Power looking forward to Lee Valley Scratch Cup

Lee Valley Senior Scratch Cup Launch 8th Mar 2017_3.1Not everyone qualifies to take part in a senior scratch cup, but this weekend Lee Valley Captain Pat Power will have the pleasure of doing so, with an outside chance that he might actually win the event.  In previous years the one handicapper just had to turn up and play but this year as Captain he has been central to the staging of the event.  After weeks of preparation the Captain is looking forward to being one of the 81 golfers who will tee it up tomorrow morning in the first round of the 54 hole WAGR event, and for Captain Power the preparation is now paying off.  “Everyone in Lee Valley is very excited to get the 2017 Dell EMC Senior Scratch Cup underway this weekend” said the Captain.  “Preparation has gone well with the course looking spectacular.  The greens have very much improved and should prove a good test for all this weekend.  As always we have a very strong field with the best of local talent teeing it up.  I myself am looking forward to participating and hopefully the Lee Valley lads will put up a good showing.  A big thank you to all who have done huge work to put the event together, lead by Vincent Drinan our tournament director and the course staff lead by our head green keeper James Mulcahy.”

This time last year the tournament was thrown into doubt due to heavy midweek rain.  this year however the benign weather has assisted the course preparation and under the watchful eye of Jerry Keohane the legendary Lee Valley greens will be rolling well.  The forecast for the weekend is good too so the Captain has one final comment: “The weather looks favourable so why not come out to watch some good golf over the weekend.”
