About Mahon Golf
Welcome to Mahon Golf Club, officially opened on the 3rd September 1980 and is called the Ted McCarthy Municipal Golf Course. The course as it is now constituted proves a very challenging test to all Golfers.
We have now started a new facebook page. Find us on www.facebook.com/mahongolfclub and like us please.

Mahons' Fred Daly Team reach Munster Final. Last Saturday our Fred Daly youngsters had a great win over West Waterford in Youghal. Playing in very tough conditions they played very well to run our 3.5 to 1.5 winners.
This sets us up perfectly to play against Lahinch in Balltneety (Limerick) on the 18th of September. Ian and his charges will be practicing on the course beforehand to give us every chance to come out on top on the finasl day against a strong Lahinch team who also reached this stage of the competition last year on the same course.
Put the date in your diaries if you feel like supporting on the day. Tee off at 11am.

Miracles in Mahon
Liam P O Sullivan (President) destroys the field on his way to a superb win on Saturdays Scramble, his first in 22 years. Helped in a small way by Dessie and the brother-in-law George, Liam found himself in places that he hadn't seen in ages, (Fairways and Greens). Well done Liam there's hope for us all.
On the same day we had the Longest Drive that never was. An early strike by Sean Deasy resulted in no additional names going on the sheet after 8.30am. Unfortunately Sean hadn't entered the competition and couldn't count, blaming dad for being too tight to pay the entry fee.

Mixed Foursomes Team Loose in Munster Semi-Final
There was an invasion of red in the Gold Coast last Saturday to see our Mixed Foursomes Team take on Tramore in the Munster Semi-final. Unfortunately we didn't get the result that we wanted as we were beaten by a better team on the day and eventually we got the meal instead of the soup early.
This was a new experience for the club and will stand us in good stead as we make in-roads into provincial and national competitions where we will feature more and more over the coming years.
A few people (male and female) were seen leaving the Blackrock Inn very late on Saturday night, with sorrows well drowned.
Well done to all concerned and to all who went to the trouble to travel and support the team on Saturday

Mahon GC Mixed Foursomes Cork Area Champions
- Monday 20th June
Mixed Foursomes Weekend Winners: It was a long and draining weekend for Mahon and we wish we had them every week. Our mixed Foursomes team came out on top after three impressive wins over a few little known clubs, Monkstown, Cork GC and Douglas.
Message from Captain Seamus & President Liam
We're hoping that 2016 will see Mahon GC continue to flourish and progress as a club, in which we all have enormous pride and hard-earned golfing ambitions.
We hope to build on the successes of 2015 & we look forward to the journey that is ahead in 2016.
Most of all we can all be part of that journey together. That's what is special about Mahon.
Best wishes to all our Members and every success to our Club Teams for the year ahead.
