General comments, points of interest: Last year’s long hot summer tool its toll on very many Irish courses and Rosslare was no exception. However, despite this the course had recovered incredibly well from a very low position and a huge credit must go the the ground staff. The greens were also their best condition for many years. Rosslare’s hospitality was excellent as usual. UCDGC’s team had many new faces and obviously came with the intent to finally regain possession of The Cleek. Their Captain did question the reasoning for this format as against straight match play. A topic for discussion.
