Leopardstown Ladies heading to Final in Algarve
September 16, 2011

The next Irish leg of the Algarve Golf Trophy took place at Leopardstown Golf Centre - in association with the Lady Captain's day.  Stephanie Carney, captain for 2011, was well supported by her members with over 120 players taking part. 

Players were greeted on arrival by Stephanie herself and Louise Copping of Team Frith, representing Algarve Golf.  As well as refreshments for their round, players already received a gift from the Algarve Promotion Bureau.

Not only were players competing to win the fabulous Captain's Prize, but they were looking to book their place in the Algarve Golf Trophy Grand Final.

In difficult conditions, Mary Roche still managed to score a fantastic score of 45 points, beating next year's lady captain, Tina Harrington, by 1 point.  Third place went to Carol Doran with 40 points.  The best gross prize went to 2009 Algarve Golf Trophy finalist, Kay Kennedy.

Mary and Kay now qualify for the grand final of the Algarve Golf Trophy, which will be held in the stunning setting of the Algarve.  Competitors will enjoy three nights accommodation, two rounds of golf, welcome party and a prize presentation gala dinner in the stunning Algarve. 

The winners from the series of Algarve Golf Trophy events held in the UK and Ireland this year will be joined in Portugal by winners from the other Algarve Golf Trophy competitions, which are being held in Sweden and Denmark, creating a truly international final.
