Rockmount  Ladies win  Revive All Ireland Fourball Final

Having lost in the final of Revive Active in 2015, Rockmount were determined to bring the cup home this year. Saturday 1st October in wet cold conditions at Old Conna Golf Club, Bray the semi final match was against City of Derry. First match was won comfortably 4 and 3 by Jo Donaldson and Barbara Fleet with Ciara Agnew and Noreen Mikhael unfortunately losing the next match 3 and 2.

The other three matches were very tight throughout with  two Rockmount teams winning on the 18th green.  These pairings were Jan Lindsay with Frances Lawther and Janet Douds with Deidre Russell  and  final pairing of Maureen Entwistle and Oonagh Devine  were called in on the last hole,

Sunday, the sun shined  in Rockmount’s favour with Rockmount  getting  off to a hot start with their top pairing of Jo Donaldson and Barbara Fleet winning 6&5. Donaldson and Fleet were on fire after their win in the semi-final the day before. Newlands dominated the second match as they were one up through six, four up through 11 and three up through 15, closing out the match on the 16th green, with a 3&2 victory.

Rockmount added another killer blow after a 4&3 win from the fourth pairing of Jan Lindsay and Frances Lawther.  Newlands were one up and two up, in the third and fifth matches, respectively. The fifth pairing from Newlands held their lead and secured a 2&1 win.

With two points apiece, the decider came down to the middle match and Rockmount's Janet Douds and Deirdre Russell approached the 18th one down but won the hole to force Newlands down extra tie holes. The Rockmount pairing dug deep and secured victory in dramatic fashion on the 21st hole after  Deidre Russell  holed the winning putt. Rockmount are crowned 2016 Revive Active National Champions.
