RELATED PHOTOS LONDON – Rugby World Cup 2019 will kick off in Tokyo on Sept. 20 and reach its conclusion in Yokohama on Nov. 2, it was announced Tuesday in London.With just two games remaining in the 2015 tournament, attention is now turning to the next tournament, the first to be held in a Tier 2 rugby nation. Tokyo, rugby, Yokohama, Rugby World Cup, 2019 Rugby World Cup “We have been working together for a few years and we have finally arrived at the start of the journey,” said Head of Rugby World Cup Alan Gilpin.“I have every confidence that not only as a result of our partnership with (local organizing committee) Japan 2019 but also the work done by the 12 host cities and prefectures that 2019 will be a celebration of rugby in the whole country.”In addition to announcing the start and finish dates of the tournament, the logo for the competition was also unveiled.Drawing heavily on Japan as the Land of the Rising Sun and incorporating the iconic image of Mount Fuji, the logo “symbolizes how the tournament will bring the people of Japan and rugby fans around the world together in a spirit of solidarity and friendly sporting rivalry,” said Gilpin.Japan Rugby 2019 Chief Executive Akira Shimazu said he was “struck at how impressive and dynamic the logo is,” and he added he and his committee have learned a lot from the ongoing tournament.World Rugby CEO Brett Gosper said he “couldn’t be more pleased with how successful England 2015 has been. We always talked about how 2015 would be record breaking in terms of commercial activities, fan engagement and spectator numbers, and it certainly has been.”“Rugby World Cup 2019 will see records in some areas but it will be groundbreaking. It will look very different, feel very different and sound very different to any Rugby World Cup we have ever had.”While all the games will be played in Japan — with the full schedule hopefully worked out next year — Japan Rugby Football Union Chairman Noriyuki Sakamoto said it was still very much an Asian tournament.“Asia has always been a key word and we are working with our friends in Asia to make sure we have a hugely successful tournament and that we leave behind a lasting legacy not just for Asia but the whole world.”Gosper said that World Rugby were already in discussions with two major Chinese corporations as a direct result of the tournament being held in Japan.“It’s clear that having the Rugby World Cup in Japan will raise interest in rugby in China and other countries,” he said.

IPGC Members Green Valley monthly reportSunday, Nov. 7 – Stableford1st Rod Howett 40pts 2nd Joe McArdle 40pts3rd Jack Behan 39pts4th Kevin Hamilton 38ptsThe change in the weather has dried the course and provided good playing conditions with lots of run on the ball. Rod Howett, an IPGC stalwart and native Londoner enjoyed the improved conditions to record a sparkling score and inch ahead of Joe McArdle to take the honours. Rod is clearly taking full advantage of the lessons he has been receiving from Al Keith.Jack Behan put in a credible display to take third place, joining Joe in representing Irish hopes. Kevin Hamilton fought hard for England with a sound 38 points. There were no ‘2’s today.Sunday, Nov. 14 – Stableford1st Joe Peters 43 Pts2nd Charlie Lapsey 39 Pts3rd Ted Lodge 38 Pts4th Roar Berger 37 PtsAnother busy day with good playing conditions saw the Irish come to the fore. Joe Peters, a regular IPGC Sunday man, took the honours for Dublin with a scintillating 43 points. Charlie Lapsey from Donegal played very well off his 8 handicap to take second place. Ted Lodge, an ex Captain from Rush a quaint Dublin links course, was close behind. Ted, who plays steadily of his 11 handicap, is never far off the pace.Roar Berger from Norway took fourth place, the only non Irishman to get a mention today.‘2’ were achieved by Joe Peters, Ted Lodge, Alec Hoare, and Paul Egan.Sunday, Nov 21 – Stableford1st Charles Sheppard 40pts2nd Andy Galvin 35pts3rd Joe McArdle 32pts4th Frank McGowan 31ptsThe evergreen Charles Sheppard came out to play today, winning with several lengths to spare. The Irish stable of Andy Galvin, Joe McArdle, and Frank McGowan ran credible races but were unable to peg back Charles who had the race at his mercy with several holes to play.Joe McArdle had the only ‘2’ today.Sunday, Nov. 26 – StablefordGreen Valley1st Yasuo Suzuki 41pts2nd Ted Lodge 40pts3rd Brian Talbot 37ptsSilky Oak1st Russell Exley 39pts2nd Barry Wellings 38ptsCharlie Lapsey 37pts CB 21A busy course and large turnout saw two competitions today, one on Green Valley and one on the new Silky Oak. The later received good reviews and was much enjoyed.On Green Valley Yasuo Suzuki, a regular IPGC man from Japan, scored his best ever round on the course to narrowly defeat the consistent Ted Lodge. Brian Talbot took the minor honour.Silky Oak brought out the best from our organizer Russell Exley who recorded a tight win over Barry Wellings. Charlie Lapsey, clearly a cad, beat charming Irish lady Teresa Connelly on count-back for third place.‘2’s today were achieved by Russell Exley, Brian Talbot, and twice by Yasuo Suzuki.Presentations, as always, were conducted at the Golf Centre Bar on the course with amiable hosts John and Geoff, assisted by their lovely staff, taking excellent care of the golfers.Note: If you would like to play with the IPGC members at Green Valley on a Sunday, you can contact mobile 084 782 4582. All transportation to the course is arranged from The Haven leaving at 09.00 and you need to sign up prior to the day.
There were two 2s, coming from Duncan McLean with about a 2ft putt, and John Nicholas. Wednesday, Jan. 11, Green Valley – 2 Person ScrambleWe take every opportunity to blame global warming for any unusual event on our planet but who would have thought that we would have 24 hours of rain in January in Pattaya? As a result it might have been a good idea to have wellington boots instead of golf shoes for we were welcomed at the course by heavy rain. This quickly disappeared but made an unwelcome return half way round encouraging us to take shelter for 40 minutes and, when we ventured forth, you soon discovered if your shoes were waterproof and some difficulty finding areas that were not under water.Murray Hart was due to return to Australia on Jan 13 and to say a fond farewell to the Billabong he agreed with Capt. Bob to have a 2-person scramble and he would generously donate some prizes. It was a welcome change to the usual stableford format and was well supported by the Billabong regulars.With the heavy rain interrupting proceedings, the scores could have been better but Joseph Schuler and Miss Poopay left everyone in their wake with a net score of 61.8, which included 5 birdies on the front nine and a score of 66 with a 4.3 handicap. In second place was Freddie Starbeck and John Nichols with 64.8, third place went to the Ritchie family, Greig and Gary with 66.4, just ahead of Tony Oakes and George Barrie with 67.4.The ladies had their own competition with Miss Tan taking no prisoners with 42 points, well ahead of Miss Pin occupying second place with 36 points but requiring a count-back to push Miss Nu into third place.There was only one ‘2’ which went to Miss Yen. Friday, Jan. 13, Crystal Bay – StablefordCrystal Bay was the venue for this day out, and considering the amount of rain during the week, the course was in surprisingly good condition. There were some soft spots here and there but nothing to get upset about and the course was packed full so a long day was in store.With 7 groups playing we started a little early and thanks must go to the efficient staff members who look after the golfers. One member of our group, George Barrie, almost got the hole in one still missing from his list of golfing achievements, his effort here stopping just 6 inches short of the cup.The scores were not too bad with nobody breaking their handicap. There was a count back for third place between Geoff Parker, Dave Bramley and George Barrie with Geoff being the one left out, George taking fourth and Dave the bronze, all with 35 points. There was also a count back between Miss Tewin and Alistair Gall for the top two spots, Alistair being edged out by Tewin after they were tied on 36 points each.There were three ‘2’s, coming from George, Dave Bramley and Andrew Woodall. Golf from The Billabong BarMonday, Jan. 9, Phoenix – StablefordSlightly wet underfoot at Phoenix today and highly unusual for this time of the year to be getting rained on, but the last of the Billabong group just made it before the rain belted down. The scores were very good due to the soft conditions – you could really have a go at the flags. Playing Lake and Ocean it was no carts on the fairways so a little bit of walking was required, but it turned out to be a snappy round with no holdups at all.Capt Bob, Dave Bramley and John Anderson.It was a surprise to come round to the 4th tee to see a driver floating in the lake alongside the tee box. It turned out it wasn’t thrown in anger but was a practice swing from Freddy and it slipped out of his hand. A couple of minutes later a little lady staff member swam out and returned the runaway club to its owner.Anything under 40 points didn’t get a mention today, with Capt Bob scoring 40 points to take third place, John Anderson, playing his best round of golf for some time in second with 42, Dave Bramley filling top spot with 43 even after he blobbed the last two holes.Miss Poopay (left) with Joseph Schuler.
The Golfing Union of Ireland is endorsing the exciting new tee time booking management system developed by BookGolf365 Limited.The Golfing Union of Ireland today announced its exclusive endorsement of a new innovative tee time booking management system for golf clubs developed by BookGolf365, which will be branded Golfnet in Ireland. Inspired by the ideas of company founder and European Tour winner Peter Lawrie, the system has been designed by golf industry professionals to best serve golfers, their Clubs and golf in Ireland.In reaching its decision Pat Finn, CEO of the GUI said: “The Golfing Union of Ireland recognised that action was needed to provide an alternative to the existing barter system and develop an alternative tee time booking management system. Working with BookGolf365 has enabled us to offer something that’s very valuable for our clubs. Tee time booking software is now an essential part of the day-to-day running of every club. BookGolf365 is an excellent product. It is sophisticated and yet simple to use. We would encourage all member Clubs to investigate this new software”The Union entered discussions with BookGolf365 in 2016 amid concerns among member clubs about bartering green fees in return for tee time booking software. By addressing this issue the software will be mutually beneficial to clubs, golfers and the game of golf itself.The arrival of BookGolf365 into the market now provides clubs with a clear alternative to the barter model of trading rounds (green fees) in return for use of tee time booking software. Working in consultation with the GUI and its member clubs, BookGolf365 has developed a product that meets the demands of all stakeholders in golf, allows Clubs to maximise their green fee revenue and take back control of their green fee pricing.Key features of BookGolf365 include:Enhanced back office reports for Club Managers and officialsEasy to use booking process for MembersFree Mobile Apps for IOS and Android Smart PhonesFree Push Messaging and Email ServiceNo More Barter roundsDynamic Pricing moduleData Analytics powered by IBM Watson TechnologyPeter Lawrie said: “I am delighted that the GUI has given such a strong endorsement to BookGolf365. The team at BookGolf365 have already enabled a number of Clubs to “go live” with our software and are looking forward to working closely with more golf clubs in Ireland. The feedback from our existing customers has been very encouraging and we are excited to be in a position to support and give back to Irish golf.”If your club would like to find out more about the BookGolf365 tee time booking engine, log on to BookGolf365.ie, email at [email protected] or call on 01 9685685.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email
