Foxrock Golf Club hosted the Regent Golf Outing on Friday 5th October; an equal mix of Regent and Regent Academy members turned out for the event, which was followed by dinner in the clubhouse gallery. The format was “Team of Four” (just like in bridge, teams is the most fun!); in a tightly fought finish, the last team on the course (Carmel Dowdall, Kieran Crowley, Giles Murnin and Peter Lynch) came home in the gathering twilight gloom with a score of 75 to win by a single point from Margaret Heneghan, Teresa Murphy, John Corcoran and David Ryan. The splendid trophy, which was last competed for in 2002, was presented to the winning team by Grace Finegan on behalf of the previous organisers. Special mention also of Susan Lennox’s solo 5-pointer on the tenth hole – a spectacular individual contribution.
The Graham Cup was won by Eamon Keogh and BJ (Best Men's Pair). Best Ladies Pair was Margo English and Miriam McConville. Prizes were presented by Ann Tuite, Club President.
The annual Noreen O'Grady Pairs competition was won by Elizabeth Will & Terry Walsh. All pairs in this competition are made up of one member from the Regent and one member from the Regent Academy. Well done to both. Pictured above with Ann Tuite, President.

The Regent Bridge Club was founded in 1925, seven years before the Contract Bridge Association of Ireland (CBAI) was formed in 1932.
The Regent has been synonymous with the promotion of top level bridge in Ireland and attracts a high standard of player. Our members play every Wednesday evening and we organise leagues for teams of four on Monday evenings.
We are located at 25 Waterloo Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4, close to the city centre. The club offers five luxurious card playing rooms and a private bar for members and their guests.
The Regent Academy was established in 2008 to meet the growing demand for bridge lessons and provide a first class playing facility for beginners to intermediate bridge players. Bridge classes usually run from September to December and January to March each year.
The Regent Academy is part of the Regent Bridge Club and is affiliated to the CBAI. Learners have the opportunity of applying for Academy membership at the completion of classes. The club is particularly suited for players who wish to improve their standard of play and advance to higher grades
The Academy has competitions each Thursday at 7.30pm. Visitors cannot play at the Academy during the bridge season from September to May inclusive but are welcome during the summer months of June-August.
Membership of the Regent Academy is in the first instance reserved to those who have taken classes at the club and is full at present. The waiting list for membership is reviewed after the annual deadline for membership renewals in November.
