Curtis Cup 2016, Green Lamb... and slow play penalties

It’s the final day of the 2016 Curtis Cup, when the Americans will be looking to overcome an 8-4 deficit against the GB & Ireland team at Dun Laoghaire Golf Club. A penalty for slow play was a kick in th eteeth for the Americans, but there have been complaints of slow play on both days. It was actually highly satisfying to see a penalty being implemented… whichever team it was applied to! 

There are enough young fans at the event who need to see that slow play is not tolerated. Now, if only the golfing bodies had the balls to do that on the major tours.

‘Looking good girls!
But this is not a blog about negative things – rather it is a good news story for Irish golf and sportswear brand Green Lamb which is the official clothing supplier to the 2016 GB & Ireland Team.

Cork-based Green Lamb has provided the eight strong team with their entire clothing needs for both the practice days and match days. Green Lamb is known for its fashion forward take on women’s golf clothing and marketing director Peter Dwyer says they are very proud to dress the team.

For a long time now we have been associated with the Curtis Cup and Ladies Golf Union, but 2016 sees the matches being played on Green Lamb’s home turf, in Ireland, and for that we’re extra proud to dress the girls. It’s an honour for us and we wish both teams very well for the weekend. Here’s hoping for a home victory!

The event showcases the very best eight female amateurs from USA vs. Great Britain & Ireland.  This is only the second time the event has been held in Ireland: in 1996, Great Britain & Ireland posted an  11½-6½ win at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club.

Green Lamb brand ambassador and supermodel Jodie Kidd has been keen to show her support for the team, commenting recently on the team’s practise day clothing, she remarked: ‘Looking good girls!’

You can still get along to Dun Laoghaire Golf Club, outside Enniskerry, today to see the final matches (tee times between 10am and 11.10am). Tickets are available at the gate.
