Another busy week at the club with the season in full swing.
Our Open Seniors on Mondays continues to attract great crowds and offers superb
value for visitors. Popular member Bob Frizelle took the honours last Monday. Our Fun Friday Foursomes continues to grow in
popularity and offers our newer members a fun introduction to our club. We were
delighted to welcome Fr. O’Neill’s Society on Saturday who braved the rain
showers but enjoyed their day at Dungarvan Golf Club. Again, we had a great
turnout for our Easter Scramble and another Scramble is planned for the May
Bank holiday. Our Adult Junior Foursomes proved to be a great success as always
and we thank our most generous sponsor Angela Murphy for making the event
On the provincial front our teams continue to excel. Our
Junior team led by Sean O’Sullivan were in action at Cahir last Saturday in the
Munster Interclub Championship. The team of AJ Hayes, Mattie Mullaney, Cal
Tutty and Rody Morrissey defied their tender years and produced a brilliant
performance to reach the Munster Finals. Not to be outdone, our Ladies
Intermediate team produced another inspired performance against near neighbours
Gold Coast. After a nerve wrecking win over Cahir, our girls got stuck in with
Bernie winning on 16 and Rachel and June winning on 14 offsetting Maura’s loss.
Well done to all concerned especially caddies and managers.
Our first Gents “Major” of the season took place on Sunday with James Hayes taking the honours with a brilliant 68. Our Course Committee set up a difficult test from the Championship tees and James proved to be a worthy winner.

up in great numbers to participate and “brave the elements”.
