We wish to extend our sincere sympathies to Creina O’Sullivan on the recent death of her sister Mary Williams and our sincere sympathies to Tom Conway on the death of his father Joe Conway Snr.

In other new we had another hectic week at the club as the weather continues to improve. Our Monday Seniors continues to be popular. Michael Power from Cahir took the honours and Liam Carroll will accompany our Pro to Seapoint as the leading qualifier for the Staysure Seniors. The honours over the weekend went to a mixture of youth and experience. Sarah Moynihan defied her tender years and shot a brilliant 41 points to take the Ladies competition, while Paul Power and Richard Mahony won the Minor and Intermediate Scratch Cups respectively.

Our Bank Holiday Scramble attracted a great crowd as usual and it was wonderful to see a mix of youth and experience on the course. On the domestic front, our Junior Foursomes team lost the Area final against Faithlegg. In truth, we didn’t play well but we wish our victors every success in the Munster finals.

Titleist & Scottie Cameron are coming to town next Friday 10th May from 12 to 4pm. If you wish to avail of this opportunity, contact the Pro-Shop for a free appointment. The Titleist technician will endeavour to fit you with the perfect wedges and appropriate putter.
