TEAMS
We are now back to that time of year and our teams will be taking to the fairways this April, starting out with the Minor Cup Team, unfortunately Thurles had to give a walk over to Clonmel on Saturday last. The following day, Sunday, our Challenge Cup Team (28+ handicap) headed to Tipperary Town to play Tipperary but unfortunately Tipperary came out on top. Well done to all selectors, players, subs and caddies for the effort they put in. This leaves our Intermediate Cup Team (16 – 21 handicap) who have got a home venue and will play Harbour Point in Thurles on April 13th at 2pm. All support is very much appreciated for this team.
