Templemore Golf Club Seniors make a substantial donation to the club

Templemore Golf Club Seniors, presenting a substantial donation towards the recent purchase of essential new equipment by Chairman PJ Leahy and treasurer Philip Ryan to Club Captain Tony O'Toole

Seniors Donation
A special thanks to all the Templemore Golf Club Seniors for their substantial donation to the club towards the recent purchase of new equipment. The Seniors are an integral part of Templemore Golf Club. The Seniors were initiated by Philip Ryan in 2012 and supported by Pat Costello and Rody Cawley. The competition formula was mentored by Rody Cawley which is still in use and standing the test of time and contributes to a friendly inclusive game of golf. The social aspect, the banter, sharing of stories, presentation of prizes, the cup of tea and sandwich are all vital parts to a very enjoyable day of golf. The seniors are held every Thursday at 10am. For a 9 holes scramble which only cost €5 for the day plus an annual fee of €5. The seniors also arrange 4 or 5 outings a year to renowned 18h Golf Club at special affordable rates. All surplus funds are passed onto the club towards the development and maintenance of the course. Several contributions were made to the club since 2012. The seniors are very conscious of the gift of having such an open and friendly Golf Club that appreciates its senior members. New seniors over 55 are always welcome and especially from other clubs and freelance members. Current Committee are Chairman, PJ Leahy, Secretary, Pat O’Connell, Treasurer, Philip Ryan. Sean Lee, John Galvin, Rody Cawley, John Stapleton.
