Young golfers from all over Ireland took part on this prestigious competition. Winner was Eoin McGill, East Clare with a great score of 70 – one under par.


Ladies golf
A very successful golf marathon was held on 14 August to raise funds for Roscrea Golf Club.
A total of eleven players played three rounds of 18 holes and the ladies were well represented by Clodagh Jones who was playing off a handicap of three. The weather was beautiful and the day was thoroughly enjoyed by all. In these uncertain times it is great to have a boost to the club funds which will benefit our lovely course and facilities for members and visitors alike.


Lady Captain’s Prize
Sunday August 23 is the Lady Captain's Day, which we are looking forward to being a great success. The ladies will be out in force to honour the Lady Captain Deirdre McCarthy who has done a great job in these strange times. The draw for players will take place on Tuesday evening 18 August so make sure to put your name on the list in the locker room.
There will be an 18hole stroke competition with a 9hole play-off. There will also be a 9 hole qualifier stableford competition, plus a scramble competition for this year’s new lady members. A wonderful day of golf, inclusive of all lady members.
Those who can't play, please feel free to pop out to see our Lady Captain and have a nice cup of tea! A presentation of prizes on Sunday evening to round off a great day.
