Now par 70, the course is in excellent condition after the long lockdown thanks to head greenkeeper Paul Kenny.
Slievenamon Golf Club are proud to say that they have set up their very own Slievenamon Golf Club YouTube channel. They have posted only one video posted on it yet and shockingly it has not gone viral but just you wait.
On the video you will see what an amazing job their head greenkeeper Paul Kenny and his team have done on the course during lockdown and you can imagine the face Paul made when gents captain Sean Aylward suggested he might organise the Greenkeepers Revenge again this year.

Getting back into the swing of it
We knew everything was coming together once Ray Carthy corralled his Senior Golfers for their weekly Wednesday morning outing - any fears that members might be reluctant to take place in an organised (albeit socially distanced) friendly competition soon abated.
Our Gents and Ladies Clubs have also recommenced their club competitions.
Last weekend's results were as follows
Mens Weekemd Singles 15/16 May
Overall winner John O’Sullivan 45 pts (19) last 9 holes
Gross Paul Wynne 28pts (9)
2nd Brendan Alysbury 45 pts (19)
Ladies 18 hole Sunday/Tues 16/18 May
1 Geraldine Meagher (24) 34 pts
2 Anne Murphy (37) 33 pts
3 Josephine Murphy (29) 32 pts (count back last 6 holes)
Ladies 9 hole Sun/Tues 16/18 May
1 Kathleen Ryan (25) 13 pts count back last 6 holes
2 Ellen O’Connor (8) 13 pts.
Lady Captain at Slievenamon Golf Club this year, Teresa O'Brien.
The Captains are plotting and planning
Captain Seán Aylward and Lady Captain Teresa O’Brien are busy putting their heads together to agree dates for Open Competitions and Events from June 7. We are hoping we may be able to have the Drive In on June 7 and if that goes ahead, I’ll hopefully get some photos for you.
