Templemore Captains Drive-in
On a glorious and perfect day with the course in an excellent condition on Sunday, March 6, the golf season became active in Templemore.

2021 Captain Dinny Maher presented the traditional Golf Ball to incoming Captain Jim Ryan. The attendance was in abundance as all were delighted to get back into their golf after long inclement weather delays resulting in course closures.

Captain Jim thanked all those who attended, also best wishes to the incoming President Michael Purcell, Lady Captain Mary Hogan and Lady President Mary Butler. Captain Jim made a presentation in appreciation to Greenkeeper Jack Alaxendra for his dedicated work on the greens and the Golf course in general. Lady Captain Mary also made a presentation on behalf of the Ladies to Jack, both wishing him well in his retirement and looking forward to seeing him playing the great game of golf. Fr Dominic gave all his blessing and wishes to a happy year of golf. The Ladies organised a hospitality reception in the Club House Lounge which was greatly appreciated by all as this was the first in two years due to Covid-19.
