MEN’S NOTES
On a week when football thought it coming home before three-putting on the last, golf certainly came home in Clonmel.
The revival of "Open Week" by every yardstick was a huge success with a great mix of visitors and members!! All were complimentary of the challenges on the greens, the variation of the holes on the course and the competition formats.
Quite a few visitors over the week couldn't get over the value for money Clonmel Golf Club has to offer. I think the word is finally getting out about how good we have it at Lyreanearla.
Well done to the Captain, Billy Greene, on a great selection of competitions and to course chairman and staff for a challenging and exquisitely presented golf course.
‘The Week’ opened up with a well sponsored & supported Wynne & Associates Open Singles Followed by Wynne & associates Open Four-Ball. Thanks again to JP for two Great Competitions.
Then we had the novel Blue/Green singles presented by John Kennedy Motors which had 100 plus entries for a midweek competition and fabulous scoring to boot with John Perry coming out on top with a massive 45 pts followed by Mikey Power with another 45pts. Gross was picked up by Dermot Maher with 34 pts. In Fourth with the long-awaited charge of the young guns Michael Buckley with an eye watering 43pts. Visitors Prize going to PJ. Mooney 39pts.
