South Eastern Junior
Congratulations to our esteemed club member, Donncha Doyle - and an excellent golfer too - on being unanimously elected Captain of the South Eastern Junior Alliance for 2013/2014.
Donncha has been a most popular member of the Alliance for many years and his elevation to the highest position in the Alliance is a great honour for him and for his family.
His Captain’s Prize, the highlight of his year, will be played at Clonmel Golf Club next Spring.
We wish Donncha well in his year.
Course Closed – Next Inspection after the Wet Season
All competitions fell foul of the weather last week and although its only the first month of the playing season the fixtures list has already taken a beaten what with the Lemongrass Restaurant Finals having to be played over two weekends instead of one and this week the Superquinn sponsored Easter Hampers have had to be put back until Sunday April 14th. I’m sure other clubs around the country are meeting the same fate but it’s frustrating on players and competition management alike when things don’t go as planned. All we can do is hope that the weather improves – soon!
