Clonmel Plumbing Christmas Hamper - who won it this year at Clonmel Golf Club?

Clonmel Golf Club

Christmas Hamper:
After almost two weeks of keen competition Dermot O’Callaghan led the field in the Clonmel Plumbing Christmas Hamper with an excellent 37 points for the 15 holes. Dermot’s score was just good enough to edge out Neal Butler on a countback. The best gross score was the 30 points from Billy Hewitt.
The other winners were Nigel Foran, Emmy Pyke, Brian Waters, Ollie Fitzpatrick, Conor Ryan, Johnny Quinn, Seamus Quigley, and Michael McSweeney.
Once again, this competition proved very popular and we thank all who made up the long list of entrants. Thank you to our sponsors.
Open V Par fourball
Last weekend’s v par fourball had a lively entry on Saturday when 30 pairings played. The scoring was good on Saturday, but the two winning pairs came from Sunday’s starters. An excellent card from brothers Conor and Paul Ryan with 9 up was good enough to win from Emmet Corcoran and Dessie Gunne whose 8 up beat a number of other cards on the same score.
Conor and Paul blitzed the opening 9 holes and were 8 up with three to play their 9th plus of the day came at the 11th as they rounded off a superb 12 holes. Having dropped a shot to par at the 6th Dessie and Emmet parred their way home in fine fashion to take second place.
There is an ongoing 12-hole open singles running on weekdays until Friday, December 10. This weekend we have an open two-man champagne scramble.
Marking of cards
Unfortunately, last weekend’s fourball saw a number of pairings disqualified as cards were incorrectly returned. When entering a competition, the printed label will not print a handicap. It is the responsibility of each player to ensure that the following are included when returning a card: Player’s name, course handicap, competition name, date, players signature and the name of the person who has verified the card (printed).
