Golf Notes January 10
Co Tipperary Golf and Country Club are really looking forward to a great year of golf as our Captain’s prepare dates competitions for 2022, which will include competitions very kindly sponsored by our very generous sponsors of perpetual cups and many other very significant prizes all of which our club appreciate so much. Our major events such as Captain’s Day and President’s Day are the highlight of our year. It is the wish of every golfer to achieve the standard that bring them into contention to win the Captain’s or the President’s prize which are kindly sponsored by the incumbent at the time.
Breast Cancer Research
Lady Captain Niamh Chadwick along with the ladies club will also host Play in pink Day which is a great day in many clubs where vital fundraising for Breast Cancer Research takes place. In Dundrum golf club the Ladies Club supported by the Men’s club and the Juveniles pull out all the stops to make the day a fun day while raising the maximum amount of funds for Breast Cancer Research.
Our club was in the top ten at fundraising through Play in Pink day in 2021. We would like to acknowledge the very fine support we get from other clubs both local and far away.
South Tipperary Hospice
Captain Brian Slattery along with the Mens Club will again run a special fundraiser for South Tipperary Hospice, which is the Carroll Cup. This is one of our most prestigious competitions on our calendar, this together with the Tuesday Morning Ladies competition, help to raise funds for the very important Hospice Movement in South Tipperary which provides a very specialist palliative care service to many patients and their families in South Tipperary.
The club is very pleased to be associated with this wonderful movement.
A further highlight of last year was a special day organised at Halloween by the Ladies Club for Down Syndrome Tipperary, where we had so much fun with pumpkin carving, face painting, music and dance. A very special thank you to Jeff Leo proprietor of Dundrum House for sponsoring the event. This was a magical event for children and adults alike. We had photos of families with the amazing display of pumpkins in the bales of hay. This display was the incredible work of Winnie Ann and her family. We had the delicious finger food complaints of Jeff Leo. We had Face Painting by Michelle which went on throughout the day. All the proceeds went to Down Syndrome Tipperary. This is another event we will look forward to in 2022
