The “Claret Jug” is the trophy presented to the winner of a major golf event “ The Open Championship”   This event was truly an equal major Open Competition event, as the journey to get there to achieving a Munster Championship Title was long and very competitive.  There is no doubt that this trophy will be an heirloom to all the team players and their famalies and accrediting them as “Competitive Golfers”.  The Club is very proud of their success and long may they all continue to be “Competitive Golfers”.  The Competition Secretary and team manager Liam Leahy was MC on the night and thanked all for their support during the campaign and a special thanks to the great numbers of Ladies who travelled to Woodenbridge for the final.  Club Captain Tommy Foley made the presentations and thanked all the players for a fantastic and proud display of “Competitive Golf” that will put Templemore Golf Club in recognition into the Golf Fraternity.   A great night continued with music by Tommy Foley and PJ Connolly and fantastic renditions by Club Members.  Complements to Mary Francis and her Staff in Tom Maher’s Pub for their support to the event and the provision of great food.  A wonderful and proud night.
