The competition was won by Mulranny Golf Course with 83 pts. The same result as the winning team in Dundrum so it could have been possible for Templemore to succeed.  However, it was a great experience for the team to play on the Ryder Cup Course, which must have been a special privileged feeling, when teeing off where all the greats of Golf stood.  Well done to the team in representing Templemore Golf Club in the K Club.

Golf Ireland;  “Clubs in Golf Ireland”  – All clubs currently affiliated to the GUI and ILGU will automatically be affiliated to Golf Ireland on its establishment. Each club will affiliate as one entity to Golf Ireland and clubs will be members of the company. Golf Ireland will provide support and guidance to clubs on how to manage the process of change from ILGU/GUI affiliation to Golf Ireland. – The CGI will be dissolved and the services that it currently provides will be retained and extended by Golf Ireland. These services will be delivered at regional level, so clubs will have direct contact with their development/club support officer. – Many sports in Ireland are administered on a provincial basis and it is a structure that has served them well. Golf Ireland will have a National Board which will be appointed by affiliate clubs at the AGM. There will be four Regional Executives, consisting of 14 members nominated by affiliate clubs and elected by clubs at Regional AGMs. The administration of Golf Ireland will be managed from a central Head Office with support from the Regional Executive Offices. All of Golf Ireland’s regional offices will be sufficiently staffed to ensure the game of golf is administered efficiently in each region. – Events such as the Men’s and Women’s Cups and Shields will continue to be played and will be administered by Golf Ireland, as will the various championships for golfers of all ages. – A proposal will be developed on how to administer the competitions and how to integrate a new events calendar to facilitate women’s and men’s competitions. It is advised that all members keep themselves informed on this development.

Golf Ireland;  “Why”  The creation of one governing body for golf will make it easier to promote the game. It will project a clear and consistent message that golf in Ireland is inclusive, contemporary in its approach and in keeping with modern societal views, while continuing to be healthy, challenging and fun.  Ireland is the only country in the world that still has two separate governing bodies for golf, divided along gender lines. Membership numbers in clubs are challenging and the appeal of golf in Ireland, indeed as in the rest of the world, continues to decline. We need to do everything in our power to encourage participation by both men and women, boys and girls. Golf in Ireland was thriving in the 1990’s and early 2000’s, with approximately 220,000 people holding membership of affiliated clubs and playing the game. Over the last decade that number has fallen by nearly 40,000, as current membership numbers show 183,000 golfers as members of GUI and ILGU clubs. – Ireland is the only country left in the world to have two separate governing bodies for men’s and women’s golf. South Africa were the last to join and they did this in 2016. England, Scotland and Wales have all either merged or amalgamated between 2004 and 2015.  – Golfers will still continue to play their golf. Change will not adversely impact on golfers’ enjoyment of the game. Clubs can continue to run their own competitions for members and visitors, as they currently do, with both men’s and ladies’ competitions. Golf Ireland will provide guidance and support to clubs and best practice guidelines, as our sport moves to embrace a more modern culture.  It is advised that all members keep themselves informed on this development.

 

Memorabilia of 50 Years of Golf in Templemore;  Urgent call for memorabilia by PJ to all members past and present or anyone or families that were involved in golf to dig deep and search their achieves for any memorabilia that they can find.  Old photos, sayings, and good banter from the past that can be resurrected to make this project successful.   All will be appreciated and returned as received after the process.

New Golf Rules;   Balls Lost or Out of Bounds:  Alternative to Stroke and Distance:  A new Local Rule will now be available in January 2019, permitting committees to allow golfers the option to drop the ball in the vicinity of where the ball is lost or out of bounds (including the nearest fairway area), under a two-stroke penalty. It addresses concerns raised at the club level about the negative impact on pace of play when a player is required to go back under stroke and distance. The Local Rule is not intended for higher levels of play, such as professional or elite level competitions. (Key change:  this is a new addition to support pace of play)

Templemore Golf Club News;

 

Presentation Night Friday 12th. Oct. ;  A fantastic night was had by all, Ladies and Gents and visitors for this special presentation of an individual fantastic “Claret Jug Crystal” awarded to all the team players by the Woodenbridge Golf Club to this successful JB Carr Team in bringing so much credit to Templemore Golf Club in their progression to capturing 3rd. national place in such a large field of players, 186 teams and 1860 players. 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.

 

Life Long Serving Presentation;   During the above presentation Night an “Honorary Member for Life” presentation was presented on a well design parchment scroll to Mr. Pat Costello for his lifetime service to Templemore Golf Club.  Pat Costello was giving the task of initiating and organising the first meeting of the Golf Club back in 1971.  Pat was Captain in 1986 and president in 1984 and was chairperson for the 30th. anniversary celebration.  Pat was also on the JB Carr team of 2002, who acquitted themselves well against Slievenamon but lost out to Nenagh in the second round.  A brilliant dedicated historical past by Pat, and an encouragement to all members and golfers as we look forward to the 50th. Celebration in 2021.

Templemore Golf club Victorious Munster Title; 

The final leg of the “Munster Title” was played in Templemore  last Friday 10th August.  This great Templemore team had a clean sweep win 5-0 against “Cork South, Mahon Golf Club”.  It was a glorious day for golf and the course was in magnificent shape.  The Mahon Team and supporters arrived in great numbers and created a sight to behold of red and white.  A wonderful spectacle not seen in the history of Templemore Golf Club.  The semi-final will be played in Woodenbridge Golf Course on  Saturday 1st. September and the final and playoff for 3rd. and 4th. will be on Sunday 2nd. September.   The Clubs remaining in the competition are;  K-Club- V- Royal Dublin, Portumna, Ballybofey and Templemore.

The following is a unique account captured on the running of play by Templemore Golf Club Communication Secretary, Martin Bohan;

Templemore are J B Carr Munster Champions after an epic encounter;  Trailing 4 to 1 after the first leg in Mahon the previous week. Templemore entered the second leg with a degree of confidence, feeling that the 4-1 was not a true reflection of the gap between the teams.  Manager Liam Leahy retained his tried and trusted pairings, just juggling their placing in the order of play.  From the onset, Templemore were on the front foot and after 2 holes they were up in 2 matches and level in 3.  With 6 played, Templemore were up in 3 even in 1 and down in 1, consequently a glimmer of hope.  At half way, the game had tilted more in favour of the home team, the first pairing Ml. Keely\ Ambrose Purcell were 1 up, match 2 had Seamus Bourke \ Liam Daly 4 up.  Denis Tuohy\ Bertie Keane were 2 up unlucky not to be 3 up with Denis lipping out for a win on 9 and Tom Kenny\Gerry Keegan were equally unlucky to be 1 down turning. The final pair Tom McGrath\ Bernie O Rourke turned 3 up.  As things stood after 9 holes the overall match situation was level, the Templemore team and supporters were more upbeat and an element of doubt in the Mahon team and their large contingent of supporters was obvious.  At 11 the overall position was the same but 2 matches appeared to be heading for early wins for the home side, Bourke and Daly were 6 up and eventually won on 13th. 6th. and 5th.  After a great chip by Bernie, Tom had a putt for a win to go 5 up but much to the dismay of the home supporters and Tom himself it slipped by.  The match reached its inevitable conclusion on the 14th.  with a 5 and 4 win.  With 2 wins, Templemore were 1 up, 3 up and level on the course, things were slightly favouring the home side overall – “do we dare to dream”.  Touhy \ Keane advanced to win on the 16th.  3 and 2playing some outstanding golf.  Keely\ Purcell were unlucky not to be dormy playing the 16th. were 1 up playing the 17th.  only to lose and stood on the 18th. tee level but won on the 18th. with superb play leaving the match all square overall.  “Cometh the hour cometh the men” having trailed through 15 holes Kenny\ Keegan levelled on the 16th.  and had a great win on the 17th.  to be 1 up playing the 18th. Their team mates and supporters held their breath, could it happen!. The Mahon pair played 2 great shots and were pin high in 2 but to the left of the green. Thanks to a great approach shot by Tom the home side were on the green just past the pin, the Mahon’s pair chip was long and found the bunker to the right.  Following a great bunker shot a neat lag putt from Keegan led to a handshake giving a final result 5-0 and overall victory 6-4.  With unbridled  joy the home team and supporters celebrated and the dream had become a reality.  At the presentation of pennants in the clubhouse by Woodenbridge’s representative Paul Harte who congratulated both teams, both Mahon’s President and team manager were magnanimous in defeat and wished Templemore every success, thanked them for their sportsmanship, the superb condition of the course and the hospitality provided by Rody Cawley, Tony O’Toole and Pat O’Connell who served up the fabulous fare provided by Patricia Foley.  President Phil Ryan and team manager Liam Leahy thanked Mahon for their compliments and congratulated the team on their wonderful win, the evening concluded with the team and supporters relaxing enjoying the occasion with food supplied by Murphy’s Pub.

Finally, this great victory was celebrated by a great choral rendition of “Slievenamon”  sung by Seamus Bourke.

You can, of course, substitute an appropriate word or phrase of your choosing.

Golf Thought;  Setup;  To create a more athletic setup, imagine your shoulders, hips and knees in a level position with your weight spread between your feet evenly. The importance of a solid setup position cannot be denied—if you start out poorly you’ll have little chance of making a solid swing. Some key thoughts for a good setup are “stay level” and “be athletic.”

Swing Thought by Butch Hermon;    “I see these golfers who make beautiful practice swings and then step up and flash the club back so fast they have no chance. You’ve got to understand that you want to save your speed for the downswing. The only function of the backswing is to get in position to deliver the club down to the ball. But you don’t want to think about swinging back slowly—that can cause an abrupt change of speed later—so think about being deliberate. That’s what Jack Nicklaus always told himself.”

Your Swing Thought by Bubba Watson“The key is that you have to think about the shot, and when I say that, I mean you have to think about your target, not your swing. You don’t want your mind to create the bad shot. You want to think about your target, and that’s all you want to think about. You have to think about the target and not focus on anything else”.

Your Swing Thought by Bubba Watson“The key is that you have to think about the shot, and when I say that, I mean you have to think about your target, not your swing. You don’t want your mind to create the bad shot. You want to think about your target, and that’s all you want to think about. You have to think about the target and not focus on anything else”.

Your Swing Thought for the week;  Skip A Stone; The sidearm feeling of skipping a stone is a good thought for the start of the downswing, but a bad one through impact. It’s true that this image can help get the right shoulder to drop down on plane while the lower body rotates out of the way, both of which are desirable movements in the golf swing. However, the sidearm delivery associated with skipping a stone can also keep the right side down too long after impact, inhibiting the release and overstressing the spine”.

Templemore Golf Club Captain 2017 Outgoing Speech

Templemore Golf Club Captain 2017 Outgoing Speech.

President of the GUI Mr. John McLoughney and incoming president of Templemore Golf Club and members.  I have come to the end of my year as your Captain.  It was an honour and privilege for me to be your Captain in 2017 and I hope I represented you and Templemore Golf Club well.  I have to say that I enjoyed the experience and it was the opportune time for me to hold the position.

In my acceptance speech last year, I stressed our strength as a club and the importance of every member doing a little extra in time or money to help maintain our club and course.  This was evident in all those volunteers who helped to have the course in excellent condition for the Captains and Presidents competitions and again in the excellent work to clear up after the “Ophelia” Storm damage.  I thank all those involved.

I must also thank all who made the Classic and Dog Race Night such a financial success. Also for the contributions made by the Ladies Club and the Seniors Society to both of whom I am grateful.   I made changes to the format of the GOY for 2017, which proved successful.  I congratulate Dessy Hennessy the winner of my prize and thank him for the gratitude of his acceptance speech.

The Golf Club recycling project in conjunction with the Lions Club went well and our Junior Coaching Programme was very well supported.

Our Senior group are going from strength to strength and we developed a new group of Senior Ladies who play on Monday afternoons.

In 2018 we hope to run 9 hole open qualifying competitions and run our weekend competitions as opens.

Special mention, I have to thank our Green Keeper John Alexander for his excellent work, having the course in perfect condition at all times, and his co-operation during the year is much appreciated.

I am indebted to the committee for their support and co-operation during the year.

I thank Clare, my family and friends who supported me during my term as Captain and allowed me the time to devote to the post.

I wish the club continued success in the future and I wish the incoming Captain Tommy Foley well in 2018 and I assure him my full support.

In conclusion, I had hoped to have a perpetual trophy to be presented with the Captains Prize this year to honour our deceased friend Pat Delahunty who was part of the club for many years, but things did not fall into place.  This is being presented by his family and friends and I hope to finalize it in 2018.

Thank you.
