Templemore Golf Club Captain Dinny Maher,
“Application Team” Appreciation.
“Thanks to everyone for your kind comments regarding the successful grant application to Golf Ireland. It was a lot of hard work, but we have a good team on the job and as with every team someone plays a blinder and that was Liam Daly. We have also made an application for Capital Sports Grant and fingers crossed we will have a successful outcome with that also. On the golf course, we are working hard to have it ready for a resumption of golf in April. The weather has been a little bit kinder of late after a very wet winter on our fairways. So, start getting the clubs out and polishing them up and when we get the go ahead, we can start the golfing year in earnest.”
Club Captain Dinny Maher. Stay Safe.
