Classic Appreciation by Captain Jim Ryan.

A fantastic weekend of golf.  Our 2022 Club Classic saw great weather and great golf.  Templemore Golf Club recently signed a 21 year lease with the OPW giving the Club its own Autonomy.  This gives Templemore Golf Club great stability and a very positive future going forward.  But it will also bring its own financial challenges, that’s why the Annual Club Classic is very important for our Club.  40 teams played over the weekend, the Senior Men played on Thursday and Senior Ladies played on Monday.  I’d like to thank the team sponsors, members and visitors that played in the Club Classic.  Also a huge appreciation to local commercial sponsors and to the overwhelm support from Golf Clubs all over the country.   A lot of work goes into the running of the Classic, organising prizes, catering, registering’s players and tallying the results, checking the lotto, getting the course ready.  Thanks to the Club Committee especially the Competition and Course management teams.  We look forward to your continued support.  All very much appreciated by the Club.  Captain Jim Ryan.
