President’s Prize: Pat Maher wins by a distance

The decision of our President’s John Stapleton and Kay Brennan to hold their respective competition’s over the one weekend proves that thinking outside the box yields unexpected outcomes.

After two days golf in trying conditions Pat Maher emerged as a worthy winner with 46 pts needless to say with a card with few blemishes. He was the winner by a distance as they say in racing parlance from a chasing pack all on 40 pts who filled the minor places, Padraigh Moloney, Denis Tuohy, Jody Boyle and Jerry Keegan.Scoring over the two days was good in the wild conditions with CSS 71 for both days and 26 players equaled or broke SS.

Munster Finals of Irish Ladies Golf Union

Congratulations to the ladies of Templemore Golf Club on their tremendous win over the ladies from Dromoland Golf Club in the Munster Finals of Irish Ladies Golf Union Inter Club Championships (Minor Cup) played in Clonmel.

It is a great achievement for Templemore Club to progress so far in this hotly contested competition. The competition began last April with close to seventy teams taking part from all over Munster, and has been running right through the summer.

The team had success all the way and at times couldn’t believe their good fortune when overcoming bigger clubs like Clonmel, Slievenamon, Mitchelstown, East Cork, Dooks and finally Dromoland on Sat last.

Templemore Golf Club is very proud of these ladies who have raised the profile of the club to a national level. Well done and thanks also to the caddies and manager Margie. The ladies say they met some smashing people from all the various clubs and must also add that they had great fun along the way. ‘On the several trips to Cork – to either Fota or Douglas clubs some of our people hadn’t quite figured out the Dunkettle Roundabout – on one occasion ending up at the Crematorium in Little Island – we did promise no name-dropping – they know who they are….’
