Templemore Golf Club.


“Bank of Ireland Enterprise Town” On Sat. 1st. April, Our Lady’s Secondary School hosted the “Bank of Ireland Enterprise Town”.  Templemore Golf Club was well represented with a very vibrant and impressive display stand.  A lot of interest on New Memberships were expressed and also a lot of new initiatives for the club going forward were discussed with all of the Tipperary politicians and of course the main attraction was the “Dragon” himself Mr. Gavin Duffy.  Mr Duffy expressed the delight that the town of Templemore has such great potential in recreational facilities and all so close to each other that no other town can boast.  It was a fantastic opportunity to profile the Templemore Golf Club as one of the Jewels in the crown of Templemore and deserves the recognition as a fantastic recreational facility for Ladies, Gents, Juniors and Seniors.
