Clonmel Golf Notes

Published 2 years ago 16th July 2021 by Editor

On a week when football almost came home, golf certainly did come home in Clonmel. With the revival of “Open week” and by every yardstick was a huge success, with a great mix of visitors and members! All were complimentary of the challenges on the greens, the variation of the holes on the course and the competition formats.

I spoke to quite a few visitors over the week and each and every one of them could not get over the value for money Clonmel Golf Club has to offer.

I think the word is finally getting out about how good we have it in Clonmel Golf club.

Well done to the captain on a great selection of competitions and to the Course Chairman and staff for a challenging and exquisitely presented Golf Course.

The Week opened up with a well sponsored and supported Wynne & Associates Open Singles followed by Wynne & Associates Open Four-Ball. Thanks again to JP for two Great Competitions.

Then we had the novel Blue/Green singles presented by John

Kennedy Motors that had 100 plus entries for a midweek competition and fabulous scoring to boot with John Perry coming out on top with a massive 45 pts followed by Mikey Power with another 45pts. Gross was picked up by Dermot Maher with 34 pts. In fourth with the long awaited charge of the young guns Michael Buckley with an eye watering 43pts. Visitors Prize going to PJ Mooney 39pts.

Open week closed with “The Coolmore” Champagne scramble
O.Cooney(18),S.Kane(7) L.Cooney and S Grant(16) with 106pts

K.O’Reilly(5), A Cooney(4), D Ryan(17) and L Foran(17) 104Pts
A Kelly(7), P Kenny(10), D O’Meara(10) and N Walsh(14) 103Pts

B Greene(17),B Lambe(16),D Gunne(16), A Johnson (7) 103Pts (B6)
P O’Neill(15), M Buckley(23), J Franklin(28) & K Curran(23) 102Pts
