CLONMEL GOLF CLUB
The timesheet was full, everybody looking forward to a nice Saturday outing but the weather had the last word and only a few souls ventured out on the course. Sunday brought a beautiful sunny day though there was a cool northerly breeze which had many a player ‘sweating out of the nose like a turkey’ before they reached the first green. Soft underfoot but it didn’t deter the winners of the 4-man champagne scramble who were John Molloy, Jimmy Ryan, Donncha Doyle and Jim Meehan Snr with a good score of 83 points.
