CLONMEL GOLF CLUB
The four new Captains - Mrs. Liz Binchy-Lady Captain, Mr Tony Horne-Men’s captain, Ms Ciara Walsh-Junior Girls Captain and Mr. Aidan Hickey-Junior Boys Captain, all had their Drive-In on New Year’s Day and got the Club off to a great start for the New Year..we wish them all the best of luck for the year. The drive-in was followed by a 12 hole scramble and for whatever reason - maybe the weather - only 20 teams participated. However, it was very enjoyable for those who did play and there was a good buzz around the Clubhouse afterwards.
On the Course
The recent wet weather has not been kind to the course and presently both the third and eleventh holes are closed due to water logging and there is a temporary tee box on the eight. The new competition - Choose Your Partner - which starts on Monday 8th is curtailed to 11 holes for this week due to the holes being closed and hopefully at least one of the two will re-open for the next round of the new competition. The handicap allowance remains at 3/5 for the 11 holes. The Club is grateful to Martin Kane for his generous sponsorship for this competition. The new Course Index was announced in the last couple of weeks and has been well received by the members. It will be reviewed at the end of the year when 18 hole competitions have concluded.

part in the 4 Ball Scramble. Congratulations to the winners “ The Quinlivan Team’ ( Brid,
Roisin, Padraig & PJ) and to the Captain’s & Vice Captain’s team, who came 2nd. There
