CLONMEL GOLF CLUB
Choose Your Partner - Week 7
The weather has played a significant part in the final two Rounds of the Choose Your Partner competition as it looks very much like the course will not be opened early in the week to give players the last opportunity to qualify and all we’re really hoping for at this stage is that the course will be playable on Saturday and Sunday next for the Final. It is imperative that the Final is played next weekend because there is a very full Fixture List for the year starting on St Patrick’s weekend so if you know ‘Anybody Up There’ who can influence the weather please have a word. As it stands there are 42 players on 3 points or better and these have qualified for the Final. Wishing all qualifiers the best in the Final and thanking all of those who have played throughout the competition which has been very popular and very successful.
Our grateful thanks to Martin Kane for the wonderful sponsorship
This week up to Friday next if play is possible there is a 2-Man Champagne Scramble in the Choose Your Partner competition.

It was with profound sadness that we learned of the passing of one of the great stalwarts of our Club. On Wednesday 28th February 2018 Dr Jim Morrison passed away following a prolonged illness. Jim was an Honorary Life Member of Clonmel Golf Club having served as Captain in 1970 and President in 1991. We offer our sincere condolences to his wife Maura, daughters Rachel, Celestine, Sylvia, Mary, Paula and sons Eddie, James, John & Peter. President Michael Mullane and Captains Tony Horne and Liz Binchy were joined in a Guard of Honour at the Funeral Mass on Monday last to pay homage to a wonderful and kind gentleman that Jim was. May his gentle soul rest peacefully.
