CLONMEL GOLF CLUB
Members Prize Won By Joe O’Shea
Closing the course on Saturday last may not have gone down well with some of the members but in hindsight it was a good decision by the Course Management as it kept the course in as good a condition as possible for the first big competition of the year, i.e., the Members Prize, which is also the first Player of the Year competition of 2018. With a fantastic entry of 120 on the BRS and €400 on offer for the winner this was a real test of character over the sixteen available holes and the winner is Joe O’Shea. Joe plays off of 21 handicap and this was probably the best round of his golf life to date when he had a fantastic 38 points. Joe started with a par and had a double bogey on the second hole but it didn’t deter him and he went on to score a good sixteen points for the first seven. He was the epitome of consistency on the back nine barring two double bogeys on the par five 12th and 18th and managed a further twenty-two points for his 38 total and the winner’s prize of €400. In second place was that man again, Paul McGee, who showed that his form over the last year has not left him when he came home with a fantastic score of 39 points which represented a score of just four over par off of his 12 handicap. As can be seen Paul had the best score on the day but due to his membership conditions he had to give way to the next best score.
The gross prize was won by Billy Byrne who scored 28 gross points off of 7 handicap and in third place was Donal Foley who just just got home on the count back from three other players. The Seniors prize was won by John Kennedy playing off of 13 handicap and who had 34 points.
The Club is indebted to W O Morrissey, Architects, for the fantastic sponsorship.
