Qualifier Royal Curragh. 23rd June
The Tulfarris Jimmy Bruen team took to the fairways of Royal Curragh Golf Club on Saturday 23rd June. The team, managed by Mark Reilly, went up against 18 other teams on the day to try and clinch one of the top 4 positions which would have taken us into a semi-final match on the Sunday. The Tulfarris team on the day was as follows:
Gavin Buckley & Eoin Curley, John McFall & John Hyland
Shemus Dore & Niall Robinson, Conor Fallon & Jay Curley
James McCarron & Kieran Feely
The course was playing firm and fast on the day and was more like a links course than an inland course. This made for some hot scoring with Cill Dara, Royal Curragh and Naas making the most of the excellent conditions to clinch 3 of the top 4 positions. 4th Place was in our sights for a while coming down the stretch but ultimately we were a few shots shy of the 330 target that was ultimately clinched by Dunmurry Springs Golf Club. Team manager, Mark Reilly, really appreciated the efforts of the team on the day and would like to thank the players for turning out and doing the club proud. It was also great to see some of our new members going into battle for Tulfarris and we have some strong new additions to our panel of interclub players. This is a competition we should be thriving in given the potential panel of players we have in the handicap range and hopefully next year we can make that breakthrough to the Sunday semi-final.
