Dear Members,

Garden County Trophy
Our first interclub outing for 2013 was in the Garden County Trophy competition yesterday vs Blessington Lakes. Each team had 6 pairs playing Foursomes golf on a match play basis. The maximum allowed combined hadicap for any pair was 14 and all matches are then played off
scratch.

While we had some last minute cry-offs we have a good panel and could still field a strong team. Thank you to everyone for making themselves available. The following was the Tulfarris team for this outing:

At HOME in Tulfarris:

Noel A Kelly (6) and Niall Robinson (9)
Ronnie Carroll (7) and Paul Fitzpatrick (8)
Stephen Cullen (6) and Sheamus McGrath (8)
AWAY in Blessington Lakes
Ciaran Curley (7) and Joe McConville (8)
Liam O'Loughlin (5) and Pearse Daly (9)
Brendan Daly (5)and James McCarron (9)

Tulfarris came out ahead on the day by 3.5 to 2.5. Any day when a club can come out ahead of the strong competitors from Blessington Lakes has to be a good one. Well done everyone.

We now have 3.5 points in the Garden County League and need to build on this on Saturday 16 February when we take on Lisheen Springs in our next outing.

Valentine Scramble Love (of golf) will be in the air next Sunday 10 February for the annual Valentine Scramble. Please get your name down in the usual manner ahead of the draw which
takes place next Friday. 

The format will be tea/coffee and check-in from  8.30 a.m. in Adrian's Bar for a scramble with a shot gun start at 9.30 a.m. Golf will be followed by soup and sandwiches and presentation of prizes in the Elm Tree Restaurant overlooking the 18th green. 

Regards,

John Horan,
