Interclubs:

Tulfarris finished the Garden County Trophy on a high note with a 5-1 win against Lisheen Springs. The focus now moves to the first round of the Barton Cup in April.

The club were represented by:

Tulfarris have entered a new interclub competition this year called the Central Towns Trophy hosted by Tullamore Golf Club. It is an open draw where the competing teams will consist of five male members, playing singles scratch match play. The playing handicaps of team members shall not have been less than thirteen (13) on 1st January in the year of the tournament. The playing handicap held by a player on 1st January is the operative handicap throughout the Tournament.

Finally, we would like to encourage all members to consider putting their names forward for the various interclub panels currently being assembled. To this end, many team managers have posted sheets in the pro-shop to get expressions of interest. 

Date for the Diary:

The rescheduled Captain's Drive-In takes place on Sunday the 22nd March. The system goes live for registration next Saturday 14th March.

Kind Regards

Shemus Dore, Hon Secretary
