Newsletter June 5th 2012

Dear Members,

Tomorrow evening sees the start of Wednesday Social Scrambles for the Summer. These competitions take place every Wednesday through to the end of August with the exception of 13 June and 11 July on which dates we have Semi Opens. The format is 9 hole 2 person Scramble (any combination) for Tulfarris Members. If you have a partner come along and if you don't have a partner come along and we will do our very best to "pair" you up. Tee times are from 5.30 - 6.30 p.m. so we look forward to seeing as many Members as possible. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us. The Captain Niall Robinson has asked me to remind you that the outstanding prizes from weekly competitions will be presented tomorrow night in the Hotel Bar after the golf so come along and enjoy the fun. Those of you who are not avid readers of the Irish Times Total Golf pages may not have seen the said Captain making the headlines in this morning's paper. I have reproduced the extract below for your information. "Robinson marks his big year in style".

It is already sure to be a memorable year for Niall Robinson at Tulfarris Golf Club, but just recently the year of 2012 got all the more memorable for him. Now a hole in one is indeed a “rare bird” for anybody during their golfing career, but a hole in one by a club captain during their year in office is surely something all the more unique. Yet that feat has just been achieved by Robinson.

Robinson, is the captain for 2012 at Tulfarris, and recently playing in his visiting captains competition he aced the 180-yard par-three 16th hole, holing out with a three wood hit into a strong breeze.

And no more happy were his playing partners, who included fellow club member Noel Fannin, Paul Dunne, the captain of Roundwood and Margaret McMahon, Lady Captain at Glenmalure who described his ace as “a perfectly hit three wood landing two feet from the hole, one bounce and straight in”.
