Newsletter May 30th 2009

Dear Members,

Open and Semi Open Days

Just a reminder about the Open Days on Sunday 31 May and Monday 1June - there are still some lines available on the time-sheet so if you are interested in playing please give the Pro Shop a call on 045 867609.

The next Semi Open will be on Wednesday 24 June so you could be making your plans to bring some friends along on that day.

Interclub Competitions

Our Barton Cup team under the management of Paul Fitzpatrick were narrowly beaten by Slade Valley Golf Club on Thursday evening. This is the first time that Tulfarris got to the third round and well done to all the concerned – Paul and team members – Captain Billy Reilly, Phelim Dolan, Brendan Daly, John Staunton, Michael Curran, Pearse Daly, Niall Robinson, Noel A Kelly, Kevin Higgins and Peter Pedersen.

Our South Leinster champions continue the defence of their title on Thursday 11 June against Rathdowney. We wish them well.

We are still in contention also in the Brennan Cup – all in all a great year for our interclub involvements.

Adrian Williams Commemorative Classic

As you are aware the Adrian Williams Commemorative Classic takes place on Saturday 6th June. The time-sheet is full and hopefully this lovely weather will stay with us for that day.

If you feel like sponsoring or providing a prize for the golf or for the raffle please let me know. Indeed if you cannot participate on the day and would like to send a contribution towards the fund that would also be welcome.

Two Ball Scrambles

For July and August we intend holding sociable two ball scrambles on each Wednesday evening. These 9 hole events can be played by any combination of two persons and will be followed each evening by a short get-together in the Manor Bar. Tee-times will be between 5.30 and 6.30 p.m. Based on previous experience these should be enjoyable and fun events.

Hope you and yours have a nice weekend.


John Horan,

Hon. Secretary
