July 9th Update

Dear  Members,

 

A number of additional updates for you, starting with fantastic news from our inter-club campaigns:

Provincial Towns  Quarter Final Versus Wicklow.

Update from team manager Denis Mahon:

Tulfarris was once again looking its glorious best for the Provincial Towns quarter final against Wicklow last Sunday. The weather didn't disappoint and neither did the golf.  All of the Tulfarris team played their part; some came up against players in very hot form, covering most of the course in under par.  With the first four matches shared, the final crucial game came down to the wire with Tom O’Rourke pulling out all the stops to win a dramatic match on the 19th. It was a great team effort by everyone on the day.

Away from home we faced a team that won their final in 2016 9-0 at home so we knew what to expect and to claim 2.5 pts (It was looking like 3 but one match was called in) from a possible 4 was unheard of there, some of the new players on the team produced the goods on the day which lead to an overall result of 5.5 / 3.5 and we now face into a semi-final against 2017 winners Enniscorthy GC on Sunday 15TH July with 5 matches away and 4 at home.

Our team on the day was as follows but I would also like to acknowledge the assistance received from Paul Fitzpatrick who looked after affairs at home as Tom was ‘’doing his thing’’ on the course and also John Field, Pat Curley, John Curley, Jerry Lambe,Captain Shemus Dore,& Enda Daly for caddying on the day.

Thank you all for your support and hopefully we see all our members out supporting the team again in the semi-final on 15th July
