Ladies' Monthly Open Day

We are delighted to launch our Ladies’ Open Days, starting on Thursday April 19th. The series will run from April to September, on the 3rd Thursday of each month.

 

Over the past few years, many of our lady golfers have mentioned that the course can be quite taxing and tough to get around. With that in mind and as part of our extensive redevelopment programme, we’ve undertaken extensive work to improve the play-ability of the golf course. We’ve brought tee-boxes forward, widened landing areas on fairways and shortened the rough, making the course a most enjoyable challenge.

 

So why not get some friends together, pack up the clubs and join us for some fun on the golf course over the Summer. There will be a first & second prize at each monthly event, plus the overall winner of the series will enjoy a 1-night break in our stunning sister hotel, the 4 star Cahernane House Hotel in Killarney.

The Simon Thornton Invitational Pro-Am, 2018

We and our touring professional Simon Thornton would like to extend our gratitude to all of the professional and amateur golfers who took part in our Pro-Am last week in aid of the Beyond The Moon charity.

Conditions were fantastic, with clear skies for (almost) the entire day. The course played it's full length after substantial rainfall in the days leading up and a chill swirled the air. However, this did not stop the fantastic scores rolling in.

Twenty teams of four teed it up at 11:30 for the shotgun start. The professional in each group played in Strokeplay format, while the three amateurs competed in a Champagne Scramble format. The two best scores counted on each hole and the final results were as follows;

1st team: Tim Rice (Limerick Golf Club) Catherine Curley, Rosaline Prescott & Mags Ryan. Winning Score of 92 points.

1st professional: Damien McGrane (Carlow Golf Club). Winning Score -3 gross.

Thank you once again to all who supported the event, Pat Barrett, Simon Thornton and their team who made the day a major success. We hope to see you all back at Tulfarris Hotel & Golf Resort again soon.
