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.
