Week 6: Leaders :Gross - Denis Mahon & James McCarron 32 Net: Lady Capt. Catherine Curley & Pat McCarton

Dear Member

Over 40 golfers took to the fairways in ideal golfing conditions for this evening's Scramble.

The scoring reflected the good conditions and both the Best Gross and the Best Nett for the year so far were challenged.

James McCarron and Denis Mahon set a Gross target of 32 last week and this evening Niall Robinson and Charlie Magee matched it. On countback however James and Denis still hold the lead. There was some consolation for Niall and Charlie as they claimed second place tonight with their Nett score of 27.0.

The Best Nett up to tonight was 26.0 by Lady Captain Catherine Curley and Pat McCartan. The winners this evening came close - but not quite close enough - with a score of 26.2 - well done to Joe Piggott and Declan Byrne. 

Finally we send good wishes to Enda and Lenny and their South Leinster team for their quarter-final match v Royal Curragh on Saturday afternoon.

Week 5: Seasons Leaders Gross: James McCarron & Denis Mahon 32 : Net - Lady Capt. Catherine Curly & Pat McCarton 26.0

It was a very pleasant evening for golf in Tulfarris with more than 50 members taking part in the 2 Person 9 Hole Social Scramble.

There were many good scores - 13 pairs had less than 30 Nett points!

The Best Gross for the year so far was held by Jerry and Ciaran Lambe with a score of 33. This was passed out tonight by James McCarron and Denis Mahon with a great 4 under par 32. Well done lads. This also got them a good Nett score of 28.0.

There was another 28.0 however and on countback in second place tonight were Frances and Sean Lambe. Well done to them - the 'bragging rights' in the Lambe household just took a shift! 

The Best Nett up to this evening was 27.2 by Kieran Malone and Vinny Moran. The winners tonight have now taken the lead and set a tough target for the rest of the Summer with a really great score of 26.0. Congratulations to Lady Captain Catherine Curley and Pat McCartan. 

Week 4: Season Leaders: Gross: 33 C&J Lambe : Net 27.2 K.Malone & V.Moran

This weeks event:  Despite quite unpleasant weather up to 5pm this evening the Scramble went ahead and the rain dispersed then to leave a pleasant evening for golf.

Denis Mahon and James McCarron put in a good effort to catch the Best Gross so far but with a 34 came up just one short!

Close behind on the Gross front with a 35 and in second place tonight with a Nett score of 28.8 were John and Alan Britton. 

The winners with a good score of 28.6 were another father and son combination, President Les and Scott Broderick.


Wk 3: Season Leaders: Gross: 33 C&J Lambe : Net 27.2 K.Malone & V.Moran

We had a 'first' this evening for the Summer Social Scrambles. In all the years since these started in 2001 we have never before teed off with a Met Eireann 'HEAT WARNING' in place!

And to match the weather there was some 'hot' scoring also. In second place with a good score of 28.2 were Audrey and John Finnegan,

On the Best Gross front Denis Mahon and James McCarron had a 33 to take the lead - only to then be pipped at the post on countback by another 33 from Ciaran and Jerry Lambe who were the winners tonight with a great Net score of 27.4.

Congratulations to the prize winners.

Incidentally, tonight's results might augur well for the Club's remaining Interclub outings with prizewinners scheduled to play on the teams. First up will be Ciaran Lambe playing away in Dunmurry Springs on Saturday afternoon in the South Leinster competition. Then on next Thursday Audrey Finnegan will be playing for the Ladies Club team in their quarter-final match against Carrick-on-Suir in Carlow. Best wishes to them and to the two teams.      

Next Scramble at the same time (4 to 6pm) next Wednesday.


Wk 2

The first of the 2017 Summer Social Scrambles teed off this evening with 42 golfers out in pleasant golfing weather.

The best gross score was a solid 34 from Gerry and Jack Solan. This now becomes the target to beat for the overall Best Gross for 2017. Given that 30 has been the winning score for each of the past 4 years there is still some likely room for improvement from the club's 'big hitters' in coming weeks. 

In second place (with another solid gross of 36) and a net score of 27.8 were another father and son combination - President Les and Scott Broderick. 

The winners this evening with (a gross of 35) and a really good net score of 27.2 were Kieran Malone and Vinny Moran.  This now becomes the target for the Best Net for 2017.

Congratulations to this evening's prize winners and we look forward now to each Wednesday evening's scrambles through to the end of August.

The Summer Social Scrambles for Tulfarris Members will be starting soon. With an "Irish" twist these Wednesday Scrambles will start this year on a Thursday - June 8th. From then on they will revert to Wednesday evenings from June 14th through to August 30th.

The Scrambles will tee off each evening between 4 and 6pm. As always we would encourage as many members as possible to come along in the first hour to avoid a 'rush' at the end. The format will be Two Person (any combination) 9 Hole Scramble Gross Strokes reduced by one-fifth of the team's combined handicap. The golf will be followed by the presentation of prizes - and whatever you're having yourself - in the Members Bar.

So, on Thursday June 8th all you need to do is turn up at the Golf Shop with your €2 entry fee between 4 and 6pm. If you have a partner arranged in advance that will be fine. For those who are flying 'solo' we will do our best to arrange a partner for you on the evening.

Looking forward to seeing as many members as possible on Thursday June 8th and on subsequent Wednesday evenings during the Summer.
