Last week saw the continuation of the popular Summer Series and this proved to be another victory for a team from Rathsallagh Golf Club ably led by James Fitzpatrick. This team were also victorious in the Winter Series some months ago and so continued their rich vein of form. Played on Wednesday last, during our continued troubled summer, they emerged convincing winners with 93 points.
On Sunday last the Member/Guest series also continued with a 3 person rumble over 18 holes. On a day that Tipperary people might rather forget, the winning team were a family of Clonmel Golf Club members who kept the blue and gold colours flying by returning a winning score of 83 points. They were 4 shots clear of their nearest rivals, who are from just across the border in the Windgap area, and they returned a score of 79 points.
This week members are reminded that the Autumn maintenance is taking place which is due to finish today, Wednesday, and this will have the course in pristine condition for the President‘s, (Des Fitzgerald) Prize due to take place on 15th September.
