Templemore Golf Club – Captains Drive-In

Templemore Captains Drive-In
On a glorious and perfect day with a course in excellent condition on Sunday 6th March, the golf season got busy at Templemore.

2021 Captain Dinny Maher introduced the traditional golf ball to new captain Jim Ryan. Attendance was plentiful as all were excited to return to golf after long weather delays that led to course closures.

Captain Jim thanked everyone present, as well as his best wishes to the new President Michael Purcell, Lady Captain Mary Hogan and Lady President Mary Butler. Captain Jim made a presentation thanking Greenkeeper Jack Alaxendra for his dedicated work on the greens and the golf course in general. Lady Captain Mary also made a presentation on behalf of the Ladies to Jack, wishing him a happy retirement and looking forward to seeing him play golf. Father Dominic gave his full blessing and wishes for a good year of golf. The Ladies hosted a welcome reception at the Club House Lounge which was much appreciated by all as it was the first in two years due to Covid-19.
