Thurles Golf Club news and calendar
Well, it’s official, the Thurles Golfing season is officially open after the Drive In of our captains and presidents. On Sunday 27, President Mary Coman O’Neill along with Captains Lorraine O’Keeffe and Thomas Maguire announced the new golf season.
Led off the 10th tee by Moycarkey-Borris man John Moloughney and surrounded by friends, supporters and fellow golfers, everyone hit the ball straight and fair. Of course each of them is used to playing in front of crowds who have represented the Club at different levels.
Not to be outdone, our two junior captains, Michelle Flanagan and Jack Cashin also led the way.
This year promises to be the best year yet for our juniors with strong membership at all ages. Classes and competitions will resume very soon. So, if a young person would like to take up golf, do not hesitate to contact the office or one of our two Junior Captains, we would love to hear from you.
It was great to be back at the clubhouse for food and banter after a shotgun-mixed champagne rush.
What a good start to the year!
