Our Teams 2017

2017 saw a great start to the year with the Ladies Intermediate Team bringing in a fine 3/2 win against Cobh in Charleville.

Our Minor and Challenge Cup teams battled hard right to the end but just lost out in Fermoy and Cahir.

Juniors

Irish Junior Foursomes 2017

Irish Junior Foursomes 2017

Guided by Brian Devlin the Junior Foursomes unfortunately lost out narrowly – on the 18th in both matches.  Our pairs were Niall O’Shea + Patrick Kennedy, Niall Hogan + Steve Patten.  The standard of golf was excellent and matches were played in an extremely sporting fashion. The Junior’s in the Club can teach us all a thing or two about carefree and exciting golf. These youngsters have total belief in their ability and don’t understand the feeling of that nagging ‘what if the ball goes right’ type of thought which can pop up just on the downswing.

 

Ladies Senior Cup

Well, what can we say? These Ladies, along with Club Members & Officials, did us very proud on a very special weekend for the Club. Nerves were jangling both on the tee-box and behind the scenes. Given all the effort that had been put in this was now the moment of truth, ‘would everything go as planned?’. Fear not, the weekend was a fantastic success all round. Our Ladies Senior Cup team gave us a thrilling weekend at TGC. While the Cup didn’t stay at the Club past the weekend the Ladies put in an unbelievable performance and were only just pipped in the quarter-final by eventual runners-up Lahinch. Rather than repeating all the accolades here I think you need to take a read of the report for the weekend. Just Fantastic.

 

Jimmy Bruen

 

Fantastic Jimmy Bruen Supporters 2017

Under the stewardship of Michael O’Brien our Jimmy Bruen team travelled to a tough Clonmel course breezing past Slievnamon in Round 1 only to come up just shy against the local favourites, Clonmel, who went undefeated over the weekend. A late ‘back-door’ area-semi-final re-entry, due to a handicap slip-up by Clonmel, saw us pitted against the local foe, Ballykisteen, on a beautiful Summers evening at Dundrum. At such short notice the support shown from Tipperary GC was fantastic and is always much appreciated.

Our first match out, Donal Elliot & Pat Fanning, got off to a flying start being 2up through the first few holes. The BallyK pairing then got into their stride stringing together a series of pars & birdies, fighting back to win that rubber on the 15th. Adam Long and Tom J Ryan took everything in their stride, winning their point with ease on the 15th to level the scores at one a piece. The strong pairing of Patrick Ryan & Michael Keaty were surprisingly 2 down with 2 to play. They showed great fighting spirit winning both 17 & 18 to bring the match down the 19th.  This was surely going to be the key match with the final two matches being 1up and 1down going down the 17th. Ultimately a great bunker shot from BallyK put too much pressure on our own pairing and BallyK took the point on the 20th. The last but one match , Ger Ryan and DJ Lynch, were beaten on the 17th 2&1 and the final pairing, Eddie Walsh & Dan McKenna, were called in, leaving the result at 3.5/1.5 in favour of BallyK. On a positive note we blooded some new young hounds and they can’t wait to get some more action time. They are itching to fight for their place in next year’s team. Well done to BallyK, we wish them luck in the area final.
