Golf classic a major success
Last weeks golf classic in Mount Wolseley proved to be an outstanding success with over 120 golfers representing 30 teams taking part. Victory in the team of four stableford went to Jones Environmental L.T.D with a score of 88 points. In second position with 86 points were Clogrennane Lime while local golfer Ray Curran captained the third team with a score of 83 points. Tinryland’s Tom Delaney won the prize for nearest the pin at the 9th hole while the longest drive was recorded by Pat White of Jones Environmental. Former members and players travelled from many parts to take part in the golf classic which raised much-needed funds for club development. Following the presentation dinner at Mount Wolseley which was addressed by Tinryland chairman Ned Deane many of the participants later returned to the Tinryland clubhouse to view a recording of the Carlow feile final and welcome the Tinryland players on the victorious Presentation College team who were in attendance with the All Ireland colleges cup.
