Eight handicappers Billy and Johnno show their class with win at Clonmel Golf Club



After a frustrating few days of course closures due to the incessant rain the course was finally playable and indeed the sun even came out to greet us on Saturday. Overall a good entry of 48 pairs took to the course for the Lemongrass Restaurant sponsored Magic 5/15/20 12-hole fourball.

Considering the tough going the scoring was good with a couple of 7 Ups and 6 Ups in the Magic 15 and Magic 20 sections. That man Trevor Gough was in the prizes again on 7 Up, this time with Jim Meehan (Senior) in the Magic 15 section, and equalling that 7 Up was Donal Dennehy and Conal Murphy in the Magic 20 section. Billy Byrne teamed up with John O’Brien, and both off of 8 handicap, scored a good 5 Up to win the Magic 5 section.
