In bitterly cold conditions last Sunday Ballykisteen Golf Club held the final of the Spring League with 7 teams participating.

The competition was the same format but over the full 18 holes and the team that held their nerve and won out on a score of 100Pts (on countback) was Team R of Frankie Nolan, Liam Downey, John Ryan and Paddy Maher. They have the bragging rights for the next 12 months as Spring League Champions.

In Second Place also with 100Pts was Team U of Joe McDonald, Denis O’Brien, Paudie Ryan and James Keane.

We would like to thank Dave Kavanagh, DOE Test Centre, Tipperary, for his kind Sponsorship of the Spring League. The committee would also like to thank all the members who supported this year’s Spring League and made it a great success. Winners of the 9 hole Scramble were Mike Keegan, Kevin O’Hora, Cathal Frawley and Dave Frawley
