Congratulations to long-serving club member Noel O’Brien on a fantastic win in the President’s Prize at Clonmel Golf Club on Saturday afternoon last.

Blessed with perfect weather for Michael Mullane’s Big Day, some great scores were recorded with the course playing shorter than normal at present such is the great run on the ball. Noel, calling on all his craft and experience, burned up the course further with a superb 46 points to win by three clear shots from Aaron Kelly and Ned Lonergan.

Gavin Smyth (+1) won the gross prize with 37 pts.
