Club Notes: 3rd April 2016

Pitch and Putt - Anthony Culhane Tipp Hills wins John Shoer Memorial

Hillview was the venue for the 2016 playing of the John Shoer Memorial. A splendid turnout of 94 players was an eloquent testament to the great man and his contribution to Tipperary Pitch & Putt.

After a slow and cold start to the day the sun came out and in no time at all Hillview was showing its teeth despite the soft ground conditions. Here we should say thanks to the ground staff (Richard Blanche and Richard McGrath) for producing another excellent course despite the awful weather we have had recently which was appreciated by all including sponsors the Tipperary County Board.

After a long day the overall winner was Anthony Culhane (Tipp Hills) by 2 shots from Stephen Shoer (Riverdale) with the 2015 winner Kieran Earls a further shot behind in third place. Anthony's performance in the playoffs was exceptional making him a worthy winner.

Other winners were:

Ladies - winner Eleanor Walsh Fermoy, - runner up Breda Lonergan

Gents - Junior class- David Cahill, Hillview   - runner up - Tom Morris

Intermediate class winner - Bobby O' Donnell, Tipp Hills, - runner up- Jimmy Quinn

Senior class - 36 hole gross Tommy Hanley, Bruff, last 18 gross Eddy Hennessy Tramore.

A special well done David and Tom for keeping the Hillview flag flying and to John Fitzgerald who made it to the Senior playoff. Presentations of all prizes were made in the bar after the playoff by County Board Chairman Michael Brennan and his team.
