A major fundraising Golf Competition, to help finance the laying of tarmac in the car-park at the Centre, was held in Tuam Golf Club on Saturday, 17th April. In spite of the weather, which deteriorated steadily as the day progressed, the Competition was a wonderful success. 72 teams of two competed in the 2-ball scramble. Thanks to the tremendous support of our sponsors, we were able to present a total of 20 team prizes (which included televisions, bicycles, mobile phones, portable music centres, dinner vouchers—to list a few) plus the usual prizes for Longest Drive and Nearest and Pin. Presentation of Prizes took place in the Summerfield Bar (one of the main sponsors of the event) and there was a great turnout on the night. The following are the main results:

  • 1st Team Kevin Cunniffe and Tom Lucas
  • 2nd Team Michael Coen and Peter Coen
  • 3rd Team Alan Moran and Paul Leufer
  • 4th Team Tony Baynes and Paul Gilson
  • Longest Drive Martin Naughton
  • Nearest to Pin Paul Leufer

The Committee of the Leisure Centre are extremely grateful to the Golf Sub-Committee, consisting of Gearoid Hartigan, Jimmy Moran and Martin Casserly who undertook the running of this event with their usual efficiency. A word of thanks also to our sponsors, who made this financial success possible. A full list of sponsors will be included in the next issue of Nuacht Chláir.
