On the 29th April, the Annual Golf Classic to raise funds for the Leisure Centre, was held in Tuam Golf Club. Although the day was disappointing weather-wise, thankfully it did not keep the golfers at home. There was a good turnout of teams, thanks mainly to the dedicated efforts of the Golfing Committee. Presentation of prizes took place in the Summerfield Bar (a special thanks to Tom and Julie McKenna, main Sponsors) on the evening of the Competition. There was a big turn-out and 11 teams prizes were presented.
Congratulations to the winning team Jimmy Moran, Tommy Moran, Gearoid Hartigan and James Giles. This team brought in an excellent score on the Friday evening, (100 points), and they had to sweat it out throughout the entire day on Saturday, but their score held good and everyone was delighted to see the local team cycle off into the sunset on their beautiful bicycles (1st Prize). All joking aside lads, well done.
Result of the Competition:
- 1st Team Jimmy Moran, Tommy Moran, Gearoid Hartigan, James Giles
- 2nd Team Frank Small, David Small, Noel Murphy, Paddy Darcy
- 3rd Team Declan Shaughnessy, Kieran Shaughnessy, Jim Cloonan, Frank Starkin
