Golf News

Scratch Cups
Despite some inclement weather at times over the weekend, the Kenmare GC and Ring of Kerry GC Scratch Cups were a great success, with lots of visitors checking out Kenmare’s courses over the weekend. This was an initiative well worth doing and will be looked at again for next year.

Team Competitions
Excellent competitions to watch out for this September include:
Templenoe GAA Classic at the Ring OF Kerry GC on Sept 8th and 9th
Kenmare Golf Club Corporate Classic on Sept 29th and 30th.
Mark the dates in your diary!

3 Brothers Challenge
Unfortunately this competition is ongoing at the time of writing, so results will be available in the next edition of the Kenmare News. At the moment, 180 golfers are doing their best with their Brothers on the Kenmare GC Course, and there are going to be lots of similar-looking groups of people in Kenmare all weekend!

Adult and Child Comp
The annual adult and child competition in kenmare GC takes place on Sun Sept 10th. This is a family-friendly fun comp, with BBQ afterwards. It’s also the time of year where the adults get brought down to earth when they see how good the junior golfers are. All welcome – check local posters and Facebook for entry details, or contact the club.
Happy Golfing!
