I would like to start by welcoming all members and visitors to Couty Tipperary Golf & Country Club’s website and thank them for their support during the last year. A big thank you to Jeff Leo for inviting me into the role of club president. It is such an honour and a privilege to follow in the footsteps of those that held the role before me, especially the late Austie Crowe the founder of this great golf club, we will miss him greatly.
Like all great clubs, evolution and change bring about success. The constant upgrading of facilities on and around the course has see Dundrum rise in the rankings and become a course that, as members, we are extremely proud of. With the new high tech driving range, irrigation system, new bunkers and tee boxes our course will become one of the finest courses not only in Tipperary but also nationwide.
Both Committees, with captains Darren and Jacinta, have worked tirelessly all year and as president I must thank them as they are the lifeblood of the club. The club and open competitions that are available every week allows both members and visitors the opportunity to have some fun, enjoy a bit of fresh air and test out their golfing prowess. Together with Marion and her team, Brian and his greenkeepers, they all make the golfing experience a pleasure and my role as president very easy.
I look forward to 2024 as it promises to be a great golfing year. I encourage you all to dust down your clubs and come and join us on the inviting fairways in Dundrum. Golf gives everyone the opportunity to meet old and new friends in a healthy welcoming environment. Pick up the phone and arrange a game I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
See you all next year.
Paddy Fitzgerald. President.
