Seems a bit crazy that early in a round though? I know its a society outing, but if I was standing on that same hole & it was the 16th, with not much of score going, I'd let rip at that, but I'd rather not dump a ball in the water on the 4th hole & potentially having to chase to get back a score early on.

Definitely makes the LD more interesting

Still my money will be on a 5 iron off the tee to win it

I'll happily take that title...if I pick up a prize elsewhere on the day

Bottler, as well as just not being a long enough driver to take it on with any confidence.

Looks to be about a 200yrd carry from the Red Tee Box, so I'll stick my money on Poppy & OffalyMedic (no pressure guys )

I'll stick my money on someone hitting a iron off the Tee and being short of the water on the fairway

Well done, you kept it together really well. The good holes were really good and the ones you got out of shape (not many) you ground out a score. Solid golf

Played Coollattin on Thursday and couldn't get onto a fairway off the tee, irons spaying everywhere and short putts 50/50 so had zero expectations.
Super weather and company with Kilth and Break80 and the funny game that is golf turned around.
Still prefer the front 9 to the - relatively- plain back 9.
Thanks again to those organising and hopefully should be okay for Castleknock but will likely miss Carlow...

Congratulations to Offaly medic for a first win, well deserved for a regular boardsie
Thanks to princess poppy and os_head and captain Benny for the round yesterday. I think poppy had a very steady day just to scratch the last , os _head will see his handicap tumble I’m sure over the summer as he has a great game only for a few errant shots. He hit a few great shots out of the bunkers to tap in putting distance.
My own day wasn’t all that bad and a big improvement on the last 2 outings. Unfortunately I scratched the first and 3rd which killed my chances of scoring in the 30’s and 1 other hole aswell the 15th I think!
See ye all in Carlow as I won’t make the next outing.

Just to reiterate the congratulations to OffalyMedic. She's come close on a number of occasions, so great to see her close one out!

Had an OK round myself, 32 points. 19 out, with a scratch on the nearest he pin hole, 13 back, with a run of too many 1 pointers. Had a mini-dose of the shanks for the 2nd & 3rd holes (well timed when a price was available on the hole, though I don't think I'd have gotten inside Macker's effort too easily)

Thurles was a lovely course. Hadnt played it before. There are some beautiful holes that are really nicely laid out. One crazy green, on the par 3 5th might be my only complaint, though that might be more down to pin position than the actual green.

Had the pleasure of Rainbow Warrior & NewInDublin for company. Two absolute gents. As rainbow said on the 17th...are we here already, time flies in good company!

NewInDublin didn't have his best day. Has serious power & hit some cracking drives (unfortunately a couple were 2nd drives ). Also plays some really nice chips that have some serious spin which I wish I could hit. Struggled with the irons & putter, which you cant get away with in Thurles.

Rainbow Warrior played his game down on the first tee box, way more than he should. Hes a man on the way down & I can see why. Was very steady off the tee & found a lot of fairways, and also played a few lovely little bump'n'runs around the green. Was unlucky not to hole a couple of them.

All in all, a great day out again. Wont make Castleknock as I'm away, but looking forward to Carlow, which was a cracker from memories of the last boards outing there.

Great win and well deserved. First time playing together but the way you hit the ball I'm betting there's more coming. Sure next time I'm drawn against you I might as well go home

Course was another great choice and happy to get a respectable score myself to make up for a few stinkers. Good company makes it enjoyable regardless even if Golfgraffix had to shoot off early.

Getting the longest drive with my safe lay-up was the highlight
