The Grange Golf Club in Rathfarnham is a much respected golf course. It’s manicured golf course and pristine facilities make it stand out from the crowd. It was no surprise that over 170 golfers appeared to compete in the JSC and SSC - two brand new events on the TopGolfer Tour for 2012.

An impressive 44 different golf clubs were represented on the day. We’d particularly like to extend a big thank you to TopGolfer players that travelled quite a distance from clubs like Tipperary, Enniscorthy, Callan, Galway, Athy, Mountrath, Faithlegg, Mt. Wolseley, Scarke, Skibbereen, Galway, Waterville and Co. Sligo.

With a gross score of 72, victory went to Scott Williams (5) from The Castle Golf Club. Donal Murphy (5) from Co. Sligo Golf Club had to settle for 2nd place, after been beaten on a back 9 countback. Third was Jack McDonnell (5) from Forrest Little Golf Club on 74, and fourth place went to Conn Buckley from The Grange Golf Club, also on 74 gross. Prizes (1st to 4th) have been left at Grange GC for collection.

TopGolfer loves to hear about passionate golfers that are striving to improve their game and better their handicap. From the start of the 2012 season we have been following a recently turned 14-year golfer from Galway Golf Club, and his quest to drop his handicap from 12 to 9 so he could play in a TopGolfer event. Mikey Burke achieved this feat in the space of a few short months and joined Ireland’s exclusive club of single figure golfers – competing in his first TopGolfer event at the Grange. Mikey clearly isn’t fazed by the ‘big occasion’ as he managed to shoot a fantastic 76 gross – earning him a tie for 6th place in his first outing. Something tells me it won’t be long before Mikey is competing in Senior Scratch Cups. Well done Mikey and welcome to the TopGolfer club !

Congratulations also must be given to Brendan Martin from Kilcoole Golf Club, who aced the par-3 2nd Hole.

CSS for the day was 71 (+3).
