There was a modest turn-out for the Saturday Club outing at Tuam Golf Club as the adverse weather conditions took their toll. However, it did not prove a hindrance for young Mark Colleran, the Saturday Club’s newest member, as he shot 21 points for 10 holes which was a tremendous score in the circumstances. He will be a force to be reckoned with for the season ahead.
The Saturday Club resumes on this coming Saturday, November 18 and new members are always welcome. The traditional bottles outing has been fixed for Saturday, December 16. An away outing in the New Year will also be finalised.
