Saturday Club
Almost 50 hardy golfers turned out for the Christmas ‘bottles’ outing for the Saturday Club at Tuam Golf Club. The weather conditions earlier in the week were certainly not conducive for golf but Saturday proved to be a glorious day and it certainly brought out big numbers.  Four-handicapper John Bodkin, who is playing outstanding golf at the moment, brought in 29 points for 12 holes which was a one under part total and took the main prize from Tom McHugh in second while Danny McGrath took the gross.  There was good praise for the condition of the course in light of the adverse weather conditions that has persisted in recent weeks.
