Tubber Masters Society Annual Golf Outing to Enniscrone Golf Club – Monday the 12th August 2019
One of the Oldest Golf Societies operating in Connacht continues its Annual Golf Outing to Enniscrone Golf Club on Monday the 12th August 2019.
The Tubbercurry Golf Outing to Enniscrone has been in existence for well over 40 years and traditionally has always played on the second Monday in August at Enniscrone Golf Club. For 35 years of its long existence the Outing was sponsored by The Gillespie Family of Tubbercurry and many great days were had by The Society with many a story to be told. The Gillespie Cup was formally retired in August 2017 but The Society Outing continues under its new brand name of The Tubber Masters Society. Last year’s event was as popular as ever with a large turnout of Golfers attending The Annual Outing in Ennisrone. While the Society is intrinsically linked to Tubbercurry Golf Club and all Members of The Society the Outing is open to anyone who has a connection with Tubbercurry or its environs. The day is a huge social occasion where people from the locality can renew old acquaintances and make new friends. You should pencil this date in your diary and the time sheet will be operated once again by John Gillespie who has done trogon work over the years for the Society. John’s contact numbers are 071 91 85051 and 087 2885980 and you can contact him to get your place on the time sheet. Looking forward to seeing all our old friends and hopefully new friends on the second Monday in August in Enniscrone.
