Munster Seniors Amateur Open Championship at Tramore Golf Club
Tuesday 10 & Wednesday 11 May 2016
Sponsored by MAJESTIC HOTEL TRAMORE
Top Class field in place for Munster Seniors.
Portmarnock’s Adrian Morrow leads the 120 golfers who will play in the Munster Senior Amateur Open at Tramore Golf Club on the 10th & 11th May. The event has a new sponsor with the Majestic Hotel Tramore agreeing to support the prestigious championship.
Tramore had a great week last August when they hosted the Irish Close Championship. The course and the hospitality came in for great praise from all of the golfers over the course of the week, and all of the players can expect a warm welcome from all involved with the club. Following an upgrade of the course under the guidance of Jeff Howes, Tramore now boasts 27 holes with sand based greens constructed to USGA standard. Tramore Golf Club was awarded Club of the Year at the Annual Delegates meeting of Munster Golf last November.
Holder Tom Cleary is not in the field due to holiday commitments but three-time winner Arthur Pierce will be aiming for an unprecedented fourth win. 2015 runner up John Mitchell will carry local hopes and he’s joined in the field by fellow Irish Senior Internationals Maurice Kelly and Adrian Morrow. Gareth McGimpsey is another player who will be hoping to improve on last year’s top ten finish. Tramore’s Francis Reynolds, Kevin Murray, John Hayden and Michael Sullivan will also be hoping that local knowledge can help them during the two rounds.
