In total, ten teams from across the province competed on the day, with Nenagh Golf Club coming out on top and placing first.

Provincial winner

Over the past five months, the NCBI Specsavers HolmPatrick Cup has seen GUI-affiliated golf courses across the country hold qualifying tournaments from local to county level. Now, these winners are competing in the provincial finals to compete for a place at the final. The four provincial winners, including Nenagh Golf Club will play at the final, which is hosted this October at the world-renowned St Andrew’s Links in Scotland.
