|Mount Juliet's terrific par three 14th.|
Top Golfer is up and raring to go for the 2015 Irish golfing season. Bigger and better than last year – just as it was the year before – the schedule now boasts 38 events across the country.
There’s not much point reading on if your handicap is higher than 9 or 10, because these events are for Junior and Senior Scratch Cup golfers… and are very competitive environments (if you want them to be).
You can play one; you can play them all. There’s an Order of Merit for those with a seriously competitive edge, and winners all qualify for the play-offs and the Championship final. Believe me, there are amateur golfers out there who treat this as the Holy Grail.

With play-offs at Mount Wolseley and the Tour Championship at Mount Juliet, it's well worth getting involved.There’s also the added benefit of very reasonable entry fees:

If you’re already signed up, good luck, wherever you’re playing. If you haven’t, get busy because the events book up fast and the goodie bag is always worth the trip. I’ll see you in New Forest… €20… that’s a no-brainer.
