Course of the Month - St.Patricks, Enniscorthy, Ireland.


The pitch and putt course in Enniscorthy was developed by the St. Patrick's Park development committee in the sixties. St. Patrick's pitch and putt club was first established in 1968 and affiliated to the P.P.U.I. the following year.
The course, which is approached via Parnell Avenue, was officially opened by hurling legend Nicky Rackard who accepted the honour of striking the first tee shot and sent the ball sailing out of the grounds into the Garda Station in Pearse Road. However, the course christened so lustily by Nicky Rackard bears but scant resemblance to the present layout in the 21st century, with the 16th green the only one in continuous use since 1968.
The first captain of the club was Aidan Ryan of Edermine who held office in 1968 and 1969, and also devised the original layout transforming farmland into a challenging eighteen hole course. The longest standing competition on the calendar at St. Patrick's is for the Kavanagh cup.The national strokeplay event of 1994 was one of the best ever - the course was at its best after a great effort by the club, while Sean Downes lit up the place with a lowest ever 36 holes total for the event.
Two members have been ever-present since 1968. Peter Carroll, now club president, was esteemed as treasurer for 20 years. Also on the roll throughout has been Seamus Comerford, the only honary life member. In 2004, the first adult provincial title was brought home to Parnell Avenue, when Kieron Morrissey captured the Leinster intermediate matchplay title. Currently, St. Patrick's pitch and putt club claims 155 members, ranging in age from eight up to 80. The course is a valuable recreational facility, whether as the cockpit for competive sport or as a relaxing outdoor pastime. It is the home course of the current President of FIPPA.
