Members Achievements

The Ladies of Rathbane Golf Club won the Southern District of the ILGU Munster Cup in 2004, when the team was Maura Seymour (10), Shirley Real (12), and Patricia Kelly (14).


The Men of Rathbane Golf Club won the Regional Final of the Pierce Purcell Shield, in their first appearance at East Clare Golf Club on 7th May 2000, when the team was, John Twomey, Philip Byrne, James Keane, Conor O'Brien, Sean McGuirk, David Byrnes, Leonard Fitzgerald, Eamonn Ryan, Paul Hogan, James Ford, John Cooke, Larry Johnson and Noel Slater.


John Purcell the Captain of Rathbane Golf Club in 2007 holds the Course Record at Shannon Golf Club, as a member back in 1983 John shot a 63 playing off a handicap of 7 he shot the lights out, recording 3 Eagles out of 4-holes, the 5th, 6th and 8th (Is this a World record?) While doing my research I have come across some remarkable Golf Achievements but this one is definitely in the top deck, as John tells me before he shot his record that stands to this day, he had back-to-back Eagles on the previous Wednesday, is it any wonder he got the name "The Eagle Man".
