Clement Hehir and Tom Barrett, representing Audi Cork, saw off the challenge of 41 teams to claim victory at this year’s Audi quattro Cup final held in Mount Juliet Golf Club, on Wednesday, 28th August.
Hehir and Barrett, both from Kilmallock, County Limerick and playing out of Charleville Golf Club, won the 23rd hosting of the prestigious Audi quattro Cup golf competition by a single point with a score of 44 points. The duo narrowly defeated the Audi Naas pairing of Arthur Ryan and John Kelly (2nd Place) who finished the competition with a total of 43 points, and John Conniffe and John Kelly (3rd place), representing Audi Athlone, who carded 42 points.
Hehir, with a handicap of 20, and Barrett, playing off 16, will now go forward to represent Ireland in the world final of the Audi quattro Cup which will be played at Trump National Golf Course, Los Angeles in early October.
2013 saw nearly 700 players, half of whom were Audi drivers, compete in seven regional heats between May and July. These heats were played out on some of Ireland’s most prestigious golf courses including The K Club, Fota Island, Rosses Point, concluding with the National final teeing-up in the spectacular Mount Juliet Golf Club, Kilkenny.
Christian Gussen, managing director of Audi Ireland commented: “This country has such a strong tradition in golf at amateur and professional level and the competition was fierce this year. We are delighted to reward our loyal customers by affording them the opportunity to play some of the most prestigious golf courses throughout Ireland in the Audi quattro Cup and to be in with a chance to represent Ireland in the United States later this year.
“Almost 85,000 golfers will play in 800 tournaments all over the globe in the 2013 Audi quattro Cup. This superb competition has come a long way since German Audi dealers organised an event for 6,000 golfers playing 51 tournaments back in 1991.”

Congratulations to DLR Chamber on a wonderful day. Druid’s Glen was glorious with perfect weather. The food break by Hick’s in between the 9th and 10th was really welcome. They even supplied me with a vegetarian option. I was really happy with the driver I had bought the previous day in McGuirks Golf.
The highlight of my round was a 3 on the par 3 17th – 168 yds over water onto an island green. Thanks to Martin Toner for his coaching on the run up to the event.

Last month the Crowe family welcomed tourism partners, tour operators, members of the local corporate sector, golf specialists and media representatives to their inaugural Corporate & Golf Event in a new initiative to attract golf and corporate business to this renowned Tipperary family owned resort.
More than 70 guests participated in this event, enjoying a challenging round of golf on what is now ranked one of the top 50 golf courses in Ireland. Course designer Philip Walton played with each team on the 6th hole sharing his expertise. He played the hole seventeen times and scored 8 birdies, 8 pars and 1 bogie over the course of the day. The teams couldn’t say enough about the terrific condition of this mature course despite one of the heaviest downpours the night before, a true test for any golf course.
