Riverdale, Co. Tipperary, Ireland Ireland

Nenagh is the county town of North Tipperary in Ireland. With a recorded population of 7,995, Nenagh is today a busy commercial town and is governed by Nenagh Town Council. The largest town in North Tipperary, it lies to the west of the Nenagh River. The Silvermine Mountain range lies to the south of the town, with the highest peak being Keeper Hill. The Silvermines have been intermittently mined for silver and base metals for over seven hundred years.

Riverdale Pitch and Putt Course is located on the old Birr road, a kilometre from the town centre. It's an 18 Hole Championship Pitch and Putt Course in a natural parkland setting with the Nenagh River on one side flowing down to the Shannon. The river empties into Lough Derg at Dromineer, 10 kilometres to the north-west, a popular centre for sailing and other water sports. Riverdale caters for everybody from the novice to the enthusiast. Clubs are available for rent. The course features a wide variety of shot, uphill, downhill and sidehill. A number of holes skirt the river.

Riverdale Pitch and Putt has been in existence for 40 years, and has hosted Munster Strokeplay and Matchplay Championships. The Annual Scratch Cup provides a great day of entertainment. Past winners of this event include the famous Mick Forrest and the sadly missed local hero Johnny Shoer Snr. (RIP). Greenkeepers John Nagle, Arthur Mitchell and Martin Reddan maintain the course in optimum condition. Club legend Sean Minogue is Honorary Auditor of PPUI in addition to being an outstanding player.
