General Date protection Regulations (GDPR)

These new regulations came into effect on Friday last and all companies and clubs are obliged to carry out these regulations with immediate effect. What this means to members is that the kiosk now needs your permission to give out your phone numbers to other members of to the GUI or to opposing team managers. That means that if you are to play someone in a match we cannot release that person’s phone number for you to contact him unless he has given us permission. The same applies to emails and as nearly all emails contain some information which could be construed as marketing, again it is necessary for us to get permission to send you emails. Forms are available in the kiosk for members to sign and the sooner you sign it the sooner we can start sending you emails again.


Captain’s Skins

Chef Maurice (pronounced Mor eece) and his co-chef Josephine will be on duty on Wednesday 30th May to provide much needed snacks to the golfers playing in the Captain’s Skins. The skins commence from 4.30 onwards and will finish at 7.15 p.m. with the final timed for 8.15 p.m. Entry is €2 with re-entry priced at €1. As always patrons will get a glass of wine to wash down the delicious burgers.
