Even though our course and greens are drying out pitch marks are still a problem on the course at the moment so we are reminding members and visitors please repair the mark from your ball and if there are others marks on the green please repair those as well just to keep the greens in perfect conditions for everyone.
Work is still continuing on course upgrades with hedges been trimmed and new paths been put in and the old ones been reinstated with new filling. In the coming weeks new coloured flags will be put on all greens. Well done to course management and the green keeping staff for their continued hard work.

MARKING OF CARDS
Golf Ireland guidelines have stated that all 3 handicaps must be recorded on cards for competition and casual rounds for handicap purposes. To avoid disqualification you must record your h/cap index, playing h/cap and most importantly the course h/cap, all of these are available on the Golf Ireland app and also on screen when you log in for competitions. It is also important not to enter a zero for stableford competitions as it interferes with standard scratch, if you blank a hole just record the shots as the computer will adjust accordingly. All scores must be recorded by the marker and signed in agreement with the player before being returned no later than 30mins after you finish your round.
NEW MEMBER DEALS
Ladies, if you had ever thought of taking up golf, now is the time to do it, our Lady Captain Isobel and any committee member would be delighted to take out potential members and showcase our beautiful course and unrivalled scenery!! There are great deals on offer for new members and beginners including tuition, please contact our Director of Golf Irene or Brian in the kiosk on 058 44055 for more information.
