The Club wishes to offer its sincerest condolence to Tony Walsh and family on the death of his father John.  May he rest in peace.

Well done to Pat Kiely winner of the above competition who beat Nicky Dee in the final.



Congratulants to John White and Nicky Dee who beat Ned O’Conor and Ivan O’Conor in the final, I believe it was a great match.



The final pairings have now been made in this competition with the final to be played by October 18th 202.  Through to the final is Nicholas Power and Ruth Hannigan v Nicky Dee and Isobel Kirwan, best of luck to all involved.

Throughout the year we have asked members and visitors to repair pitch marks on the greens which has been a great success now we are  asking that the same attention is given to the bunkers please to make sure to rake bunkers when you are finished in them it’s very annoying to arrive to a bunker with your ball in someone’s foot print which hasn’t been raked also please refrain from using them as litter  bins we have got a number of water bottles in the bunkers over the last while, thank you for help on this matter.



From 31st March 2022 an automated process will be put in place to apply an automatic penalty score if a score is pre-registered but not submitted. This rule applies to both General Play and official Competitions.
The player is now totally responsible for submitting their score once it has been pre-registered. If they fail to do so without providing the committee with a valid reason, an automated penalty score will be applied.
Mandatory Handicap on Scorecards.
From 31st March 2022, Golf Ireland requires that the player’s Handicap Index is verified before playing and is the required handicap on a scorecard.
