Our new season of the alliance started last Thursday with Dungarvan hosting the first game, unfortunately we had no one feature but it was a very enjoyable day and thanks to Maria and Marianne for organising the event. If you are new to the club this is a great way of playing other courses for a nominal fee of €10 per outing plus a yearly registration fee of €15.
25th Anniversary Celebrations
A very prestigious occasion is being marked in our club on Sunday 22nd September 2019 when we celebrate 25years of fun, friendships and of course golf!! To mark the occasion, we have invited all our past officers and members to partake in the celebrations, we look forward to meeting you all again!! Please note all activities as stated in men’s notes, and we would be honoured if you would wear your club jacket.
Our Winter League 10 hole competition will be starting on Mon 28th Oct, draw sheet is now posted in kiosk with conditions of play, this year there will be a change to the original format which will be easier and should attract more members.. Please add your name and note conditions!!
Card Rota System
We are currently looking for volunteers to help with competition results, a knowledge of computers is an advantage but not essential as tuition will be given, also being a committee member is not a requirement. Please forward your name to Lady Captain or any committee member, it would be much appreciated!!
