We presently have all teams filled with a few names on the standby list should substitutes be required. To allow a little more time to compile scores before the weekly notes on a Monday, the 1st week will start on Saturday 27th October-Sunday 28th October & Monday 29th October to Friday 2nd November

The final or 15th week will finish on Friday 8th February,2019 after which the match play rounds will commence.

As last year, the 10 best cards to count from 11 out of 14 players, which can be played any day of the week and as many times as you want. As history dictates, the teams and players who play the most rounds generally come out on top…so the moral of the story is the more you play the better chance you have!!

Entry fee is once again €25 which all goes to the prizes and the daily competition fee is €7 for the first 10 rounds and €5 thereafter.


To date we haven’t secured a sponsor for this year’s League as the Premium Butcher are bowing out this year. For the last number of years the Premium Butcher/Dawn Meats have being invaluable sponsors to the Winter League and our club and members are hugely appreciative of their contributions in the past and wish to thank them sincerely for supporting past Winter leagues.


As mentioned last week, the Ladies club run only a 10 hole winter league but to facilitate ladies who would like to play 18 holes over the winter (in addition to their 10 holes WL), each of our teams includes one lady member also. The same rules applies as the men, best 10 cards etc . In the match play section the ladies would play each other. This means that this year we’ll have 7 teams of 14, giving us 98 participants, the highest in a good few years. In an age of merging Golfing Unions between the GUI & ILGU we see this a step forward in bringing our already close Mens & Ladies clubs that bit closer again.

The full rules on display in the kiosk


Men’s Club AGM

The Annual General Meeting of the Men’s Club will be held on Monday 5th November at 8.00 p.m. at Goldcoast Golf Hotel.

This year due to a number of retirees we have a number of positions vacant.

All club members are encouraged to think about getting people to fill these positions. If anyone would like to contact the Kiosk, more information can be given regarding the vacant positions. A little work is required but we feel the benefits of being involved and having a say in the running of the club far outweigh the costs of affording a little time to the club. The nomination sheet is posted in the kiosk.
