was one of the most active members of the committee.
His enthusiasm and dedication to the Club was legendary.

This Competition takes place every year around this time in Dave’s memory.
The Dave O’ Rourke Competition is regarded as one of our Major Competitions in the Golfing year.
This is a stroke play Competition, and is included in the Golfer of the year.
Lets hope for a great turn out in memory of Dave.

Following a review of competitions by the competitions committee in relation to, the winter of 2016
(12-14 hole competitions),
and also competitions played year to date (2017), there is an anomaly in terms of numbers per class.
Currently there are on average over thirty players in class 2 but only 10-15 in class 4.
(we have on occasion had less then 10 players in class 4)
As the handicap cuts for class 3/4 are the same the fairest solution to this is to merge classes 3/4
and increase prizes accordingly.
The new Breakdown will be:
Overall winner €50 voucher
Class 1 winner (1-12) €40 Voucher
Class 2 winner (12-18) €40 Voucher
Class 3/4 merged (19-28) €40 Voucher
This merger will be implemented this Sunday 30th April.
There will be no changes to the prize structure on Wednesday’s as it is the one division only in terms of prizes.
Elmgreen narrowly beaten
Hard luck to our metropolitan Cup team narrowly going down 5 – 4 against Castlewarden
Saturday (April 22nd).
The Matches were halved in Castlewarden 2-2.
Elmgreen were beaten 3-2 at home, loosing the last match on the 18th.
Thanks to Frank and the players for their effort and good luck to Castlewarden in the next round.
