Dave O’ Rourke – Trophy – May 7th – Strokes (G O Y)

Dave was a member of Elmgreen Golf Club for a number of years and

was one of the most active members of the committee.

His enthusiasm and dedication to the Club was legendary.

Sadly Dave passed away in August 2009 after an short illness.

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.

 

Merging of Class 3 and 4 Numbers

 

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.
