ELMGREEN G C V BEAVERSTOWN G C
Elmgreen won their 2nd Round match against Beaverstown G C in The O’Grady Cup by 3 1/2 to 1 1/2. Well done to everyone involved.
Elmgreen will play Donabate on the 9th June @ 15.30 in the 2nd Round of the Best Cup.
Elmgreen have 3 Matches away, and 2 Matches at Home.
Tee Off Time is 15.30. Good Luck to all taking part.
Your support would be welcome on the day.
Starting from this Sunday (28th May) and going forward (Sunday only competitions singles events) we will be having nearest the pin on the 17th hole.
Entry fee is of course optional @ €1 (winner takes all in the shape of a voucher like the twos).
The first group out on Sunday will take with them, measuring tape, sign and sheet for recording nearest the pin. The last group will retrieve all items and return them to the pro shop as soon as their round is completed.
This should keep the interest going even if your round of Golf has not gone as planned on the day.
We will be hosting a Mixed Team Event for Members of Elmgreen Golf Club on Easter Monday, April 17th. This is a mixed event and there must be at least one man or woman on each team. BRS booking for this event is live and you can reserve your tee time by clicking here. More information about the format for the competition will be available early next week.
