Starting May 28th – Nearest The Pin – 17th Hole

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.

2017 Captain’s Letter

It is with pride and pleasure I take on the role of Captain for 2017. It was wonderful to see a great turnout on Sunday 26th February and the weather was kind to us.

It was a great pleasure to play with Nora Kinsella Ladies Captain – Dolores Brady Ladies President and my friend John Sheeran on the day.

A big thank you to our Committee for their support and help,

To Carr Golf for providing the food and refreshments on the day

To Tony and the staff of Lime Tree Caterers for the lovely spread,

To Dermott and the Greenkeeping Staff for their hard work in presenting the course in great condition especially at this time of the year.

To my good friend Colin Maybin for the wonderful mode of transport Myself and Nora arrived to the 1st tee in style ‘A Big Thank you’

From your kind donations my nominated charities are:

  1. Brother Kevin Crowley, The Capuchin Day Centre.
  2. Cystic Fibrosis (Malin 2 Mizen Cycle which takes place this May) in memory of Triona Priestley a local girl who passed away in April 2014.

I wish you all Good Friendship, Good Golf, and enjoyment for the year ahead
