Find the Golf Ball

All members are asked to support the ‘Find the Golf Ball’ weekly fundraiser.   Envelopes are available in the Bar and Restaurant and in the Pro Shop.  Your weekly €2 is very valuable to build funds for continuous improvement of golf facilities and equipment. The envelope drawn on Saturday 4th February was John Morrissey and his number was 7. It was not a winner but he still receives €20. The next draw will take place on Saturday 4th of February.

Caution please

The ground is still soft and those using Buggies are requested to drive on pathways or on the rough grass areas.  Please refrain from driving through the fairways and up on the collars of the greens.   Repair of divots and pitch marks is a must.  Care and respect for the course at all times is part of the game of golf and everyone will benefit from good grass areas.
