Dial One
The writing was on the wall last weekend.  We all acknowledged on Sunday evening when departing from the Clubhouse after an enjoyable game of golf, that the likelihood, considering the Metrology Forecast,  was we would not gather for some time.  Jack Frost arrived intent to stay a full week and then depart abruptly ahead of Isha’s arrival.  Jack and Isha possibly never played golf.

They don’t understand the anxiety they create for Course Staff, Catering team,  ProShop personnel and all golfers.

However, sense and sensibility must reign. There will be better days.

Soon, the worry will be hard ground from drought and adequate or inadequate applications of sunscreen cream.

Focus must turn to Club and Interclub Competitions.   Preparations are underway and Entries submitted to Golf Ireland.

Team Managers are requesting Members to express interest and join Panels for the myriad of competition categories.

Spring is 10 days away and Summer will quickly follow.   Fourteen to sixteen hours of bright daylight to look forward to.

Let us sharpen skills , use the Driving Range, sign up for Panel(s) and embrace the joy that will be a game of golf on 18 Holes.

Soon, we will Dial One and the voice will announce ‘Course Open’.
