Mens club competitions will resume on bank holiday Monday June 7th with an 18 hole stableford competition off the white markers. Plans are being finalized for a midweek 9-hole qualifier and the regular weekend gents competitions. Some members have been asking why we didn’t

The Queen of the 9 hole competition was well subscribed, taking place in favourable conditions, and the winner on the day was Mary Herlihy with 20 points after a countback (back6). Congratulations to Mary and everybody who took part

Upcoming events was another headline on the weekly template. Over the past eighteen months or so a lot of changes have taken place that may change the way we live our lives in
