Weekly 9 Hole Open Competition

Our weekly 9 hole competition continues to draw a steady entry from Monday to Friday each week. Members and visitors are welcome and the shortened course has made the competition more enjoyable.  Here is an opportunity to sharpen up your game for the upcoming Winter League and it only takes under 2 hours to play the 9 holes.

 

Winter League 2019

Entry sheets for our upcoming Winter League are now posted on the notice board in the hallway.  The competition will start as a 16 hole stableford event with the out of play holes being rotated with each round.  Please put your name up as soon as possible as we are hoping to start the league around mid November.  If any member has a bit of spare time we would welcome some help especially with sorting cards on Saturdays and Sundays during the league.

 

South East Junior Alliance

Well done to Tommy Butler who carded a magnificent 41 points to win first prize in the opening alliance outing at Clonmel.  Kilkenny host the alliance on Sunday 14th October and Callan is the venue on Sunday 28th October.  Members wishing to play in the South East Junior alliance should contact Phil Kinsella.

 

Bunkers and Pitch Marks

It has taken a lot of time and money but the renovation work on the bunkers is now complete.  Visitors continue to compliment us on the magnificent work and the excellent condition of our bunkers.  We ask members and visitors to rake bunkers properly (don’t forget the footprints), and even if you’re not in it and it needs attention please feel free to rake it.  Like our bunkers, our greens are maintained in excellent condition.  Unfortunately some members are not repairing pitch marks.  We earnestly request you to repair your pitch marks and if you see another pitch mark repair it too.  We are fortunate to have a course staff and volunteers who put a lot of time and effort into maintaining the course to the highest standards.  Please do your bit to show your appreciation of their efforts.

 

End of Year Scramble and Presentation of Prizes

Sunday 11th November is the date for our end of year scramble.  This will be a 3 person event commencing at 1.30 pm.  Following the scramble we will have the presentation of prizes for all Club matchplay competitions and prizes for the Al Eile Final.  

 

Past Captains and Presidents Dinner

This annual event is scheduled for Friday 16th November.  A 13 hole singles stableford competition will be held at 1.30, and this will be followed by dinner in the clubhouse.  Committee members are also welcome to attend, and complimentary tickets will be issued to all team managers within the next two weeks.
