Weekly 9 Hole Open Competition

We had a great response to this new event which started on Monday 1st October.  The nine hole competition continues this week and players can play any day from Monday to Friday inclusive.  A short course off yellow markers on the back 9 has met with great approval, so if you fancy a relaxing 9 holes why not give it a go this week.  Subject to entries there will be prizes for 3 categories.

 

Irish Open 2019.

Next year’s Irish Open will be played at Lahinch Golf Club from Thursday 4th to Sunday 6th July.  Speaking on WLR during the week Paul McGinley said he would very much like to see Seamus Power in the field.  He was loud in his praise of Seamus at the Rio Olympics and added that it was great to have somebody who was so proud of his Irish heritage representing his country.  With a busy schedule on the PGA tour Seamus may have difficulties in making the event but have no doubt he will make every effort to play at Lahinch in the Irish Open. Watch this space.
