Due to the recent, and persistent, inclement weather it has been decided to put the qualifying for the Gents Handicap Matchplay back by 1 week. The qualifiers will now take place on Sat 14th and Sun 15th April.
There will be a normal Gents Singles Stableford taking place on both Sat 7th and Sun 8th April instead.
A Special General Meeting of the Club will be held in the clubhouse on Wednesday 18th April 2018 at 8.00pm for the purpose of considering alterations to the 17th hole as displayed on club notice board as of 5th April 2018.

I am delighted to announce that we will be commencing a Yoga For golfers course on Monday 5th February in the clubhouse. The course will run for six consecutive weeks and take place at 7-8pm every Monday night. Michelle Lawless is a certified instructor and she will be running the classes. I will be in attendance myself and I am a TPI (Titleist Performance institute) certified instructor and will be showing you all some golf related stretches each night towards the end of each session.
The cost of each class is €15 each and depending on numbers a discount maybe possible when you sign up for the 6 classes. This is very much a fun evening where you dress in a tracksuit and runners (or some loose comfy clothing!). You simply come along no matter what age shape or size you are and our very friendly instructor Michelle will provide a yoga mat for everyone and will show you some stretches that will really help you loosen up and will ultimately help with your golf swing.
Places will be filled on a first come first served basis and is open to male and female members only. There will be a limit numbers obviously so please let me know if you are interested by contacting me on 014580522 in the shop, or you can text me directly on 0878222902 or you can email me on [email protected] so do not reply directly to this email please!
