We will be updating this page with stories from around the club including items such as course development, fund raising and any other events which our members may not have heard about around the club!
Just to update you all on whats going on in the club in the last few weeks. As you are aware our 50/50 draw is up and running. So far it has proved to be a great success and I would encourage all members to continue to support this.
The new 17th green is being progressed nicely and is now seeded. From now on its just a matter of sitting back and letting nature take its course. Who knows, we might even get a chance to play on it before the Summer is out!
As some of you may have noticed we have bene running lessons on Friday evenings. These have proven to be a great success with huge numbers turning out for our first two weeks. There are another two weeks left so feel free to come along and maybe pick up a few tips.
As most of you will have seen we are currently building a new 17th green behind the existing one. The works have started and the green is almost ready to be seeded. The course committee hope to have the green playable before the year is out and new green should improve the 17th hole considerably. The works shouldn't affect play prior to opening although it does make it easier to roll out of bounds now that the infamous fence has been removed!
Other news this week is that our first 50/50 draw has taken place on Wednesday. The lucky winner of the jackpot is Michael O'Connor who receives the tidy amount of €665. The committee wants to thank everyone who has supported this initiative and a special word of thanks to the fundraising committee for all their hard work in setting up the draw.
The committee and in particular the course committee have prepared a presentation for our members outlining works needing to be carried out on the course in order to improve its playability throughout the year. The immediate works will include drainage on the 11th fairway, sanding of the greens, fringes and teeboxes. Some of the major works which are stillin discussion include extending the 17th fairway, removing trees around the 3rd and 15th teeboxes. These works are still being discussed by the committee and plans are yet to be finalised. Please take time to read a message from the committee regarding these works below
