Old and New Friends!
We welcome back our friendly fox to the course spotted near the 9th tee box by Colman Doyle
Also Mother duck and her little ones as they cross the 10th fairway… so cute. Let’s hope Mr Fox doesn’t meet them!
There will be a Golf Taster evening on Monday 9th May in the club, so if you know of anyone who may be interested in this please give the name to the office.
There are a number of loose trolleys in the trolley shed, and as the trolley shed is for authorised users only, we ask that if you own one of these to remove it. The loose trolleys will be removed by 6th May if they are not claimed.
We would like to remind you that if you have to take your name off the time sheet for any reason, to please contact your intended playing partners as a matter of courtesy and allow them to organise markers.
A reminder also, to observe the Pace of Play Policy for the comfort of all players on the course.
We will start line marking of the car park this Friday 29th April, and as there are still some buggies in the car park we will need them removed to facilitate this work. If you own one of these buggies, could you please either move it or collect it.
James and the Greenkeeping staff are doing a terrific job in maintaining the course, and you will all agree that it looks really great at the moment. Why not help to keep it that way by replacing and repairing your divots on the fairways and fixing your pitch marks on the greens. The bunkers must be raked after use…… you all know what it’s like for your ball to land in a big footprint in the sand!!!!
Congratulations to all our Junior and not so Junior members who recently took part in the Gorey Musical “The Sound of Music”. A special mention to 2021 Junior Captain Taylor Dench who received the Michael Doran Best Newcomer Award.
