The draw for the above
will take place on Sunday May14th.A reminder for players who have yet to
gain a handicap and wish to participate in this competition is that you must
have 3 cards entered to secure your handicap in advance of your match being
played. The round 1 deadline is set for May 29th.The guys will update
the membership by WhatsApp, blog& the notice board
There is a new Club website developed by
the owners on the horizon which is likely to go live in May which will also
assist us in centralising the messaging in time.
The Committee are continuously reviewing with
the course how we best manage Sunday Morning Golf.We remind you to book well
inadvance to secure your booking on Sundays and we are really committed to
getting increased activity on Sunday’s. The more activity we get on Sundays
will increase our capacity for change. Your feedback and suggestions are
Codes of Ethics. The committee are
reviewing a set of rules around the use of Whatsapp which will be shared with
all members after our next meeting.
The committee are also working on developing a clubcode
of conduct for both on and off the course
FundraiserThe committee plan to have a
singular fundraiser this year.It will take the form of a raffle and we will be
asking all members to try and sell 4 tickets. The raffle will be on presidents
night (our only social of the year).More details to follow and tickets will go
on sale in June
The Committee have adopted Golf Irelands
directives in that a member is not entitled to win the top prize on the
captains and presidents day if they have not submitted 20 qualifying cards and
have a full GUI Golf Handicap.The good news is however, that you will qualify
to win one of the up to 20 other prizes on each day.
Communication with Committee
If you have an issue or
recommendation, we respectfully ask that you send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and
it will be addressed at or prior to the next committee meeting and responded to.
We welcome feedback through this medium. The Whatsapp forum was never designed
to tackle any issues with sensitivities attached so please use it for
messaging, receiving club info and securing playing partners as required.
Keeping you informed.
