The more activity we get on Sundays will increase our capacity for change. Your feedback and suggestions are welcome.

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.
