• 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 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.

We are all looking forward to the new season (when the rain stops) which promises to be a great one particularly with the advent of 33 new members to date. Looking forward to the captains drive in and scrambling around the course where we hope to meet new members and make you feel welcome.

Yours Sincerely
