Many thanks to everyone who played in our competitions over 2018 and to the people who make each Wednesday so special for us – Tom, Chris, Kevin and Cassie in the bar- David and Grace in the Pro-Shop – Karen and Jimmy in the Office and Scholar and his staff on the course. They are all stars and are much appreciated. If you are interested in social golf and a chat join us any Wednesday.


This fun event lived up to its title with a large number of golfers participating. Yet again the men were in the majority as the morning dawned bright and clear on Dec 21 (the shortest day of the year!!) They created a great atmosphere in the club house later as they enjoyed the fresh sandwiches and mince pies prepared by Tom and his staff. Much appreciated by all.

RESULTS First : Jack Elstead and Marcella McGovern Second : Sam Mc Connell and Anne Hennebry Third : Pat Power and Ann Moloney Fourth : Declan Walsh and Ian Gourlay Fifth : Martin Landers and Kate Morrissey
