The weather played havoc with our competitions this week. Our Seniors managed to play on Monday and despite snow showers and bitterly low temperatures, our ladies displayed their mettle on Tuesday completing their competition. Unfortunately, we had closures and late openings for the rest of the week but hopefully the cold snap is behind us. The David Hayes sponsored Spring League continues with Benny Kiely setting the early pace after two rounds. But it is all to play for so get out and get your 5 cards in.

Still much discussion about the Rules changes and as always, our resident PGA Professional David is on hand to answer any queries. One great question last week regarding attending the flagstick. As you know you can putt with the flag in or out, but you can also ask for the flag to be attended. If you have any questions, drop into David. As always, the course committee remind you of proper course etiquette. Please repair pitch marks and replace divots. Due to weather and heavy traffic, the course can be easily damaged, so please do your but and repair the course in the correct manner unlike Sergio Garcia who tried to remodel a few greens in the incorrect manner.

Life gurus maintain there are two things that don’t lie, kids and Lycra! That theory will be put to the test this Tuesday night as some of the Men’s Club embark on a 5 – week Pilates course. I’m sure there will be some interesting sights! Best of Luck Lads!

On a sad note, the club offers its sincerest condolences to club members, Peggy and John O’Brien on the tragic passing of their daughter Trish. We also console with Marie Fives on the recent passing of her father. A raibh sibh go anam.
