With some decent weather and hard work, the course is returning to a healthier condition. Scholar and the lads managed to get the rough cut as well as treating the greens. The South East Junior Alliance were in town and were highly complementary of our facility and with decent weather the course will continue to improve. Speaking with Course Convenor Tom Considine, a huge sanding and draining operation is scheduled for March and this can only help the course. 

The Gents Spring League continues with Benny Kiely still leading the way. Members are encouraged to enter as many cards as possible to qualify for the Grand finale. Again, we had a superb turnout for our Fun Friday Foursomes with Colette & John continuing their fine work.
