AUTUMN OPEN WEEK 4TH – 15TH SEPTEMBER 2019

Our popular annual Autumn Open Week was a great success which was boosted by beautiful weather all week. We couldn’t have asked for better golf conditions. Thank you to everyone that played and supported our Open Week, both Members and Visitors.

It was a busy week also with several societies and we also hosted the Ladies Coastal Alliance.

We wish to thank all our Open Week sponsors who most generously sponsored our competitions and whose support we gratefully appreciate.

To add to the atmosphere both Junior Captains Prizes (girls and boys) were taking place for our terrific young golfers – always a pleasure to watch them and see their enthusiasm.

In addition to the above there were a few Dublin supporters about who looked “a little worse for wear”!!!

The numbers drawn were 5, 15, 18 and 20. There was no winner of the Jackpot which increases to €5,700 next week. There was four winners of our Match 3s – Mary Ashe, Lorraine Troy, John Reynolds and Liam Fitzgerald – they each win €25. Congratulations to each of them.
