COVID LEAGUE UPDATE

After 3 rounds played in the Covid league, there is very little between the top 4 teams, leading to a hugely exciting next round.  Team 2 (Cathie O’Mahony) are still in the lead, with team 7 (Maisie Breen) moving into second place, but coming up fast in joint 3 place is team 3 (Mary Power) and team 5 (Bridget Aherne).  There are only 20 points separating these top 4 teams so every entry counts towards the next round.  Two of the teams; numbers 3 and 7 had points from each member of the team as they all submitted at least one card last month so its vitally important for everyone to try and return the maximum of 6 cards, no matter how low the score may appear.

We have just 2 more rounds so get out and enjoy, and don’t forget to play off your ‘playing handicap (95%)’ not your course handicap. Remember, your team needs you.

VOLUNTEERS – COURSE WORK

Volunteer work on the course continues at 10.00am on Wednesday 7th at 10.00am. We have had a great turn out for the last few weeks, thanks to all who have given their time. If you have a petrol or battery powered hedge trimmer please bring it along to trim around some of the perimeter tee boxes. If not, bring a shovel to fill some potholes on the paths.
