GET INTO GOLF 2021
We are now almost halfway through the golf lessons with David Hayes. The ladies are very enthusiastic and enjoying the fun. David tells me we have some very promising ladies in the group. The next stage will be on-course activities with our lady members who will introduce them to our fine golf course. This will start on Tues Aug 3 for one hour from 7-8 pm for four weeks. We feel honoured that so many ladies decided to come to our golf club.

GET INTO GOLF WINTER/SUMMER LEAGUE
This is on-going and will cease at the end of August. Many thanks to Anne Heneberry and Marcella McGovern for taking on the organisation of this league and for doing it so efficiently.
At the moment Roisin Briggs’ team of Micheal Marrinan, Breid Scanlon and Phyllis Davis are in the lead with Jim O’Mahony’s team of Cathie Mannix, Helen O’ Neill and Elizabeth Kelly lying second. It is still all to play for, so get your nine holes played and return your cards to the relevant locker rooms. Each card returned (regardless of score) earns a point for your team!
