Presentation of prizes took place immediately afterwards in the clubhouse. A huge thanks to Marcella McGovern and Ann Moloney who ran the competition so efficiently and made it such fun for our Get into Golf ladies. David Hayes our PGA professional is always so helpful when we are organising these events and even called round on Sunday to see how things were going. Many thanks David.
GET INTO GOLF 2021 REFRESHER LESSONS
These came to a close last Wednesday. Judging by the feedback from the ladies they were a huge success meaning far more to them now having been out on the course over the past two months. David Hayes assures me that there are a lot of promising golfers among them. We look forward to working with them and integrating them into our fine club.
Players can take relief, as follows:1. When your ball is on a closely mown area – Lift, clean and place within 6 inches, no nearer the hole.2. No relief if your ball lies in the rough – Play the ball as it lies.
