Refresher Golf Lessons (Get into Golf)
There was such a demand for the lessons that David Hayes our PGA Professional has opted to divide the group in three and do one lesson on Tuesday and two lessons on Wednesday evening for two consecutive weeks. He started last Tuesday and the feedback is very positive from the ladies. We are very lucky to have David Hayes on hand to help with our beginners and promote the golf.  He is also very positive about the  Get into Golf programme.

Get into Golf 2022
There is a special time slot each Tuesday evening for these ladies. To improve your golf you need to come out and play. So book your place and come and join the other ladies.

Get into Golf Scramble
We had a large entry for our second Get into Golf  Scramble last Sunday. There was great excitement as the teams gathered and then headed out on the golf course. The competition was palpable between the teams and the scoring was very close. The clubhouse was buzzing later as they gathered to discuss their golf while awaiting the results.

Second: Richard Cosgrave, Olga O’Connor, Niamh Hickey and Karla Twomey 23 1/2
