Wednesday Evening Summer Scrambles

Dear Member


The Summer Social Scrambles for 2018 start on WEDNESDAY 6 JUNE and will be held each Wednesday through to Wednesday 22 August.


The Committee is pleased that these events are being sponsored for the Club by Profile Events - thanks to Derek Yeates.

The Scrambles will tee off each Wednesday evening between 4 and 6pm. The format will be Two Person (any combination) 9 Hole Scramble Gross Strokes reduced by one-fifth of the team's combined handicap. Entry fee is €2. The golf will be followed by the presentation of prizes in the Members Bar.

If you have a partner arranged in advance that will be fine. For those who are flying 'solo' we will do our best to arrange a partner for you on the evening.

Looking forward to seeing as many members as possible on Wednesday 6 June and on subsequent Wednesday evenings during the Summer.

Captain's Drive-In Postponment

Dear Members,

Despite the best efforts of David and his team the course will be closed for the weekend.

Unfortunately the weather has won the battle and therefore the Captains’ Drive in will be cancelled again this weekend. As there is no suitable date remaining, it is unlikely that a specific drive-in scramble event will now occur this year but we will certainly organize a date to tee-off and launch the season.

I have it on a good authority that our captains were confident of a combined 500 yards off the ceremonial tee box but alas that will have to wait!

Kind regards,

Ian O'Shaughnessy

Hon. Secretary
