Dear Members,

Wednesday Social Scramble

Despite the threatening weather in the afternoon, which thankfully never materialised, we had a good turn out of golfers for this evening's Scramble.

The best net score so far this Summer was 25.8 but tonight this was surpassed with an excellent score of 25.0 by Ciaran Curley and Catherine Hayes. This is now the new net target. As they were second last week an additional 0.5 was added to their score and 25.5 got them into second place.

You have often heard the phrase in GAA circles that someone won by the "narrowest of margins" and that was certainly the case this evening with Frank Lewis and Ciaran Lambe bringing home a great winning score of 25.4. Well done to all of them.

Blues Trophy

Next weekend we play for the coveted Blues Trophy from the back stakes. As in previous years a one-off Drop Zone will be created just short of the 9th fairway for players who do not successfully make it across the lake from the Blue tee. If you are unable to locate your ball after your tee shot on this hole you can proceed to play your third shot from this Drop Zone.

In addition a new Drop Zone has been created just in front of the Ladies Teebox on the 6th hole for any player who hits their ball into the water hazard short of the green. From Saturday onwards this will become a permanent feature of the course.

Email Address

Unfortunately this email address appears to have been "hacked" and despite my best attempts including two changes of passwords - the disruption continues. My apologies to any member who has been inconvenienced by this. Accordingly, I have decided that the best option is to close it down. So this is the last email you will get from and if any are received from that address in future they will not be from me. I hope to have a new email address up and running very soon.
