March Newsletter

Dear Members

The 2018 season is now under way and we will try to formally mark this opening with our ceremonial Captains’ drive-in at some point in the coming weeks, however we are now in the season and we have our first interclub matches around the corner.

Interclub Updates :

Our first interclub match of the year will take place on Sunday 25th March, from 13:30, when we take on Baltinglass in the ‘All Ireland Fourball’  

This will be followed by the Irish Mixed Foursomes where we take on Lisheen Springs on Sunday 8th April at 13:00.

Your support for the interclub teams is very much appreciated.

Club Match Play

Due to the recent weather the deadline for entry for the 3 club matchplay events has been extended until Monday 19th March (this weekend). As a reminder the draw sheets are posted on the noticeboard in the pro-shop. If you are unable to visit the resort this weekend and have not put your name(s) down already please email me no later than Monday. The draw will take place on Tuesday therefore no late entries will be considered.

Safeguarding Policy

The club committee on behalf of the member have agreed in March 2018 to adopt the new safeguarding policy of the GUI and has appointed Vice Captain, Peter Pedersen to serve as Designate Liaison Person, Junior Convenor and Club Children’s officer pending further training courses and vetting, that will take place in due course. The committee will adapt the GUI policy for our club and later this year will need to copper fasten this acceptance by passing of the motion to formally include this commitment in our constitution at the AGM in November.  More information to follow. If you have any questions on the safeguarding policy please contact Peter.

Kind regards,

Ian O'Shaughnessy

Hon. Secretary
