Care of the Course

All players should avoid causing damage to the course (e.g. removing divots) when taking practice swings.
Through the green a player should ensure that any turf cut or displaced is replaced at once and pressed down.
Players should ensure that any damage to the putting green made by the ball is carefully
repaired. In addition, damage caused to the putting green by golf shoe spikes should be repaired on completion of the hole. In putting down the flagstick players should ensure that no damage is done to the putting green. Players should not cause damage to the green either by standing too close to the golf hole, handling the flagstick or removing the ball from the hole.
Before leaving a bunker, a player should carefully fill up and smooth over all holes and footprints made by him or her.

Log on to the Club website for regular updates throughout the year. Many thanks to Paddy Bates for his continued management of the website.

Club Lotto:

Funds from the Club Lotto are earmarked for works that will improve the comfort and safety of our Members and Visitors, while also greatly enhancing the aesthetics and visual appearance of our facilities. To date, the balcony flooring has been completely replaced using Lotto funds and the next job to be tackled will be the balcony surround. All support and promotion for the draw is greatly appreciated. Many thanks to Tom Hainsworth and his team for the initial setting up of the Lotto in 2010 and its ongoing administration.

New Members:

Falling Membership numbers has been of concern over the past few years and the Club actively works to redress this situation. Members are encouraged to promote the Club to potential new applicants as a great place to join, where one can play enjoyable golf in friendly surroundings, on a course that has been rated by Kevin Markham (2009) in the Top 10 value for money golf courses in Ireland and the best 14th hole in the country.

Club Competitions:

Members are urged to participate in Club Competitions as much as possible. Competition income contributes greatly to the finances and running of the Club, while increased participation adds to the overall enjoyment and success of our home events.
