25th October 2016 Director of Golf Members Message

Hi All,

I hope that you had a great week and were able to get out and enjoy the mild weather we have been lucky enough to have so far in October. It has been great to see people still out enjoying a game in short sleeves and even in some cases shorts which is unusual for this time of year as you know.

Although there has been great start to the “off season” no doubt the dreaded winter weather will soon kick in and winter rules will have to come into force, but for now we will keep an eye on the conditions and keep qualifying golf going for as long as the weather permits, please ensure you confirm the conditions of the day when checking in for your game.

This week I would like to say a few words of congratulations to the Junior Committee. As some of you may be aware, this year was the first year that Junior Membership has been available at the club. Proposed by driven Captain, Johnny Craven, the outstanding success of the junior club to date has been fantastic to see. The committee have been working tirelessly in the background ensuring that correct structures are in place to provide an appropriate and fun experience for our Junior members. With weekly competitions and Coaching by our Head Professional, Ciaran it is now common place to see junior golfers around the club enjoying their golf and getting better each week. Last weekend was the final event of the summer schedule and the feedback from parents and members has been extremely positive throughout. Well done to all involved it really is a credit to all involved and a real positive step forward for the club!

Finally, I would just like to remind you of a few upcoming events to keep an eye out for this coming weekend.

  • (Friday) 28th October Poker Night being organized by Karl Craven, further details on the member’s section of the website.
  • (Sunday) 30th October, Colleen has arranged a Fun Nine & Dine taking place between 1:30pm – 2.30pm if you would like to invite your friends along for some fun, book online or call the pro shop.
