I hope that you had a great week and were able to get out and play some golf!! It was great to hear so much positive feedback throughout the week following the launch of new weekly newsletter. Some great suggestions of how we might introduce or change some competitions are coming in through various membership categories and it is definitely something we would be keen to try.
On the subject of competitions, I hope you have come across the new Tuesday Open Winter series that is running. Kindly supported by Castleknock Hotel, running over ten weeks with an order of merit structure for some fantastic overall prizes I would strongly urge you to get involved and bring along your friends to as many Tuesdays as you can.

Please also keep an eye out for the Thursday Invitational competitions that will run throughout winter, there will be tee times reserved throughout the day for you to enter and this is a great opportunity to invite some friends or work colleagues along to have a great day out on the course. The Thursday invitational will remain in a singles format for as long as qualifying competitions remain and following this we will introduce different formats such as 4 person teams, fourballs, foursomes etc to mix it up and give you some variations to enjoy! Keep an eye on the timesheets for information of the formats and please support these events by inviting your friends along, the success of the Thursday Invitational depends entirely on the members to get involved and invite your guests out for a great day!!
Finally, the rain over the weekend was a great reminder of how great a course we are lucky enough to have out there, with fantastic drainage the course stayed open and playable through the weekend while many other courses in the area closed. I hope you will agree with me and would like to say well done to the course staff for keeping it in great condition in spite of the heavy downpours!
