The Golf Club successfully conducted the Presidents and Captains Drive-Ins to officially launch the new golfing year and President Mattie Curley took the opportunity to wish all members a healthy golfing year.
On the course, the hole-in-one trend continues with Kevin Cunniffe celebrating this achievement on the par 3, 8th hole. There was further success as club member Aidan Grenham finished in 3rd place in his first EDGA championship in Portugal recently.
The ladies players have been benefitting from their inaugural Upskilling Sessions, which have been successfully running over the last few months. Led by Associate Pro Mark Staunton, all the participants have been working on various aspects of their game including chipping, putting, iron play, and driving.
The fundraising for the State-of-the-Art Practice Area and for the Junior Golfers continues with what has become a firm favourite with members and non-members alike — the latest Last Man Standing fundraiser has now been launched and all are invited to support. It is a simple competition where you pick one golfer to finish in the top 20 in the final standings of certain tournaments. Entry is €10 and entry envelopes are available in the office, players must be entered by April 6.
They recently concluded an enjoyable St. Patrick’s Day scramble event. Next up will be the Good Friday Bonus Ball event which is always an enjoyable competition. Planning for this year’s Festival of Golf is also underway and the club hopes to build on the success of last year’s event where they welcomed many visitors to the course. The event will run in July this year.
Board Member Barry O’ Keefe also added: “We are delighted to see so many new and returning members this year and we look forward to brighter evenings ahead and the resumption of coaching programmes for all. Society bookings for the coming year are busy and we look forward to welcoming many visitors to the club.”
