Hole in One
Last year we held a Hole in one competiton
so we will continue with a prize for the most hole in ones during the club competiton season this year as it proved very popular.
There's fierce competiton already with everyone trying to get the ultimate hole in one.
To date Patsy Hackett (4), Paddy Noonan (4) , Liam Simms(3), Michael Ahearne, Declan Byrne, Paddy Lawlor each have one each.
Breda O'Donnell (3) and Jacinta O'Mahoney (3) Bridget Walsh(2), Cait Mulcahy , Mary O'Neill and Corinne McGee now has a hole in one for the womens section.
Bonus number 6 the winner this week was Marion Burke.
Leaving Pitch Marks when playing destroys the greens, it takes a lot of care and attention to keep them in pristine condition, so all members and green fees are asked to repair them and use the correct repairer when doing so.
Also do not use the club head to take balls out of holes on greens as this damages the hole.
If anyone has an hour or two Mondays to Fridays to spare to give a hand helping on the course you would be very welcome.
