Winter League Changes

The men’s competition committee has decided that this year, instead of the top FOUR teams qualifying from each group, the top FIVE teams from each group will now go through to the qualifying stages of the competition.

Best of luck to all teams over the remainder of what up to this point has been a fantastic competition.

Competition Sponsorship

It’s that time of the year where the men’s competition committee are starting to put together the competition fixtures and sponsors for the coming year. Sponsors play a vital role in the success of competitions at Strandhill Golf Club and without their continued support, we would be unable to offer the quality of competition that we’ve had in years past.

To that end, if there are any members who know of someone or indeed who would be interested in sponsoring a competition themselves at Strandhill Golf Club this year, you can speak to any member of the men’s committee.
