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, advice we would be unable to offer the quality of competition that we’ve had in years past.

To that end, sildenafil 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.

Captain’s Drive In 2016.

Captain’s Kathleen Kelpie and Pat McManus held their Captain’s Drive In on Saturday and there was a great turn out of people both showing their support for our new captain’s and playing in the competition.

The weather stayed relatively fine for the early part of the competition but the rain arrived and the wind picked up just a few holes into the competition, making things difficult for all involved.

2nd Ronnie Conlon, Noel Tivnan, Stephanie Conlon & Gerry Kilbride – 58.2
3rd Rory O’Connor, Eileen O’Connor, Ann NcNulty & Robbie Kelly – 58.3
