Special Prize

A very special prize has been presented this year from O’Connor Moore Dental Practice – A teeth whitening voucher valued at €300.  Instead of using this for one Competition the committee has decided that if any lady plays in 30 competitions or more from the Fixture list during the golfing season 1st April to 30th September she will be entered into a draw for this valuable prize.  A representative from O’Connor Moore will draw the lucky winner in October.

Fixture Card

The Fixture card is currently being printed and should be available from next weekend.  John Rainey has done a huge job of work putting the 2015 fixtures on the web page.

Cup Matches

Don’t forget to start playing your cup matches – there are two matches to be played before 30th April.

Team Captains

The Team Captains for the Junior Cup, Intermediate, Minor, Challenge and Junior foursomes will be shortly trying to get panels organised for these events – could we please ask you to put yourself forward – it is a great experience so please get involved.
