Protect Your Course.
Over the past number of weeks concern has been expressed by a number of members at the number of golfers who do not replace their divots. Replacing divots is no more than good golf etiquette. So we should all think of our fellow golfers and replace our divots. In addition all members are encouraged to take a Divot Bag with them on their golfing round and replace the divot with either the mixture or the actual divot. Divot bags are available on entry to the first tee box and also at the 5th & 12th tee boxes.. Please ensure that you pick up a divot bag and assist with the course maintenance. We can all play a part.
The Captain Joe Harkin, the President Kathleen Mc Cormick and the members of Portsalon Golf Club would like to express their deepest sympathy to the Claire and Dessie Ferry on the recent death of their mother. May she rest in peace.
