It may not have been the Ryder Cup but the competition was every bit as intense as the over 50’s teams from Portsalon and Ballyliffen contested the first leg of the Donegal final on Saturday last. The travelling Portsalon team came away with two matches to Ballyliffens three. With Ballyliffen holding a slender lead the return leg is scheduled for Sunday 5th November, this has all the makings of a classic match so come out and support out tea on the day.
As the short days are now fast approaching, we should all remember to avoid slow play on our golf course, ‘’ Your position on the course is a shot behind the group ahead of you and not just ahead of the group behind you!’’ All golfers must practice good golfing etiquette if your group is holding up the group behind then simply call them through.

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. If you forget to collect your divot bag at the first tee there is another chance to do so on the second tee. We can all play a part.
