There were great conditions on the course again this week and a lot of golfers took advantage of the conditions.
Paul and his staff need to be complemented for the great condition of the course considering the amount of rain we had earlier in the month.
It is great to see new members who are taking advantage of the great deal we have for winter membership and enjoying playing on the links during the winter months. The next Gaeltacht match is on the 6th of December in Portsalon. Gerald and Cornie will be in touch with team players during the early part of next week. We wish the team the best of luck.
The Winter Open 4BBB competition started on the 1st of October. This competition is great because you can play any day of the week, with whoever you want and as many times as you want until you qualify. There are four monthly winners each month who go forward to the Grand Final on the 21st of June 2014. The first three pairs qualify automatically and then the fourth pair will be the best recorded score by a 4BBB made up of club members each month. The 4BBB can be any combination and it would be great to see mixed pairs taking part as a follow on from the great competition ran by John and Cheryl Chambers this summer. All details of the competition can be seen on posters displayed in the clubhouse.
