We have been extremely fortunate with the weather conditions in November and I don’t think the course has ever been in such great condition at this time of the year.
It is great to see so many golfers on the course throughout the week. Long may it continue. It was great to see Derek Porter in the winner’s circle again with a fine score on Sunday. Well done to Dan Curran from Letterkenny on Wednesday.
This Sunday is the monthly medal and it is the last chance for anyone outside of the top twenty to qualify for the Grand Final on Sunday 14th of December. The list of the Top Twenty is on the notice board. The next Gaeltacht match is on this Saturday in Portsalon. We wish the team the best of luck. Congratulations to Termon Ladies Football team who won the All-Ireland last weekend. What an achievement. I have no doubt they are still celebrating their victory.
The best of luck to the lady Members who have their Hamper completion on this Saturday and hopefully they have good weather. Don’t forget to spread the word regarding the next senior open competition on the 15th of December for men and ladies. The first outing was a great success and it can only get bigger.
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.
