As and from last Saturday, November 9, the fairways at Portsalon Golf Club are out of play.
If your ball comes to rest on the fairway you must take it to the side and play from the semi rough. You may pick either side of the fairway and you may place your ball.
There will be a white line approximately 20-30 metres from the green and once you are on the green-side of that line you may play your ball from there with any club you wish.
Holes 2, 16 and 18 will not have a line but once you are green-side of the water you may play your ball from the fairway.
Council has been monitoring timesheet abuse and members who repeatedly fail to turn up for their allocated time will be contacted by the Honorary Secretary.
Where appropriate, action will be taken, up to and including suspension from competition, for repeated abuse.
Members are reminded that names should only be entered on the timesheet with the consent of all players concerned.
With limited space on timesheets, particularly in the shorter days, it is important that everyone respects these timesheet guidelines.
Club Singles Matchplay
Congratulations to Donal Callaghan Jnr who defeated James Duffy in the final of the Club Matchplay Singles event on Tuesday last; adding to his collection after taking the Doubles Matchplay on previous Sunday with partner Ryan McGettigan. A superb effort to win both events, it is surely a rarely matched double success.
