Three Buncrana Golf Club members were delighted to be back on the course this morning – hitting off bright and early at 7.30am.
Golf clubs and tennis courts have reopened today as part of Phase One of Ireland’s reopening roadmap, with clubs across the county welcoming members eager to return to their favourite sports.
Oisin O’ Flaherty, Brendan Murphy and Pauric O’ Flaherty were the ‘early birdies’ social distancing on the fairways in Buncrana today.
The club already has a full timesheet for the day, such was the excitement for the long-awaited Monday 18th reopening.
At present the committee have decided to run a 9 hole timesheet to ensure everyone gets the opportunity to play at least 9 holes of golf.
However from Monday 25th May the timesheet will continue to run on a 9 hole basis Monday to Friday inclusive with Saturdays and Sundays reverting to 18 holes.
The golf at present is for members only and members have to pre-book their tee time by ringing the clubhouse and the timesheet is available 3days in advance.
The office will re-open on a daily basis from Monday 18th May to ensure adherence to the GUI / ILGU Protocol and collection of membership fees.
The committee would also like to remind all members that all annual membership subscriptions have to be paid in full on or before Sunday 31st May. Anyone who hasn’t paid their membership in full on or before this date will no longer be a member of the club and not able to book a tee time.
There are great membership deals at present Male €350.00, Lady €232.00, Beginner Male €260.00 and Lady Beginner €190.00 all fees inclusive of G.U.I. / Insurance.
