WITH the resumption of golf last Monday there was much appreciation from the local golfing fraternity to getting back on the fairways and playing they game they all love.
At Buncrana Golf Club, there was a fantastic turnout every day and everyone made sure the guidelines on social distancing were adhered too.
With the course is in excellent conditions and the greens second to none a couple of the low handicappers took full advantage and set a target for rest to aim for.
Christopher McCallion (4) must’ve been working on his game during the lockdown as he played some tremendous golf to shoot a 61 gross score over the 18 holes which equates to a 5 under gross score.
Fiáchra O’ Flaherty (5) who has been seen working on his short out the back of the house also took this form into his game by shooting a fantastic score of 29 shots for 9 holes which equates to 4 under gross over the 9.
With the course in such excellent condition the rest of the low handicappers will be out to either beat or match this scoring over the weeks ahead.
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 3 days in advance. The office is open on a daily basis 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.
