INTERCLUBS - Our Mixed Foursomes team under the joint captaincies of Charlie O'Donnell and Tish Perry play a match this Wednesday the 8th of May against Ballaghaderreen Golf Club. We wish them the best of luck.
COURSE WORK- The annual pole-forking of the greens takes place on Tuesday the 14th of May. This does lead to some inconvenience as regards playing conditions on the course for a week or 2 afterwards but is absolutely vital to maintain the greens in good condition for the year.
