KING HARMON CUP - The marathon campaign that was 2020 King Harmon Cup match play tournament is almost at a close, a full 9 months after it started. Vincent Egan and Gerry Carty are the last men standing, having been victorious in their respective semi-finals, and will do battle in the final shortly. The King Harmon Cup has been played for in the club since the early 1930s.
BAR - The clubhouse and bar facilities remain closed in adherence to the NPHET guidelines. The next loosening of restrictions of note takes place on Monday the 7th of June when licensed premises are allowed to sell alcohol for consumption outdoors. Whilst the club would very much like to facilitate this, it may prove difficult with current resources. If members are willing to give of their time and skills to get the bar open in a manner that complies with the rules, please contact House Convenor, Vincent Egan. If it is felt that we cannot comply with the guidelines on 7/6/21, the bar may have to stay shut until full indoor service is allowed.
FIXTURES - A full fixtures list for the remainder of 2021 will be published during the coming week. Next Sunday, the 23rd of May sees the “Captain’s Drive-in”, which has always been our traditional start to the golfing year. As we are still not permitted to hold large get-togethers, for this year we will have to forego the traditional bloodsport of all crowding around a nervous Captain trying not to make a hames of the ceremonial drive up the 1st fairway. The Captain would like to reassure members that you will have ample opportunity to see exactly how bad a golfer he is later in the year. The format of the competition will be an 18 hole Stableford.
The following Sunday, the 30th of May is the date for this year's Voucher competition. This is the most lucrative prize of the year, as the winner gets their membership fee handed back to them, up to the value of full single membership. To be eligible to win, you must have your membership paid up to date for 2021.
The Holmpatrick Cup takes place on Sunday the 3rd of June.
