AGMs - AGM season is approaching, with a provisional date for the overall club AGM of 6/12/20. The mens’ and ladies’ sections AGMs will be held on dates prior to that. There will most likely be an EGM also ( Extraordinary General Meeting) as there  may be changes in the governance structure of the club with one of the mooted changes being the dissolution  of the mens and ladies with the management committee taking on these committees’ previous roles. This would require changes in the constitution of the club, hence the need for an EGM. Dates for these meetings will be published soon.

ORDER OF MERIT - There is only one event left to count for Golfer of the Year points. The order of merit has been constantly changing and this Sunday saw Lochlainn Conboy overtake Martin Daly to take the lead with 47 points to Martins 45. Liam Mullaney is not far off with 39 points, followed by Tadhg Lowe on 32.
