There will be a volunteers evening this Wednesday evening at 7pm to have the course looking tidy for Presidents Day, it would be great to have a good turnout, please bring equipment if you have same, e.g strimmer/brush/shovel etc.
MEMBERSHIP FEES OUTSTANDING - There are a number of membership fees outstanding from people playing on a weekly basis. Anyone whose membership is not in good standing is not entitled to win a prize including in next Sundays President's Prize.
REDUCED GREEN FEES FOR CHILDREN - We have a very competitive membership rate for under 18s at 60 euro for a full year. Our usual green fee for a round for a non member is 15 euro, but we are offering a special reduced green fee for under 18s on Mondays of just 5 euro. This rate will apply on Mondays for June, July and August. We hope this will allow some children and teenagers try out the game and see if they enjoy it without having to commit to a Junior Membership first. Just sign the Green Fee book in the front hall of the clubhouse and place the green fee in an envelope in the letterbox beside the inner door. Under 18s must be supervised by an adult.
