Anyone found cutting up fairways and bombarding greens by hitting in half a dozen balls at a time (as has happened more than once during the week) will be referred to the Committee. As always prolonged practice sessions of chipping on to greens on the course is prohibited. Please ensure these guidelines are followed in the interests of protecting the course.

If you insist on using lots of balls we must insist you do so ONLY in the allocated practice area.

Well done to all our players and winners this week and we appreciate your support. It’s great to see we had very positive turnout of visitors for our Bank Holiday Open. We are particularly appreciative to our Club Sub #2 sponsors ‘Pepper Home Loans’ who really got into the spirit of things with an abundance of signs and posters. They even supplied free tees for all!

The Thursday Open stableford competition for Ladies & Gents continues on the 11th August. Please bear in mind that players playing in competition have ‘right of way’ over casual golf on Thursday’s.

CLUB CLASSIC – Our annual Club Classic sponsored by Sean White, Renault will take place over the weekend of 26th-28th August so it’s time to start thinking of assembling your team. There is one slight change to the format. This year it’s all 4 to score only on the 15th with 2 scores to count everywhere else. As per the last couple of years the 15th will be the focus of a lot of attention with a fantastic prize of a Renault Clio for a Hole in One there. We will also have a ‘Closest to the Pin’ competition there and for an extra €5 you can have a crack at winning a 4 person B&B plus golf stay at Waterford Marina Hotel. There will as always be lots of team prizes on offer including a ‘Best Ladies’ and a ‘Non GUI/ILGU’ category.

2016 GOTY – Considering his name seems to appear in the prizes for almost every competition we have, it is no surprise that Jamal Sabir holds a commanding lead after the inclusion of the ‘Pepper Home Loans’ sponsored Club Sub #2 competition. Of the 13 competitions played so far Jamal has scored in 11 of them including the last 9 consecutively which is a great sequence of results. Jamie Colgan is 50pts behind in 2nd with John Smyth 3rd and Willie Ganly 4th. Eamon Coughlan picked up 27pts and is now tied 5th with Tommy Digan.

TEAMS – Irish Mixed Foursomes – We lost today to Lucan GC in the Leinster Semi-Final held at Royal Curragh GC. Managers Padraig Keenan & Marian Mullen wish to thank everyone for their good wishes and all those who played during their fine run. The pairings today were Liam Galvin & Beth Dunne, Tommy Digan & Loreto Boland, Bert Burke & Mags Galvin, Willie Digan & Veronica Colgan, Brendan Kehoe & Veronica Coughlan and we went down 3.5 to 1.5

JUNIORS – Have a competition organised for every Friday from 10-11am.
