We are delighted to see our members back on the fairways after such a long break. The weather is playing its part and of course all Covid 19 regulations are being adhered to with timeslots 15 minutes apart with 3 balls only allowed at the moment. We are delighted to see so many new members joining us. The course is looking in fine shape thanks to Hugh John, Finbar and all the volunteers. Please respect the Government guidelines and when you have completed your round of golf we respectfully ask you to leave the car park as quickly as you can.
