The writer has heard many, many compliments about the course over the last couple of weeks and is taking this opportunity to publically thank Finbar and Hugh John for the fabulous vista that greets us when we play Clones Golf Course. The boys work tirelessly to get the course looking it’s best for us all and is a credit to them. The volunteers are also much appreciated. For our part we just need to mend those pitch marks and replace the divots to keep her looking so good!
