2020 May News

  • For week commencing 25th May & 1st June  we are asking all lady & gents of Clane Golf Clubs to contribute €1 for each nine holes played during the two weeks in aid of St. Vincent de Paul Society. Eamonn will advise of the amount for each golfer. This is not mandatory, & you are welcome to contibute more, or not to contribute, but we all know that the demands for help from St. Vincent de Paul will be considerable in the coming months & it would be nice to show them how much we appreciate the great work that they do.
  • Bring your own hand sanitizer. There is some near the notice board, use your own but if you need to use the club’s sanitizer, please use sparingly- only a couple of drops needed!
