- Message from your Captain
- Hello my fellow golfers,Firstly, I hope you and your families are healthy and doing as well as possible in the current circumstances. At the start of our golf year who would have thought we would be in the current situation we are in now?At this stage, our best bet is to continue to obey government guidelines as much as we possibly can. Hopefully this will lead to our golf club opening soon and getting back into the swing of things.
I am sure Gerry the crow is lost without us and doesn’t know what is going on! Maybe he thinks it’s his fault the course is closed for thieving all the golf balls!
I look forward to playing golf with you soon and until then I will be practicing my pitching in the garden – watch out the neighbours!

Thanks to all our members for complying with the following:

- Walk & pull caddy cars on the dryer areas of the course and or in the rough bordering the very wet areas. If you are able, please use a shoulder bag.
- Reduce the number of clubs in your bag to a maximum of 8 & remove materials which would add to the weight of your bag.
- A great big thank you to the members who volunteered for The Kildare Alzheimer Society annual Memory Ribbon Collection Day on Thursday 21st November at Aldi & Dunnes Stores. We collected a fantastic €2,278 & a total of over €7,000 was raised, which is really fantastic for this very deserving charity. A special thanks to Liz Higgins & Nellie Delaney from the Ladies’ Club.
