Last weekend the club launched a new Saturday competition called super Saturday. Played off blue tees and over 12 holes on a Stableford basis, this proved to be a really tough challenge for the competitors. With the tees placed in unique positions, considerable length was added to the course and it provided some interesting holes on the day. The winner of this competition was Darren Flaherty with a score of 49 nett. The club is introducing a non competitive membership from September to the end of December for just €100. This is a great opportunity for anyone thinking of getting into golf or indeed for former members who have let their membership lapse and might be keen to get back out on the course. Details can be had from the club office at 096 21050.
