Saturday Sweepon Sunday 21 December 2014 - 14:26:59
The Saturday before Christmas traditionally attracts one of the smallest number of players of the year to the day’s competition and yesterday 98 golfers were allowed out to play in the Club Sweep over 14 holes on a cool but sunny, dry day.

Wednesday Sweepon Friday 19 December 2014 - 14:02:40
Wednesday’s weekly sweep was played close to the winter solstice and its outcome provided an interesting contrast to the results of the sweep played just before its summer equivalent. Of the 33 players who played this week, 25 scored 40pts or better making a percentage of 75.8%. On 18 June 130 players took part and 3 scored 40pts or better, which was 2.3%. In June 17% of the field had 2s, this week 40%.

Sunday Sweepon Monday 15 December 2014 - 18:26:34
All of Sunday’s prizes went to players who have been topping up their spending power in time for Christmas with regular visits to the prizes in recent weeks. John Hartnett can thank a brilliant back 9 of 3 under par for coming out on top with 45pts off 8. He had 4 bogeys and 5 birdies on his way round and with 3 of those birdies coming at 10, 13 and 15, they gave him the edge in a very tight finish.
Club Sweepon Monday 15 December 2014 - 18:20:41
If there was a prize for Player of the Month then Francis Tallon would be a leading contender. He won yesterday with 36pts off 4 thanks to 6 birdies and 1 bogey. His bogey came at the 5th and this is just the second shot he has dropped at that hole since the start of September.
Mildred Martinon Saturday 13 December 2014 - 15:11:15

Officers and Council are delighted to announce that part time bar lady Sinead McManus will now be joining the club in a full time capacity. The role has become vacant since Seamus O’Hagan’s retirement and Sinead has been successful in her application. She is very well known to members and brings a lot of experience and enthusiasm to the role. She has been with the club in a part time role for a number of years now plus her recent experience working in Golf and Country Clubs in the USA and other parts of the world will only benefit everyone in the club.
50pts barrier at last!on Monday 08 December 2014 - 15:08:51
A number of golfers have come tantalisingly close to the magical 50pts over the last few weeks only to come up just short. Tony Gallery was a prominent member of that group and it was no great surprise to see him run up the magic total on Sunday. The last few Sundays have seen him score 42, 44, 46 and 42, and on each occasion there was always someone about to beat him.
