Christmas Menu – Tees Restaurant
Padraig Murphy has prepared his Christmas Menu for Tees Restaurant – you can view it on the Tees Restaurant Facebook page (why not give them a “like” while you’re on it):
The menu is also available on the Golf Club website. We are sure you will agree that it is a very tempting menu at a great price of just €25.
The area to the right of the 8th and 10th fairways is a designated practice area and is open for use at all times. Members using the practice area are not visible from the 8th and 10th tees, therefore it is essential that anyone hitting a ball towards the practice area shouts “FORE”.
Paying next year’s Subscription
Just a reminder that it is possible to pay your 2014 subscription now via your GUI card at the bar. You can pay any amount you choose and make payments as often as you like. The amounts paid will be taken off your subscription renewal when it is sent out in the New Year. For more information contact Anthony or Kathleen in the Golf Club.
