Congratulations to 3Ts team
Captain Seamus McGuinness capped a great year as he led the New Ross 3Ts team to victory over a local team at La Cala Mijas is Spain last week. Seamus was joined by club professional, James Roche, Joey Furness and Maria Burford. The team won the trip to Spain last month at the K Club where they were crowned National Champions. Congratulations to the team on their fantastic achievement.
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”.
