This Week’s Competitions
Mon 8th – Fri 12th – Course Closed for Coring (see below)
Sun 14th – 18h Club Singles, sponsored by MaxPower.ie (some Saturday tee times available)
Course Closure – Coring of Greens
Don’t forget that the annual coring of the greens will take place from Monday 8th September to Friday 12th September, with the course reopening on Saturday 13th September (or earlier depending on progress of the work). Coring of the greens is essential work in helping to maintain a healthy root zone for the greens – so please bear with us – it won’t be long before the greens are back to their best.
3Ts, PGA Tankard & Munster Mid-Amateur Championships
We had a number of individuals and teams representing the club over the last week with some measure of success. The 3Ts team, who won the national event last year, put in a good performance in the regional qualifier at Dundrum House, however they did not finish in the top 3 who advance to the National Finals. Tim Doyle was representing the Men’s section. Hugh Behan was the men’s representative in the PGA Tankard regional qualifier at Carlow. Once again, the New Ross team put in a good performance but failed to advance to the national finals. Finally, well done to Derek Ronan who finished in a very creditable 9th place in high quality field at the Munster Mid-Amateur Championships at Limerick over the weekend.
