Please be reminded that all prize winners are expected to attend the presentation. If you do not attend the presentation or are not represented at it you will not receive your prize. The draw for the Sunday tee times over Christmas will take place after the presentation, as will the Find the Joker draw (Jackpot €5,002)
The Christmas Classic begins on Saturday 20th December and continues until Tuesday January 6th. The aim is to provide an enjoyable competition for members and visitors with any money raised going towards the upkeep of the course during the winter – money well spent when you consider the great condition and playability of our course right throughout the year.
The competition is open to men, women and visitors in any combination. The entry fees are €5 for members and €15 for visitors. The format is an 18 hole 2 person team event off full handicaps with 1 score to count on the Par 4s and both scores counting on the Par 3s and Par 5s.
There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall, handicap category prizes (Cat A, combined h’cap <20; Cat B, combined h’cap 21 – 30, Cat C, combined h’cap >30), mixed, ladies and visitors prizes.
Please note that if there are only 3 players on a line, entries will be accepted on a criss-cross basis, in which case the player doubling up will have to pay two entry fees. Of course, one pair can also play with the other player acting as a marker.
We hope that you get behind this event – it’s a different format to try to provide an enjoyable competition for as many as possible, and there’s a wide range of prizes on offer to suit all types of pairings.
Care of the Course – Winter Conditions
We are extremely lucky that our course is built on such free draining land and that affords members the opportunity to play golf right throughout the year. It’s only a very small price to pay for this privilege to ensure that we all make an extra effort to repair our pitch marks, replace our divots and rake the bunkers when the course is at its most vulnerable.
Please bring the divot bags out with you each time you play golf and use the sand to repair any divots you come across on the course.
The greenkeepers have asked members to be especially careful on frosty mornings not to cause damage to the greens by walking on to the greens with iced-up shoes. Ensure that all ice built up on golf shoes is removed before walking on to the greens. If damage is caused to the greens in this fashion, the only option for the greenkeepers will be to close the course on frosty days in future.
Last chance for those of you who wish to bring home the Turkey this Christmas. The 9 hole Turkey Singles are open until Friday. Entry costs €4 and a new competition will start every 20 entries. To enter, put your name in the competition book and pay your entry fee in the Pro Shop before commencing your round. If the Pro Shop is closed when you are starting, please leave a note at the Pro Shop and pay when you finish. Placing everywhere (except, of course, within a hazard) within 6 inches is permitted for the Turkey Singles. The winners of each Turkey competition will carry 2 shots into subsequent competitions.
