General Notes
2021 Club Diary.
The Club Diary for 2021 is now available in the ClubV1 Members hub.
For the first time the club has a real time diary that will reflect the ongoing changes on a week by week and day by day basis, keeping members up to date on fixtures and any fixture adjustments. The Club V1 members hub is accessible on the club website and can be downloaded onto your phone via the ClubV1 app.
If you are having issues in downloading please contact the office.

Many members have downloaded the Club V1 app and are now reaping the benefits of this ‘one stop shop’ to get all details relating to Club activities.
Heretofore you had to have downloaded two/three apps to access BRS, HowDidiDo etc., but with Club V1 you have all you need in one App.
If you haven’t done so yet, please download the Club V1 app now.

Once again, a reminder that your Annual membership is due for renewal and can be done by any of the different methods outlined in previous weekly notes.

Course News
With the improvement in the current weather and rising temperatures, it is hoped that the Grounds Staff will be in a position to hollow core the greens early next week.
This will mean no interruption to golf once we receive the green light to resume play and
we can then expect our greens to be in tip top condition.

Barry Joyce continues with his excellent take-away meals this coming week-end.
Meals will be available for guests on Saturday (16.30-19.30hrs) and Sunday (13.00-17.30hrs.)
Barry can be contacted on 086 820 5260 when you can place your order and arrange a collection time.

Members of the Seniors Golf Society can use their Christmas Gift vouchers as payment/ part payment for any meals they order.
