Club V1 App
Hopefully most members have downloaded the Club V1 app on their phones at this stage. Remember if two members have the same email address you will need to change one of them to enable you to register. Where a member has children members also, they may have registered their own email for the children when they originally became members.

Women in Golf Charter:
Golf Ireland have launched an initiative called, Women in Golf Charter, which they have asked all clubs to sign up to and commit to.
The aim is to increase the number of women and girls playing and working in golf.
It is also focused on encouraging more families to enjoy golf as a leisure activity and encourage more opportunities for women to work in the golf industry.
Kilkenny Golf Cub fully supports the initiative and we will keep members actively informed on our progress.
