General Notes
Membership
The renewal of Club membership is now closed.
The committee will be meeting later this week to examine the long list of new applications and will be offering membership accordingly.

St. Patrick’s Week-end Competitions
In conjunction with our excellent sponsors, Paddy Raggett Homes, Kilkenny Golf Club will hold two separate competitions over the St. Patrick’s holiday week-end.
On Thursday & Friday, 17 & 18 March, there will be an Open Four Person Team event.
On Saturday and Sunday there will be the Spring Singles (GOTY) for members.

AIG Cups And Shields
This is the final call for members wishing to represent your club in Team Golf.
The Team Managers have placed a list of the various competitions that the Club will be playing in this season on the notice board. If you would like to be considered for any of these teams, please place your name on the relevant sheet.
The managers will be meeting very shortly to review each list and form a panel of players for the coming season.

Parking.
It has come to the attention of the management that some members are abusing the parking facilities of the club.
No member has permission to occupy one of the designated spaces reserved for Club Officers. Neither do you have permission to park in the marked zone immediately in front of the Pro Shop.

Course News
With the continuing wet weather and soft under foot conditions you are reminded to take extra care when playing your round of golf.
Remember to repair your pitch marks and bring a divot sand-mix bag with you.

Although we are back playing 18 hole golf, placing on the fairway and in the rough will continue until further notice.
