Members will have, by now, received details of their subscription for 2022.
You are reminded that your subscription is due for payment by Monday, 28 February.
There will be no extension to this date due to the large volume of applications for new members.
Annual Subscription Payments
Members may pay their subscription through the office by Cash, Cheque, Debit or Credit Card. You may also phone in, with card details if you wish.
Members, wishing to pay the full payment by EFT can transfer direct into our Bank Account, with a reference to their name.
Our Bank Details are as follows:-
Any Member, who wishes to spread out their payments over ten months (March to December ) can do so, by signing up with Premium Credit.
Just contact the office and they will download the forms for you.
Any member who is already paying by Premium Credit just needs to let us know that they wish to renew and they do not need to complete any forms.
Wild flowers zones
Members are reminded that the designated wildflower areas on the course are strictly no go zones. This is particularly important at the moment as Spring brings new shoots.
The seeds which were harvested by members last September will be resown, adding greater colour and brilliance to this season’s crop.
If your ball lands in one the designated areas, players must agree with their playing partners, the approximate location of the errant shot.
You may then take a free drop, in line with that point, within one Club length and not nearer the hole.
Food & Beverage Update
Have you sampled our new coffee range from the Blue Butterfly Company?
Members can order from a range of coffee options and enjoy a quality coffee in the Clubhouse or if in a rush, why not opt for a take out.
Don’t forget to try a fresh scone from our new selection.
The February specials, continue to be available from Tuesday to Sunday, with last orders at 17.00hrs.
For €19, you can enjoy either a Steak Ciabatta Sandwich with caramelized onion, seasonal salad and fries, or a Thai Prawn Coconut Curry with lemongrass and ginger and basmati rice, together with a choice of a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay or a pint of beer.
AIG All Ireland Cups & Shields
Members, there is still time to enter your name for consideration to play for your Club in the above competitions.
