AIG All Ireland Cups & Shields
With the new golfing year approaching, Captain, Liam Barrett and Vice-Captain, Ben McGarry, are hoping for a successful year with our teams.
In an effort to broaden the pool of players available to Managers, they are placing a number of sheets on notice board so that interested members can put their names down for some of our Club teams.
We have a lot of new members and budding juniors who, managers may not know and so it is an opportunity for all to let managers know you are available and interested in playing . The handicap requirements will be displayed on each team sheet and the sheets will be handed over to managers when they meet the Captain in late January.
The final panel will be selected by the managers of each team so please, don’t be shy and place your name on the sheet for consideration.
