Ladies Club Notes

News

As the new golfing year begins,  we are hoping for a successful year with our various teams.

Lady Captain, Mags Cuddihy and Vice-Captain, Mary Norton, wish to give all members the opportunity to express an interest in playing on a team should they wish to do so.

To this end, they are placing a number of sheets on the notice board and inviting anyone interested to put her name down. The handicap requirements will be displayed on each team sheet.  The sheets will later be given to the team managers when they meet the Lady Captain in in the coming weeks and the final panels will then be selected by the managers of the various teams.  So, please do put your name  on the sheet for consideration and remember you do not need to have played on a team before, so don’t be shy!

 

Round Robin

It’s that time of year again when the Round Robin gets underway!

It will be played during February and March and is a great way to give your golf a kick start.

It also gives the opportunity to perhaps play with people you may not have met or played with before.

The sheet for entries is on the notice board and the draw will be made on Feb 6th.  So, c’mon everybody!

 

Cross Cards

The Nine Hole/13 Hole Cross-card competitions have re-started and the details on how to play cross cards are posted on the notice board.  Remember, cross cards can be played during casual golf slots and also while playing in weekly competitions.
