    Hi All,

    Its rolled back around pretty quickly, and we're back to a familiar haunt for the society, Portarlington GC. I think its been a couple of years since we've been there, but it's always a great course to return to.

    We have a plenty of time slots for this. I was trying to make sure that we have everyone covered. But if you could all accept as soon as possible on Teamer so that we can confirm the numbers, that would be great.

    For anyone who has won a prize, but not yet collected it, I'll have them with me to hand over, so hopefully all the past winners can make it...I've plenty of prizes to offload at this stage :D

    Looks like they have a good course guide here:

    Hope to see you all there soon for round 3 of the 2020 season.

    There is food there available in the clubhouse. If we have a confirmation from people that they want food, I will be able to get a menu ahead of time I think and can put in orders for people before their round. Otherwise, you will be able to get food there afterwards, if you want to.

    Green fee on the day will be 35, 37 including the 2s club.

    Revolut is the simplest, if possible, can everyone please transfer the green fees.

    I had a look at the threads from our past outings to Portarlington and these were the results.


    2013:
    1st ballyk - 36 points
    2nd Rikand - 36 points
    3rd FixdePitchmark - 36 points


    2017:
    1st Macker1 - 36 points
    2nd SeveOB - 36 points
    3rd doublecross - 36 points




    So 37 points is the target smile.png

    Thanks captain, looking forward to this one, loved it 3 years ago, even if my round was a disaster.

    BTW, this thread is not pinned, almost missed it

    Very tight at the top the previous times!

    ...and who said Fix can't play parkland golf?

    Thanks for organising, how much, via Revolut again?

    jaysus i don't even remember featuring the last time around!
    but it was my first boards event back in 2013 and i do remember that round, played with Ballyk and the Big Easy that day with Easy rocking up looking like a homeless junkie on his first trip to a golf course who then proceeded to give us a lesson on chipping in from around the greens :D it's great that the 3 of us are still regulars of the society and a testament to how good it is..... get involved people, well worth it
    there was a fourth man that day, i think it may have been Blockic, don't see him around anymore, maybe we frightened him off haha

    anyway, i was mighty impressed with the course that day in 2013, the only thing that lets it down is the 18th crosses a green and 2 other fairways, but it didn't stop me making a few return visits over the years, but it was the last outing since i was there last time. really looking forward to going back..... and collecting my prize :D i hope there will be a fanfare and a round of applause ;)

    Any chance of this partial lockdown crack affecting us?

    Looks like no travel into Laois for the next 2 weeks


  • Registered Users Posts: 821 ✭✭✭ paulos53


    I just spotted that the golf course is actually in County Offaly, not Laois. However the same restrictions apply there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,929 ✭✭✭ spacecoyote


    Tried ringing them this evening, but got no answer.

    Will ring them again in the morning. If it's a no go, I'll be scrambling for an alternative straight away

    It seems that non contact sports are allowed but would you be allowed to go into Laois Offaly Kildare to play or will it be members only, I suspect the latter

    How about us poor people who are unfortunate enough to like in L/O/K and are in dire need of Ryder Jug points?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,129 ✭✭✭ kieran.


    The advice says there should be no travel into the three counties, other than for exemptions relating to work, medical appointments, family or animal emergencies.

    Hope we get a back up sorted !

    I’m getting sick of Covid.
    Well I’m not sick with Covid, thankfully.
    But it’s really pissing me off now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,929 ✭✭✭ spacecoyote


    Hi all, have been on to Portarlington this morning, and as we all knew anyway, we csmt go ahead with this.

    I've gotten a replacement booking for the 29th August so everyone should hopefully be out of lockdown by then, in a change of venue.

    Will post up a fresh thread now

    Can a mod change the thread title to cancelled and maybe leave it stickied for a couple of days so people see it
