    Hi Golfers.


    Round 2 brings us to Fota Island.


    We are playing the deerpark course which hosted The Irish Open twice in the last few years so ye are in for a treat.


    If you have time check out the practice area with full driving range, chipping greens, putting greens, bunker practice.


    You will need to check in at the pro shop for Covid tracing and buy tokens for balls. Walk around the lake to the left and follow the path up through the trees.


    I have booked seating for 20 in the clubhouse for food. Try to eat with your playing partners please in tables of 4. They are still a bit sensitive regarding covid.


    I was hoping to have built up the kitty to subsidize this outing a bit more but having lost a few outings at the start of the year the well is a bit dry.
    I will need €55.00 per person for this one.


    I will set up Revolut closer to the time.
    Please make sure to decline on Teamer if something comes up as that is how I determine numbers to pay the course.


    That's it for the moment.
    See Ye Soon.

    Lazy B that I am.
    Lifted from the Irish Times from 2002 but it hasn't changed much. A few bunkers less that's all.

    Cant wait for this! had one of my best rounds on this course on a golfing trip years ago which I actually won! out of about 30 lads.. I probably played my best golf over 4 days but had a savage score in Fota which included an eagle and 2 birdies.. Travelled to the Irish open there on my own on the Sunday and had a great day! So I have very fond memories of the place and cant wait!

    Can't wait for this outing. Really excited.

    Hi
    I’m trying to accept the invite to Fota on my email... this leads me to Teamer. Instead of the usual option to decline or accept, there’s no mention of Fota anywhere and it’s just asking me if I want to collect money or register a new team. Anyone else had this problem or have any advice?
    My username on Teamer is Oreo124

    Hi Aleynaa. Haven't seen this before. Have you got the Teamer app installed on your phone? I find that to be more consistent than the email links.

    It sounds like maybe your profile in Teamer isn't logged in. That might be why its asking if you want to register?

    It’s possible I deleted you from Teamer as I recently did a clear out of people you expressed interest but never played or who haven’t been out in ages. Of course it’s possible I deleted some in error

    Have you played with us before/ recently? When did you sign up with us?


  • Registered Users Posts: 13 Aleynaa


    I was possibly deleted in error. I joined over a year ago but never played with ye before. Is there something I can do on the Teamer app to join up again?

    Well then you weren’t deleted in error! ;)

    Send me a pm with all the info that’s in my signature and I’ll set you back up later on

    A late tee time for me would suit if possible captain!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,128 ✭✭✭ kieran.


    A late tee time would be good for me too please.


  • Registered Users Posts: 272 ✭✭ Break80


    Last call on this one Golfers.

    I need to notify the course tomorrow re numbers.

    If you are on for the outing please accept on Teamer as this is where I will have the final amount of players.

    Thanks.

    BREAK 80.

    Really looking forward to this one captain. See ye down there.



  • Registered Users Posts: 267 ✭✭ Alanm


    Can I get one of the later tee times pls captain?



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,920 ✭✭✭ spacecoyote

    Im thinking of staying down on Saturday night after golf for a few beers. Could some of the locals recommend where to stay thats close to a bit of life?



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,202 ✭✭✭ woodyg


    Looking forward to this haven't been there since 2001!



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,591 ✭✭✭✭ Seve OB


    i'm not a local, but if you want a bit of life, its not that far from city centre. somewhere like jurys inn, or maybe an aul air B&B.

    Failing that, you could look at staying in Cobh or even Midleton?



  • Registered Users Posts: 272 ✭✭ Break80


    Jurys Inn would be fine if you can get it. Plenty of pubs,restaurants doing outdoor dining in the city but you would want to book them. Very little walk in space in any of them. People are going out early with 11pm closing.

    Oliver Plunkett St. Cook St. Mc Curtain St. are rocking at the moment but you need to book times.

    Henchy's in Lukes Cross or Barrys in Douglas are party central but again book a table for the night.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,507 ✭✭✭ OffalyMedic


    Can I have an early tee time please



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,920 ✭✭✭ spacecoyote


    See you down there at the weekend Captain. Looking forward to it.

    Where is the range and practice facilities relative to the course?



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,591 ✭✭✭✭ Seve OB


    Space when you park up and walk down to the clubhouse keep left, walk past it and keep walking…….. up past 18th green, through trees on left. It’s probably signposted or something.

    might need to stop in the clubhouse for range tokens, I’m not sure, possible you can buy them around at the actual range



  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 7,040 Mod ✭✭✭✭ charlieIRL


    is the EV charge point close to the course Captain? I've to head to dublin after the golf - 475kms spin for me tomorrow!!!
