Boards Golf Society-Palmerstown-21st July-12:40pm

Hi Lads
Next outing is Palmerstown.I have only played here once before 4 or 5 years ago and can't really remember the full course, but I do remember it being a nice course.We are pulling back upto the centre of the country so hopefully the numbers will bounce back for this 1!
Just a bit on the course from the Hooked Bible.......
The main feature of the course is water!!:eek:Thirteen holes with water in play to be exact.To add to that big bunkers to catch the stray shots.
A top parkland course that looks great to the eye aswell.
A good few lads have a bit of work to do to make the ryder jug team at the end of the golfing year with only 3 counting competitions left to play beforehand.
Some of the usual big hitters will make the next outings count,i have no doubt
The cost on the next outing is 60 to visitors,45 to members and 40 to members who played Mitchelstown as this was to subsidise the more expensive courses(palmerstown is costing us 50)
See ye all in 3 weeks and enjoy the brilliant weather we are getting.It feels like we are playing golf out in portugal the last 2 weeks

this is a looonnnnnggggggg course guys. big hitters will have an advantage... but only if they are straight because it is tight and punishing

I did a search for the thread on our last outing to Palmerstown and indeed the winner that day is a long and straight hitter.
A few of the long term members might remember him: A fella named stevieob

Played it off the Black Tees a few weeks ago on Black Sunday what a beast! was actually going well too.. Just ran out of energy, steam, feelings in my legs and scratched the last 4 holes

There was 60/70 yards between the black and whites Tees on some holes!! course was in super nick cant wait to go back! never got my 2's money either, rang 2 or 3 times (bad form really) but I'll be saying it to them! didn't even want to enter it!

long maybe, but not always straight. I think I had 36 that day and also had the longest drive on the last hole which obviously passed on to next best in line. I think I made a mess of the approach and was lucky to finish with a 6.

looks dodgy now that I will be able to defend my crown

Any chance I could get an early (ideally first) tee-time as I have another engagement that evening? Thanks Captain.

Good thinking. I played this course two weeks ago and it took well over 5 hours.
