Boards Golf Society-Captains Prize-September 22nd-12:00

Hi Lads
Well here we are again ,the end of the society year and another great year it was.The year has been a real eye opener to the work that goes in to running the society and what the lads do in the background to keep us all playing good courses at society prices and a bit of friendly competition thrown in aswell.:

The final outing is Rosses Point Co.sligo and I have been looking forward to this since I posted the list of courses nearly a year ago now back in november 17!
As a big links fan myself I had to finish with a quality links course.Although I have never played here I stopped to check it out on the way home from Ballyliffin back in july and the setting is unreal.If the wind gets up there it could be carnage to a scorecard.
96 out of 100 from Kevin Markham is a whopping score and it's in his top ten links courses aswell...........Can't wait
The cost for our members is 55 euros for this and if there is space for visitors it's 65euros.Only members can win the Captains prize on the day.
Be advised aswell we have to confirm numbers 21 DAYS OUT .......so I will have to cancel any spots before that or we will be charged for the tee times.(20 slots are booked)
As usual we will have the Golfer of the year champion crowned on the day and the ryder jug team and Captains picks announced aswell.
The annual social night happens after the golf and analysis is over and it's always a great night to recap on the year gone by and whats to come.
As said in the main thread earlier, accomadation is booked for 120 per room in the glasshouse in sligo town and i could only get 7 double rooms and 3 twin rooms so upto yourselves what ye want to do.

Definitely staying up on Saturday and may even head up on the Friday which I won't know till nearer time.

Its a great course and if weather acts up it will sort out men from boys. The closing stretch will severely test your game. All great holes but number 17 A par or better here and you can brag on Saturday night.

Thanks Captain,

I won't stay on Saturday, only on Friday, so might get something booked on my own unless someone is staying also on Friday

I will try to play Strandhill open on Friday if anyone fancies that too!

In 100%! Appreciate it if you can save me a twin bed too.

Had an advanced look at Rosses earlier this summer. It's a tough beaut and comes with a warm welcome. Friendly clubhouse, I would have loved to have stayed around a little longer after my visit.

For those folks traveling up the day before, Strandhill have an Open Day on Fridays, €30, but don't seem to have it up on their booking system.
Their contact details are

Call: 0719168188

Hope this is of use, Standstill is a super and quirky at times links, mid-back 9 are wonderful and for €30 super value
