We normally play the 3rd Saturday of each month "Feb - Sept"
*But please note the first outing "Portmarnock Links" is on the "4th" Sat of the month*
Membership is €30 for the year. As you can see there is 8 outings. Your best 5 outings count towards making the Ryder Jug team. At each outing you will get points depending on where you finished. Top 10 automatically qualify for the Ryder Jug team & the Captain (Me) has 2 picks We also have a Golfer of the year award. So even if you dont win an outing you have something to play for all year. The Ryder Jug team plays against another Society "The Reps" normally around the 3rd Saturday in October venue tba.
New members most welcome! You just need to have a love of the game
Hopefully the venues will entice some of the old members back! And a lot of new members to join. I hope there tempted at least.
This year I tried my best to put a real emphasis on the quality of Courses & to get them as cheap as possible which with rates going up is no easy task! I like to thank the committee for all the help & the people that done me favours! There was a lot of work & haggling involved behind the scenes that really goes unnoticed.
Many thanks to Post Punk the outgoing Captain I personally had a great year! Got my first Boards win, nearly had a second only for Tigerwood1 to beat me by a point on the 18th but a great round & great memories.. And gave the Golfer of the year a real run..
So thats it! Enjoy the break & hopefully 2019 is a golfing year to remember.
Your Captain for 2019
