The golfing season got off to a great start on the 4th January with a clear blue sky and plenty of sunshine. I am sure that this contributed to the wonderful golf that was played on the day resulting in 4 birdies, one each for Karina McGrane, Ann O’Connell, Kay Kennedy and Maria Brandon. The following week was the total opposite with gale force winds forcing Leopardstown to close the course! There were three more birdies during January and they were achieved by Maureen Kelly, Dolores Brennan and Patricia Murphy.
Congratulations go to Therese Cahill who was January Player of the Month in category C.
Over the past number of weeks we have welcomed 12 new members to the Society and said goodbye to 5. The 5 who have left are Helen Dundon, Mary Hoare, Jackie Sharpe, Niamh Nash, and Eimear Kingston.
My Captain’s Drive-in is taking place on Saturday, 29th February 2020 with a siren start at 12.30 p.m. Please assemble at 11.45 a.m. to collect your cards. The format for the day is a Greensome Team Event. The Notice is displayed on the Strollers’ notice board in the Locker room. Please sign up to play as soon as you can as the numbers are limited to 72. You will have the opportunity to meet most of the new members either on the course or, post-golf, in the Green Room.
Remember to bring your water with you to keep hydrated!
The rules for a Greensome Team Event are as follows:
Player A & B tee-off on every hole and the best drive is chosen. If Player A’s drive is chosen, Player B takes the second shot. Alternate shots are then taken until the ball is holed. Complimentary aperitif’s, lunch and prize-giving will follow golf in the Green Room. If you have any special dietary requirements, please let me or one of the Committee members know in advance and catering will provide a suitable alternative.
If inclement weather conditions prevent play, the lunch will go ahead at 1.30 p.m. and there will be a draw for prizes.
I wish you all the very best of luck and look forward to presenting the winners prizes!
