Happy Easter

Congratulations to the following March winners:


  • Caroline Galloway
  • Karin Ryan
  • Kathryn Geraghty
  • Marie Maher
  • Sarah Lynn

Golfer of the Month – Category C is Una McElwee

Shamrock Competition – Congratulation to the 3 winners in each category.  It was held on a very sunny Saturday in March.

Our first Away Day of the year was hold last Saturday at Arklow Golf Club.  There was a mixture of 10 and 18 holes played, congratulation to all the winners. The rain stopped as the first players went to the tee box, the rest of the day was sunny but windy.  Everyone had a great day.  Paula, Mary, and I tried to recruit three new members but no luck duck (photos attached)

The revised tee times (11.20 – 14.36, resulting in 3 balls every 7 minutes) came into effect from 5 March.

It is imperative that we ensure that there is no slow play.  Every member should ensure that they are ready to play at least 15 minutes before their tee-time.  The tee-time is not the time that you arrive at Leopardstown assuming that there will be delay and you will not start on time.  If a member has not arrived, please do not wait on them, commence your round of golf.

Upcoming events/activities:

  • The Spring Lamb competition is continuing, it is due to finish on 23 April.
  • The Golfer of the Year competition was due to start on 12 March but due to an unplayable course there was no golf. The first round of this competition will now start next Saturday – 9th April with the competition finishing on 12 November.
  • The Easter Special with 3 prizes in each Category will be held on 16th

There will be a prize for the best Easter Bonnet so roll up your shelves, get your glue guns out and start crafting.

Happy Golfing, Thanks, Karen
