COVID-19 & COMPETITIONS POSTPONED

Dear members,

Please note that as of the 14th March 2020 our golf competitions have been suspended.  This decision was not an easy one to take but the safety and welfare of both members and Committee members is a priority.    A number of considerations were taken into account before arriving at this decision.  As we are all aware, in the current environment it is vital that we do everything to ensure that the spread of the virus is minimised.   When a competition takes place Committee members are subjected to the handling of 60+ score cards which have already been handled by numerous people.   The Society laptop is inter-changed between Committee members on a weekly basis where the screen/keyboard is again handled by various Committee members.   In the circumstances, I believe that there is no option but to cancel competitions until further notice. While Leopardstown remains open you are more than welcome to play a friendly game of golf.   I will keep the timesheet operating so that you can book your tee-times each week.   If anything changes and Leopardstown closes I will keep you posted.

For now, please be careful and keep yourselves safe.

Best wishes.

Paula
Lady Captain 2020
