The Men’s committee have recently received a number of requests to give members the opportunity to play in a 9 hole qualifying competition rather than the standard 18 hole option that currently exists on a Saturday. To this end we are going to introduce a 9 hole qualifying competition on a trial basis from Sat 26th May.

There will be 4 designated lines on the timesheet for this competition. One at the end of the morning session, One at the end of the middle session and Two at the end of the afternoon session. There will be a separate prize for the nine hole competition which will be determined by the number of entries +on the day. The entry fee will remain at €6 payable by smartcard. To enter you must register the 9 hole option on the swipe machine and you must play in one of the designated 9 hole slots. The current number of 18 hole slots will not be affected by the introduction of the new 9 hole slots.

We really hope to encourage members who feel that 18 holes are too time consuming on a Saturday or members who would just prefer to play 9 holes will support this initiative.This will hopefully increase the number of members enjoying the course and clubhouse on a Saturday.

Eligible Juniors may also book the 9 hole slots from 8pm on Thursday in the same way as they currently do when booking 18 holes.
