Mayo Crystal Connacht Golf Awards 2012: This week the Club has been honoured as The Best Presented Course 2012 in recognition of the council and members efforts in which the course was prepared and presented in 2012. The Club hosted both National and Provincial - Championships and Cups & Shields Events during 2012 beginning last April with the All-Ireland Schools Championships and we were lauded for the condition of the Course at the time given the harsh Spring and slow growth we all experienced. This was followed by hosting in early July, the Irish Junior Cup Northern Qualifiers and once again the Greens and overall Course condition was simply outstanding. Later again in July we played host to the Provincial Qualifiers and Finals of the Irish Junior Foursomes and yet again the standards being achieved in Course Presentation by the Club and its Ground-staff over a sustained period were truly wonderful. The awards were held on Tues 27th November in the Abbey Hotel. We thank sponsors Mayo crystal and the Connacht Gui for recognising the hard work by our ground staff.
