Club captain Pat Byrne hosted a lovely evening in the clubhouse on Saturday for all the volunteers who give so generously of their time to the club.
Pat was very grateful to everyone for their commitment and enthusiasm for the club.
A lot of great work is being done on the course at the moment, with two new tee boxes being completed on the 12th and 13th, these will certainly add new dimensions to both holes.
Vice captain Sean O'Connor and the team on the course are doing great work improving and extending some of the buggy paths around the course. Well done to all for their efforts!
Golfers got a welcome surprise on both Saturday and Sunday morning last when they saw there was no frost, despite the forecaster's predictions.
