The members also took the opportunity to launch the new five-day membership, at a cost of € 600 a year.

'We are inviting golfers in the Greater Dublin area to consider joining our club as a five-day member for an annual subscription fee of € 600.
'We have a small entry fee of € 3,500 and the fiveday member will be entitled to play our great course Monday to Friday any time of the year.
'So if you play the course 12 times a year you are actually saving money, as our mid week green fees are currently e60,' he said at the Captains drive in.
Captain Andy McGuire and Lady Captain Breda Moore said that, like all golf clubs, Seapoint was keeping a close eye on costs and tackling the recession by offering value for money for members and visitors.
'We are working hard to stay out of the recession bunker.
'However we are fortunate that we are a buoyant and successful club.
'So the challenge for us is to attract more business and keep the annual subscriptions within reach of the members. We appreciate that many golfers have family and mortgage commitments and it is important that we keep their golfing costs down,' Andy explained.
This five-day membership price is a limited introductory offer and is on a first come basis.
