Captain’s Day
Our Captains Day will take place on Friday, July 23 and Saturday, July 24. This is a great opportunity for all members both old and new to get together and celebrate the first year of the newly-formed Ballykisteen Golf Club and show support for our new club and its club captain for 2021 Mike Lynch.
The work done by Captain Mike and the committees over the last few months have helped ensure the Golf clubs future and made the transition of the running of the Golf Club a lot smoother and successful.
In Mike's year as Captain we have seen a growth in membership and a rise in green fees that have led the Golf Club to be in a very good position financially going forward. This has not come without a lot of hard work so we encourage everyone to enjoy what promises to be a fantastic two days and show support for our Captain for 2021 Mike Lynch
Inter Club Pierce Purcell
Congratulations to our Pierce Purcell team who defeated Castletroy last Sunday. Home advantage proved vital as we won all 3 matches at home. The final result was 4 matches to 1. We wish the team and the management of Owen O’Keeffe, Tom Holton, Evan McGrath and Chris Madden best of luck in next round.
Club Fundraiser
The next draw for our Club Fundraiser “Split the Pot” will take place next Sunday , July 18 at 7pm. Members are asked to support.
