Some casualties on the fixtures list

Covid 19 has had a huge impact on our lives and on our golfing calendar. to this end we have had to revise the fixtures list to try and accomodate all our competitions. We have some casualties which could not be included due to their format, these are the club mixed foursomes, Galtee cup, and the Fr. McGrath Cup. It's a shame that we have to exclude them this year.

 The points for the 'Golfer of the Year' will include the Sunday competitions this year as we have to fit in as many sponsored competitions as possible.

 Members wishing to compete for the Lady Captains prize will have to have two 18 hole cards submitted.
