Kanturk Golf Club Captains Addresses
This years Kanturk Mens Club Captain is Patsy Pigott. See below his address to the club.
It’s been a tough first 6 months of 2020 for Golfers. January till March we had persistent rain and since then we’ve had Covid 19.
Fortunately we were able to get playing social golf obeying Covid rules from May 18th.
But fortunately every cloud has a silver lining and we have over 80 new members. I would personally like to welcome all these new members and wish them a good golfing year. We are fortunate to have Diarmaid Frazer golf professional giving lessons at the club for the coming months.
From next Monday 29th June we will be able to start club competitions. There will be changes in the way you register your score, you will get instructions on these changes.
Monday & Tuesday timesheet will be for 4 balls & the rest of the week will be 3 balls except Sunday evening after 3.30pm it will be 4 balls for social golf & families.
Going forward we hope to have a singles competition on Monday & Tuesday and another competition on Thursday & Friday and a separate one on Saturday & Sunday. Thank you to all our great sponsors who are very much appreciated.
Best of luck with the rest of the golfing season, obey the rules, stay safe & most of all enjoy your Golf.
Your Captain Patsy Pigott
This years Kanturk Ladies Club Captain is Deirdre . See below her address to the club.
Dear Lady Members,
What a strange few months we’ve experienced! We have been fortunate that the game of golf was permitted to resume so early! While there are many aspects of life and interaction, and specifically golf related activity, that can no longer operate as before, we will carry on as best we can.
We had revised our 2020 Fixture List assuming golf was proceeding as planned to Phase 2 .Alas, that was not to be the case. At this point in time, competitive golf will now resume on June 29th…..stay tuned!
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new members as well as the Get into Golf ladies who have become full members this year. Unfortunately, we will not be having draws for the foreseeable future. For our new members, this means it will be more challenging for them to mingle. If you see a new face, extend a warm Kanturk welcome , maintaining social distancing!
Some of our new members are inexperienced in the game. They will need our help and support to learn the ropes. There is a sheet in the locker room with some guidelines about general golf etiquette and dress code. Please feel free to take one for reference.
The BRS booking system will continue to be in operation full time now, 7 days a week. We all need to be registered on the system in order to reserve our tee times. If you have lost your card, cannot register or have any issues with this, please get in touch with Nuala Meade ( Handicap Secretary) or myself.
We reman optimistic that the golf year will proceed, albeit in a manner not quite as familiar to us!
Wishing you all continued good health and good golf!
Lady Captain Dee
