we have decided to extend the Captains’ Charity Raffle until the distance restrictions have been lifted and we have all had a chance to return to playing golf. To those who have already purchased their ticket, thank you for your patience.
Captains Austin and Trudy have agreed to offer a 2021 subscription as part of their Joint Captains’ Charity Raffle.
In a time when fundraising income is difficult to maintain for all charities, we will donate 30% of the money raised by this raffle to the Skerries Branch of the Society of Saint Vincent De Paul.
The 2020 Raffle will have a top prize of €1,000.
Our target is a minimum of 250 ticket sales at €40. It is open to Members and Non-Members alike. The winner can either take a prize of €1,000 or, if a Club Member, offset it against the subscription portion of their 2021 membership fee.
In order to purchase a ticket Members should open the timesheet (in the usual way) for 2nd August and enter their name in a space as for a club competition. To enter the draw more than once, do so by booking in a guest on the same line.
Members should ensure they have enough money on their card to pay for their entry. As a Member, you can put money on your card (as per the email that issued to all members on 23rd April) by using the Club V1 App. Alternatively, you can ring the office on Monday’s or Thursdays to have money put on your card or email email@example.com the office will call you back.

We are all, looking forward to the return of golf, it seems like such a long time since we were on our fairways. Our course is looking fantastic and while we all want to get on the time sheet and start playing again, we do need to do so with caution.
The GUI and ILGU in conjunction with the Government have agreed on a set of protocols to be put in place for Golf Clubs to re-open in the first phase of easing of the Covid 19 restrictions.
There are very clear guidelines and a roadmap to be followed, it is in your interest to read these and become familiar with them by means of protecting yourself and others from this harmful virus.

In particular, the two higher level shots offer unique views south (from 225 feet above the first tee) and north (from 200 feet above the fifth).
Hopefully we will see the course from the ground very soon!
