Joint Captains’ Charity Raffle – Extended until we are all back playing

Due to the phased return to golf

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.

As part of our ongoing fundraising efforts, …

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 admin@skerriesgolfclub.ieand the office will call you back.

Non-Members should enter via this link:   https://www.brsgolf.com/skerries/opens_home.php

New ARRIVAL

After many years of struggling along with our rough cutter, we have taken delivery of the new Toro 47000 rough mower, the timing could not have been better as the old mower finally packed up in recent weeks.
This new mower has 11’ (3.35m) width blades and can cut up to 10.6 acres per hour, this means we can now cut our rough-in 2.5 man-days as opposed to 7.5 man-days with the old machine.
A great step forward for our course, congratulations to the course committee and Carr Golf for the time spent investigating the various options and securing the machine.
We are all missing being out golfing and enjoying the wonderful surroundings of our course, see attached the photo of the Cherry Blossom in full bloom on the 8th fairway, hopefully,  it won’t be too long before we are out on the course again.

Keep Safe.
