Quiz – How well do you know your Golf Course?

The Spring Update contains a quiz on page 5, which will test your knowledge of the course. Entry is free and we will present a small prize on the first Saturday of Open Week so please have your entries in by Friday 28th June at the latest. You can download the entry sheet here.
One entry per person only please – place it in the box provided in the bar.

Golf Course is a Haven for our Wild Birds

Skerries resident and Birdwatch Ireland member, Frank Prendergast, walked the course on Tuesday morning and identified (by song and/or sight) the list of birds in the accompanying pdf.

There are small photos of each species, downloaded from Birdwatch Ireland’s website and the file includes links to their detailed information on each bird.

Later in June Frank will walk the course at evening time and hopes to identify some of the shyer birds by hearing the call of their newly hatched.
We are hoping to repeat the exercise later in the year and into winter to build up a fuller database of species, whose song and flight we can enjoy and appreciate as we play golf and develop our golf course.
