Boyle Golf Club
Mother Nature has remained against the club in recent times with no course action to report. Realistically, it may be another two weeks at least before the course is fit for play. Letters regarding membership subscriptions for the year will be issued via post or email in the coming week. The club encourages members to submit their fees as early as possible although we realise it can be a busy time of year financially for people. To aid with this there are flexible payment plans in place to ease any strain. Contact Michael at [email protected] for more details. An application has been submitted to the CGI, the national body responsible for promoting golf participation, in relation to assistance in holding a Get into Golf Programme for 2016. This includes a 5 week school’s programme and also golf classes for adults. Subject to its acceptance, we will be seeking a number of members to help in various ways.
