Like all sporting clubs at present ( and society in general) things are in a state of flux at present. We are hoping to play all our “ordinary” fixtures as planned in the coming weeks, i.e those that can be played without a social function or presentation afterwards, as the bar will remain closed as per the recommended anti-coronavirus measures. Unfortunately this means that the Sandra McCrann Memorial Competition will be deferred for a while as it would not be a fitting tribute to Sandra to run it without the social element.
Anyone playing golf at the moment is asked to respect the HSE and GUI guidance of maintaining a 2 metre distance at all times from other players and take the necessary hand hygiene measures. A game of golf should be a great outlet in what will undoubtedly be a difficult few weeks, but please bear in mind the above recommendations, it may be crucial in preserving the health of a fellow player, family member or friend.
