July Update Charleville Golf Club.
Since our last update in mid June competitive golf commenced after the 29th June in
accordance with GUI covid protocol and rules.Everyone was eager to play and large numbers
have entered all the competitions, including many new members.
4 mens golfer of the year (GOY) qualifier competitions & 2 ladies GOY have been completed –
updates on GOY positions will be available on the website in the coming days.
Congratulations to Nola Murray on winning the Men’s Captains( Gay McEvoy) prize to the
ladies and Paul Moffet the ladie’s Captains(Phil Curtin) prize to the men.
Unfortunately due to covid restrictions we are unable to run prize giving events at the current
time,so we will instead issue vouchers to the prize winners which can be collected at the
pro-shop. It is hoped later in the year , depending on regulations and our facilities that we will
have a formal presentation to all the cup competition winners to acknowledge their
achievements.Also results of competitions are delayed due to restrictions on handling score
cards, this means a 1 to 2 day delay in providing them.
August is going to be a very busy month. The August bank holiday Fundraiser scramble (
sponsored by Kerry group) has been a great success with a large entry, unfortunately Friday
was washed out but the rest of the weekend turned out good. Thank you to all who supported it.
