What a day of golf we had for Captains final day on Sunday at Rathcore. Well done to Eoin McArdle for a wonderful win with a final round of 69. 
180 played in the Captains over the two weekends which was the biggest attendance ever for the club. The weather was spectacular and the course was even better - thanks to Andy & Team for working the magic yet again.

FTAO: All Men Members

Our Men's Captain, Pat Dunne, invites you to play in his Captain's Prize on Sept 12th./13th with the lucky 51 and ties qualifying to play in the final round on Sunday Sept. 20th. The time sheet will open at 9pm Thursday 3rd. Sept.
There will be a non-qualifier competition on Sunday 20th. for those that don't make the cut.
The cost for both days is €35 and includes food at the 10th. on both days. There are 20+ prizes to be won over the two weekends so hopefully all members will be kept interested.
To be eligible to win the Captains prize a player must have played a minimum of three qualifying events in 2020.
Due to COVID restrictions the Captains dinner is deferred into October. However, we will have an awards get-together outside at the food bar after the golf on Sunday Sept. 20th. at approx. 7pm. Refreshments will be served.
No doubt there will be two great weekends of golf for this highlight event of the club season. Pat wishes all members the very best of luck and looks forward to seeing you all there.

Due to the latest COVID-19 restrictions it is with regret that we announce the cancellation of the Captains prize events over the next two weekends. Our Captains, Kate & Pat felt that, due to the lockdown implemented for our adjacent counties, and in the best interest of the club and its membership, it was prudent to defer it to a later date. Particularly, this decision is in consideration of those members residing in the counties under the lockdown restrictions currently.
Regular competitions will be held as normal over the coming weekends. Our thoughts are with those members who are restricted from travelling to the club and we hope to see you again there soon when it is safe to do so.
We will look to reschedule the Captains prizes as soon as it is safe to do so subject to COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines.
As always, we thank all our members for your understanding and continued support. Stay Safe!
Our Captains, Kathleen Broad & Pat Dunne, invite all members to play in their Captains prize this month.
Round 1 of Mens Catains Prize is Sunday August 16th. Timesheet opens on Thursday August 6th. @ 9pm.
Round 2 and Ladies Captains Prize is on Saturday August 22nd.
There will be lots of great prizes to be won and we look forward to an exciting couple of weeks of golf at the club.

RATHCORE GOLF CLUB TRANSFORMATION PROJECT

This is just one element of the new face of the club. All the signage and notices at the club house and around the course are also transformed in keeping with the new image.

In line with the statement from the Taoiseach and the clarification from the GUI/ILGU immediately afterwards we have to close the course and practice range to all members with immediate effect. This is if course regrettable but in the  current situation which we now find ourselves we have no alternative.

We hope all our members and their families stay safe and well during this difficult time.
