Rathcore Golf Club

Over 120 members took part in a 4-person champagne scramble - shotgun start. Joe O'Donoghue, Michael Greaney, Noreen Sheridan and Sharon Conway kicked off the 2024 seasons with super drives down the 10th fairway. Well done to all involved in the organisation and congrats to Andy on the wonderful condition of the golf course.

Starting Tuesday April 16th at 6pm. 6 weeks lessons every Tuesday at 6:30pm with Club Pro. Plus 4 weeks on course activity with members.

Cost is €65 and to secure your place, contact Mary Ellen on 086 367 5525.

Looking forward to a new season at Rathcore starting with the Captains Drive-In on Mar 24th. It will be great to meet up with fellow members again after a very weather challenging winter of golf. Also looking forward to defending the Newsam Cup for a hat trick of victories.
The Mens September medal is this weekend September 25th./26th. and is the last major event of 2021. The medal is kindly sponsored by Joe Kenna of Fast Floor Screed. The committee would like to thank Joe for his continued support.
The men's Captain's Dinner is taking place at The Hamlet Court Hotel, Johnstown Bridge on Friday Oct. 1st. followed by presentations of prizes for the year. Dinner is at 8.00pm and presentation is at 9.30pm. Tickets for the dinner are available at the office.

Rathcore is a modern parkland… but please ignore the images that have probably just popped into your head.

Statement from GUI and ILGU

4.45pm Wednesday 21st October 2020

Following intensive engagement over the past 48 hours, we have been informed this afternoon by Sport Ireland that, very regrettably golf clubs must close under the new level 5 restrictions. Essential course maintenance is permitted to continue under level 5. We have sought clarity on the issue as to whether ranges/practice facilities can remain open for exempted activities. We will update clubs on this as soon as possible.

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.
We move on to the September medal next weekend kindly sponsored by The Hamlet Court Hotel. www.thehamlet.ie
