Templemore Golf Club News; 


Club Captain Tom McGrath “Let The Games Begin”

As we come to the end of Phase 2 of the “unlocking process” it is only right that the terrific efforts of all members are acknowledged.  Credit to all for turning out in such numbers and for your compliance with the various directives and protocols laid down for us.  Special thanks to those who have given so freely of their time at the “front desk”. Very few problems were encountered, and all were resolved quietly.  Going forward it is MANDATORY that all players register at that desk before going out on the course.  This is necessary for traceability purposes and must be complied with.  Thanks to all involved in having the Course and Clubhouse surrounds in such great order.  Over the past 6 weeks an average of 65 people has played the course each day!!  Players are reminded to respect the facilities and ensure that your visit benefits rather than detracts from them. Replace and repair as you go whether you did the damage or not. Slow play is not a major issue, but slower players or those searching for a ball should call faster players through.  Bookings must now be made through the “Handicap Master” System. Through using it members will become familiar with its various functions with help and advice available, if required.  “The Spring League” resumes from Monday 29th with Week 1 concluding at the weekend.  Week 2 is also open for play and runs for 12 days.  Full details are on display at the “front desk” along with details and advice on recording and returning scores.  Bunkers are in play BUT placing is allowed within 6 inches.  Players should smooth the disturbed area, but only AFTER playing their shot.  Full course 18-hole events resume on Saturday / Sunday 4th/5th July.  It is to be hoped that these competitions will be fully supported.  Play will be in 3 balls at 15 minute intervals to facilitate turning. There will be no “Casual Play” on Sundays until after 3.00pm.  From 1st July a “NO SUB NO PLAY” policy will be in operation.   A special word of welcome to the many new and returning members in our midst.  We trust that you will enjoy the facilities and derive benefit and satisfaction from what we have to offer.

Let the games begin!!!

Club Captain Tom McGrath.
