Best of luck to all members playing in President Bob Campbells Prize this weekend. The competition can be played either Friday, Saturday or Sunday.  Presidents Prize to Five Day members will be  held on Friday 24th July.  Our course is in splendid condition at present and we hope you enjoy your game.  Thank you to President Bob for our first major competition since we re-opened.  Hopefully the weather will be kind on all days. Stay Safe.

A major fund raising event will take place in Castlewarden on June 29th.  All proceeds will go towards the Jack and Jill Foundation.  Four of our younger members, two male and two female, known as the Castlewarden Dream Team will play 72 holes in one day.  It’s a big task but the Dream Team, with a combined handicap of 5 are up for it. 

These young players have come up with this idea themselves and all funds raised will go to Jack and Jill.  We hope to raise €2,500.  Every €16 made will give a family one hour of much needed nursing respite care.  

The team will tee it up at 6.00 a.m. and start their last round at approx. 6.00 p.m. on the day. 

While that is going on we are having a four person Invitational Champagne Scramble.  Cost of entry is €10 for members and €20 for guests and visitors.  It is the first competition after the closure and we hope it will be an enjoyable day.  There will also be Nearest the Pin on Hole 13 and 17.  All prizes are sponsored by Noel Herterich.

You can also sponsor the team using this link www.idonate.ie/72holeChallenge

Why not come along on 29th June, enjoy the game on our fabulous course, see the dream team in action, bring a friend and have a great day out while doing something worthwhile for Jack and Jill.

Timesheet opens at 7.30 p.m. on Thursday 18th June.  

Welcome back to all members, we hope  you are all keeping well.  Its great to see members back out on the fairways enjoying their golf.  The course is in excellent condition thanks to Glen and his team, Brian O’Brien and Diarmaid Marsh. 

We would like to particularly welcome our new members who have joined in the past number of weeks.  It is great to see new faces and we know they will be made very welcome by all members.  We are planning a get together for all new members when circumstances allow for such things.

While the bar and restaurant remain closed, Karl is serving his fine fare on the tenth every day, weather permitting.  Please support Karl and we look forward to our catering facilities re-opening in due course. 

The Pro Shop is well stocked, so please shop local if you need anything golf related.  Brian, as ever, is only too willing to help with selection of clubs, items of clothing etc.

It is also great to see our office up and running again, a big welcome back to Colette and Philippa and thank you to them both for keeping us in order!

It is unfortunate that we must wait until after June 29th to commence competition but safety is paramount and this will also give members time to get back in the swing of things. 

Our invitational week was scheduled to commence this weekend but this has been postponed until July 4th.  In the meantime, you are of course welcome to bring your friends for a game of casual golf.

Please adhere to the safety procedures in place at the moment.  These procedures are put in place to keep everyone safe and well.

On behalf of the President and Management Committee we would like to wish every member the best of luck in the coming season.  Stay safe and mind eachother.

As the course is now on the verge of re-opening, our club pro Brian O'Brien has put together a Restart Offer containing a Microgrip (Cobra) golf glove, a bag of tees and some small refreshments for only €15.

Drop Brian a message if you'd like to arrange the pickup prior to your tee-off.

The Protocols for the re-opening of golf courses initially for members only and on a restricted basis has been published by the GUI & ILGU. We are very lucky to be one of the first sports to be allowed play following the lockdown.

https://www.golfnet.ie/news/golfnet/4661/unions-publish-protocol-for-golfs-safe-return

The course is in immaculate condition, thanks to Glen and his team, Brian O'Brien and Diarmaid Marsh and we are very grateful for this.

We are almost finished working through these protocols and the Club will issue procedures specific to Castlewarden GC on Wednesday 13th May via email. It is essential that all members check their emails in order to be aware of this very important information.

The timesheet will go live on Wednesday 13th May at 7.30. Tee times will be at 14 minute intervals and with 3 balls participating. Casual golf only will be played for the first couple of weeks. Members must book via the timesheet at all times.

In the interest of everyone’s health and well-being, it is vital that we all comply fully with the new procedures regarding booking of tee times, arrival at the course, social distancing etc.

Management Committee

Lauren Walsh was recently featured in an interview which features on ILGU site.  Click on link below to listen.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cr42zIgRQx4&feature=youtu.be


Today is the 30th anniversary of the first day of play in the club and we should have been gathered to celebrate this great day. However the COVID-19 crisis has overtaken all the best laid plans and in the context of world events our disappointment is a small matter.

The management committee wish you all good health at this time and hope that today in your own way you can celebrate our clubs birthday. We continue to manage the course and administer the club through these strange times. So much effort had been required to adapt to the current situation not least of all the irony that so much effort is going into having no golf played whilst the course is in fantastic condition and the weather had never been so favourable. Strange times indeed.

We will be in good shape to return to normal business once we get the all clear to do so. We all look forward to meeting up and getting back to the trials and tribulations of our golf game. Please look after each other in the meantime and we will continue to update you as the situation evolves.

Bob Campbell

In line with the statement from the Taoiseach this evening and the clarification from the GUI/ILGU immediately afterwards we have to close the course and practice range to all members with immediate effect.    

 https://www.golfnet.ie/news/golfnet/4645/gui-ilgu-recommend-all-clubs-and-golf-facilities-to-close
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.
 
Karl has offered to provide beef burgers, chicken burgers  and soup at the 10th on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd March. Burgers €5 euro. Soup €3. Please support Karl in these difficult times. Please keep the required distance between you and your fellow golfers and respect eachother's space. Best of luck to all in St. Patrick's Cup. Enjoy the 10th.
In times like this, we are lucky we have golf.  Stay safe and enjoy your golf responsibly.

Congratulations to all winners so far this year.  Don’t worry if you haven’t been a lucky winner yet, there are still a few more draws left in 2019 so it could be you next. 

Just to re-cap where your money went this year.

New website.

Painting of foyer, upstairs landing, downstairs hall, corridor and entrance. 

Sanding of the floor in the bar.

Cleaning of carpet in hall, stairs and dining room. 

I think we all agree that this was money well spent and without the members draw it would not be possible to carry out this much needed facelift for our clubhouse. 

Well done to our Vice President Bob Campbell for arranging all of this. 

Castlewarden’s Lauren Walsh didn’t take long to announce herself on the collegiate scene in America after blasting her way to a seventh-place finish on her Wake Forest debut in South Carolina.

Lauren had seven birdies in a stunning final round of three-under par 69 to grab a tie for seventh at minus-five at the Cougar Classic.  Lauren’s contribution helped her new Wake Forest teammates to a second place finish in the team standings, one shot behind winners Vanderbilt.

It’s the continuation of some stunning summer form for Lauren after her top-10 finish as an amateur amongst the pros at last month’s ISPS Handa World Invitational at Galgorm Castle. Unsurprisingly, it was a performance that pleased Head Coach Kim Lewellen in Wake Forest.

The Management Committee were very sorry to learn that Dee from the office was moving on from her job with the club. Since Dee joined us in May 2016 her warm personality endeared her to all who had occasion to deal with her and ability and dedication was of the highest order . We wish Dee every success with her future plans and thank her for her time and commitment to Castlewarden Golf Club.

In finding a replacement for Dee we had a true challenge. But the gods have shone brightly on us and we are delighted to be able to confirm that from Weds 28th August Philippa Carr will taking up the position in the office. We are very lucky that we can replace one great member of staff with another.

Phillippa will be well known to you all and her commitment to the club and ability is out of the top drawer. We wish her well and look forward to her settling in and meeting you all over the coming weeks.

We are now back to full strength in the Office and we are indeed fortunate to have a strong team with Colette and Phillippa looking after all our Club Administration.

Congratulations to Michael Dwyer on winning gold at the World Transplant Games in Closehouse Golf Club, Newcastle.  This is a great achievement for Michael.  We at Castlewarden are very proud of you and this great achievement. Well done.

This years Nine & Dine came to a close last night with a very enjoyable evening in the Clubhouse.
