Now that the Covid 19 restrictions have been eased in County Kildare we would like to welcome all members back to playing.  It has been a busy week since we reopened.  We had the Vice Presidents Prize at the weekend and next weekend we have the qualifier for Captain Vincent Hendrick's prize.   There are lots of major competitions coming up so keep an eye on your emails for notifications.  

We would also like to welcome our new Assistant Pro Caolan Smith.  Caolan will be be assisting Brian in the Pro Shop.  We would ask all members to welcome Caolan and allow him time to adjust to his new role.  

May we also remind all members to remember to keep your social distance and adhere to all HSE guidelines while playing or entering the clubhouse.

Stay safe and enjoy your golf.
Thank you to all our members who live outside of Kildare for your continued adherence to the Government guidelines.  It is much appreciated.  We hope we will be back to normal playing shortly.  In your absence the course is being maintained to its usual high standard.  In the meantime, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Due to the particular warning by our acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn for people in Kildare, Laois and Offaly we are asking members to be extra careful.
Please enjoy your golf but remember your social distancing, hand hygiene, cough/sneeze etiquette.
Please stay at home if you are experiencing any Covid 19 symptoms.

On June 29th this year, we held our first  competitive game since re-opening.  It was a four person scramble and all proceeds were in aid of Jack and Jill Foundation.  Our dream team with a combined handicap of 5 played four rounds that day.  

We are very happy to confirm that the final total raised has now reached €7,089.50.  Thank you to those who played on the day and also those who sponsored and contributed on the website.  This amount will go a long way towards paying for many hours of nursing care for some very ill and needy children. Your support is very much appreciated.  A big thank you to the Dream Team who came up with this idea.  It was a great achievement for them and Castlewarden GC.  The cheque will be presented to Jack and Jill in due course.
It's a busy weekend this week in Castlewarden.

Good luck to all the men who qualified to play in President Bob Campbell's final day this Saturday.  Due to Covid 19 there will not be the usual prize presentation afterwards.  It is hoped to have a prizegiving in the near future, depending on Covid 19 regulations.  

Sunday 26th July is Lady Captain Deirdre Sheehy's final day for full members.  Best of luck to all the ladies taking part.  We were very lucky with the weather on Day 1 and hopefully we will have a repeat this weekend.  There will be a prize presentation on the patio weather permitting and ladies are invited to attend.  If the weather does not permit this to take place, the presentation will take place indoors, to prize winners only.

Best of luck to all men and ladies playing in these to very important golfing days.
