Spring is on the way and its time to tidy things up in preparation for the upcoming season. There are lots of things happening this year and we would like to have our club looking spectacular. With this in mind we are looking for volunteers to help. If you have a few hours to spare, are willing to help and wish to have a great sense of involvement in your club, we would like to hear from you. The tasks in hand are light in nature so yes it’s not just for men, we would like to see the ladies involved too. We are hoping to give attention to the overall appearance such as tidying flower beds, picking up leaves along the driveway, a little bit of painting etc. The list is not exhaustive so if you have any other ideas for improvement please let us know. If you wish to become involved please contact Noel Brennan on 0871202484. Noel will be delighted to hear from you.

This is your chance to give back to our great club.

The Ladies Section played Yuletide Nines in beautiful sunshine on Tuesday 3rd December.  This event was sponsored by Angela Dunleavy and we are very grateful for this.  It was a shotgun start at 1.30 p.m. followed by a very tasty meal provided by Karl.  There was also lots of carol singing, banter and plenty of prizes, collected on the night.  Pro-shop vouchers, fabulous hampers and turkey vouchers were all collected by those lucky enough to win.  Congratulations to all who picked up prizes.   Well done to our Ladies Committee for organising this most enjoyable event.

Saturday December 7th and Santa comes to Castlewarden.  Up to fifty children will be meeting Santa and receiving their present from him and that will be followed by entertainment for the children.  Always a very popular and enjoyable social occasion in Castlewarden.   Lunch will be served in the bar afterwards.  This is a very busy event and if you haven't booked a table it is a good idea to do so by contacting the bar staff.

A big thank you to Teresa Flynn and Tom McHale for decorating our clubhouse.  The decorations just get better and better each year.

Congratulations and well done to President Robert Carroll on hosting a very enjoyable evening on Saturday night 12th October.  There was a packed clubhouse for the event.  Karl and  his team provided a a very tasty dinner to his usual high standard.  A most entertaining by Robert speech kept everyone entertained and that followed with good fun and banter.  All in all it was an excellent social event and brings President Roberts most successful year to an end.
A big thank you to our Professional Brian O'Brien for arranging this years trip (yet again).  The group went to Novo Santa Petri Spain for the fourth consecutive year due to its huge popularity.  A great time was had by all, both golfers and non golfers alike.
