Condition of Course – Please do your bit
The winter is a particularly hard time for the course in terms of its condition. Please ensure you are doing your bit to keep the course in as good a condition as possible at this time of year. Please take the divot repair bags with you each time you play and encourage your playing partners to do so as well. Use the sand in the divot repair bags to repair not just your own but any other divots you come across on the course. Please make an extra effort to repair pitchmarks – they take a long time to heal if left unrepaired. Give the bunkers a good and even raking after you play from them and why not pick up any rubbish that you find around the course and put it in the bins. New Ross is a members’ club and it’s the responsibility of all of us as members to look after the course.
Pace of Play
Following on from the piece featured in the last week’s email on the Pace of Play, a link is included below to the R&A’s guidelines on a player’s responsibilities in relation to the pace of play. It’s a practical guide and is worth a look. If we can all do a little to make sure the pace of play is reasonable it will help us all to enjoy the game more.
Find the Joker – Jackpot €857
This week’s Find the Joker draw winner was Noel Merrigan who opened envelope No. 13 to reveal the two of diamonds. The next draw takes place on Saturday Feb 28th at 6pm (at the Captain’s Drive In). Entries cost €2 and are taken in the bar. The draw winner will take home €30 if they don’t find the joker and win the jackpot of €857. Thank you to all who support this fundraiser.
