Irish Mixed

Congratulations to our Irish Mixed team again, this time taking on Rockmount in round two. Not as straight forward as the pervious match.

Antrim lost the first match and won the second with the remaining 3 groups being all square or 1 up with only 3-4 holes remaining, it was all to play for and was any ones game. Group 4 headed up 17th 1 up and with soft hands Frankie chipping it near the pin sealed the deal and put Antrim into a 2-1 Lead. Group 3 headed down the 18th all square with Group 5 coming up 17th 1 up. Group 3 finished all square and headed down the 1st again while group 5 teed off down 18th still 1 up but then up steps wee Lady Captain Vickie and drills a lovely putt to end the 1st playoff hole ending the game 3-1 to Antrim.

Antrim are now into the Quarter Finals and will play Moyola or Carnalea

Big thank you to all the team, especially team Captain Kim Fee

Good luck in the next round!!

Captains Day 2018

For anyone who missed a great night for Tony’s captains night, here are a few photos

Allen Park Restaurant Update

Unfortunately Manns will be withdrawing the restaurant service at Allen Park during the week due to lack of custom and will only be opening on Saturdays and Sundays.  They will honour all existing bookings and will continue to take group/society bookings on a case by case basis.  Manns will be asking for bookings of no less than 15 people to make it cost effective.

This is unfortunate and disappointing news but no business can expect to run at a loss and sustain it for any great length of time.

Update on Irish Golf’s – One Governing Body

GUI and ILGU Boards Agree Proposal to Form One Governing Body for Golf in Ireland

 

– Proposal arrived at following extensive consultation and discussions

– Clubs expected to vote on Proposal later this year, following briefings

 

Following extensive discussions and consultation, the Boards of the Golfing Union of Ireland (GUI) and the Irish Ladies Golf Union (ILGU) have approved a Proposal which provides for the formation of a single governing body for Golf in Ireland.

 

The ILGU and GUI will now prepare for EGMs of the organisations at which affiliated clubs will vote on the Proposal.

 

In the coming months, Information Packs containing important details regarding the new organisation  will be prepared and issued to affiliated clubs. The packs will include the Proposal and all information pertinent to clubs, in the form of an Executive Summary and Frequently Asked Questions.

 

The EGMs are expected to be held before the end of 2018, with the club briefings being held in advance of the vote date. The ILGU and the GUI will hold separate club briefings with their respective ladies and men’s clubs in advance of the vote date. The exact date(s) for the briefings and the EGMs will be agreed by the respective Boards, with affiliated clubs being notified in due course.

 

If the clubs of the ILGU and GUI support the proposal, a transitions phase will commence during which the GUI, ILGU and Confederation of Golf in Ireland (CGI) will be wound down and the new body will be established to carry out all activities currently undertaken by the three organisations.

 

For any further information on the project, please visit www.onegoverningbody.com or email  onegoverningbody@gmail.com

Issued by Sinead Heraty (CEO, ILGU) and Pat Finn (CEO, GUI)
