Evening lakesiders not the news we wanted to here but this news item was published on the the golf net site by the GUI at 4 45 this evening. So 6 weeks folks, it will pass quickly so the best thing we can all do is follow all the current health advisories, keep active and study the new world handicap system (i would if i had a degree in logic from the Vulcan academy ). Live long and prosper ….oh and wash your hands.

“Following intensive engagement over the past 48 hours, we have been informed this afternoon by Sport Ireland that, very regrettably golf clubs must close under the new level 5 restrictions.​

Essential course maintenance is permitted to continue under level 5. We have sought clarity on the issue as to whether ranges/practice facilities can remain open for exempted activities. We will update clubs on this as soon as possible”
