Also present from the Club were Paul Eckersley and David McGuinness (Comp Sec). The monies were raised in a charity golf day, generously sponsored by Steve McGowan, plus a summer long birdie tree competition and other donations.
Starting from the 1st January 2016, the main Saturday competition will be extended over the whole weekend with Members able to enter only once on either Saturday or Sunday. The only exceptions will be the Castletown Cup during golf weekend, Club Championship and Aon Trophy, when the competition will be held over Saturday only. The Club will then hold a separate competition on the Sundays of these weekend. The Ladies will still retain their own reserved tee-times for their own competitions on Sundays. The outcome in terms of success will be reviewed towards the end of 2016. A sub-committee, chaired by the Captain (Chris Kelly), has set the rules for this competition and these will be monitored and reviewed as necessary.
