Divot & Pitch marks

We have purchased a sand bag and scoop for all members to be able to repair their divot and pitch marks as they are made. Please take one of each and keep in your golf bag. We appeal to all members to help keep our course in top condition.

 

As a result of the vast amount of rainfall in recent weeks the course is soft. Please take care at all times to avoid slipping or injury.

 

Full Catering Services have resumed in the Club House.

It is advisable to book a table – (045) 521433

 

Membership Subscriptions 2021

The annual bill run unfortunately collides with Christmas & Santa’s visit each year as your renewal date is the 1st of January. We have been preparing the billing run and those of you who are using Club V1 will notice the amount owing.  The amounts shown are including monies outstanding as of 1st of December – the December standing orders have not been posted yet. The bills will be emailed where possible and posted to those with no email address. As we have upwards of 500 Members across all categories this is a great cost saving measure. Standing Order is a great way to budget your subscription over 12 months and is always available to members.

 

Should you decide that you are not renewing at Cill Dara, please call the office 045521295 or email cilldaragolfclub@gmail.com to ensure that the transfer to your new club is as seamless as possible.  As always thank you for being a great member of Cill Dara as we all look forward to a nice, safe Christmas and a bright New Year in 2021.

 

Golf Ireland Update

FAO All Members

This update is for clubs in the Republic of Ireland, however all clubs are included for information purposes.

Note re Members playing in their Home Club during Level 3

Level 3 of the Government’s ‘Living with COVID’ framework requires people to stay in their county with the exception of travel for specific essential reasons as outlined on www.gov.ie.

Up to now, all sporting organisations have advised their participants not to travel outside of their county to engage in sporting activity, save for some very limited exceptions.

However, we have been acutely aware of many instances where these rules have prevented a significant number of club members from accessing the facilities of their golf club due to residing on the other side of a county boundary. This applies in particular to clubs which are situated close to county boundaries, for example Dun Laoghaire (Dublin-Wicklow), Carton House (Dublin-Kildare-Meath), Portumna (Galway-Offaly-Tipperary), Enniscrone (Sligo-Mayo), Waterford (Waterford-Kilkenny) and a number of others.
 
Having discussed this issue with regard to these and other examples with Sport Ireland, we can confirm with immediate effect that members can continue to travel to their Home Club to play golf.
 
It is important to note that this dispensation applies to local travel only, and only to home club members. It also remains the case that golfers are not permitted to travel beyond their county to play golf at a club which is not their home club while the Level 3 travel restrictions remain in place.

From 18 December until 6 January, all domestic travel restrictions will be lifted and golfers can travel to play golf beyond their county boundaries in all circumstances during this time.
