The Government, in conjunction with Golf Ireland, has issued a “return to golf protocol” for courses reopening on Monday 26th April. In the initial phase, the course will be open to members only playing social golf. Players must be from no more than 2 households and must book in advance through BRS. The clubhouse will remain closed and the Government has asked that we adopt a policy of “arrive-play-depart without delay”.
For those members wishing to book buggies, please ring Mary in advance. We will update you further when competition golf is likely to resume and when we can offer a bar and catering service.

With the return to golf in sight at the end of the month, we thought that we would whet you appetite, if that were needed. Our Greenkeeper, Paul and his team have been busy with course enhancements and improvements. Paul took time to take a few photos of the work. The major work of raising the 18th tee box, realigning the 18th fairway and construction of the new 15th tee box is now complete. The 13th tee box has been raised and levelled and the bunkers at the first have been remodelled. Roll on the return to golf!
