Powerscourt West - 29/05/2021

Powerscourt 2021 winner D.Dolan

KGS finally got the 2021 season off to a start with our 1st outing at Powerscourt West following the relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions allowing for certain sports to be resumed.

Our luck with the weather held as conditions were ideal. A mixture of sun and cloud in warm temperatures and little wind. It made for a pleasant outing for the 44 members and 1 visitor who made the trip and saw off Anthony 'Chippy' Quinn make the start to his captaincy.

The fast greens with tricky judgement calls caught many out on the day. David Dolan (right) judged best as he won the day with 40pts off 13. Dale Duignan was a close 2nd on 38pts with Christy King 3rd on 34pts.

Chippy Quinn on his Captains drive

Category winners were as follows: C1 - C.Foley, C2 - S.Ennis, C3 - M.Collins and C4 - R.Delea. The F9 went to K.Stewart with M.Lynch picking up the B9. Due to Covid restrictions there was no longest drive or nearest the pin. There were no fewer than six 2's carded and they were as follows: J.Monaghan, A.Quinn, D.Dolan, S.Ennis, J.Moore and D.Powell.

Full results are in the members area. We move onto Slieve Russell for our June outing.

Golf Has Resumed

As golfing has resumed, thankfully as of Monday 3rd May we have been able to arrange a fixture for our Society on Saturday 29th May in Powerscourt West. Tee Times and groupings will be posted as soon as the draw has been made. Looking forward to seeing you all again.

And stay safe.


Turkey Shoot Postponed

The Turkey shoot scheduled for 31/10/2020 in Knightsbrook has been postponed due to Level 5 lockdown restrictions as a result of increased Covid-19 cases throughout the country. The Government, in its wisdom or folly, have included Golf Clubs in their list of premises that should remain closed for the 6 week period of the lockdown.
This is despite the already social distancing aspect of the sport itself. Any attempt at holding the Turkey Shoot this year will be dependent on what level we emerge from this 6 week lockdown and whether we can find a GC able and willing to host us not to mention weather and course conditions etc. Given its proximity to Xmas also may not suit some members but others may be chomping at the bit to be unleashed.

We appreciate how frustrating this is for all but we are in it together and hope to emerge strong and vibrant next year hopefully with a safe working vaccine to enable us resume our normal social activities.

We will keep members posted. In the meantime - Stay Safe and keep to the published advice on how to avoid contracting the virus.


Captain's Day - Headfort New - 19/9/2020

Captains winner Tom Carroll (right) with acting Captain John O'Connor (2nd).

Our Captains Day competition was held in Headfort (New Course) on Saturday 19th September 2020. Thirty seven members took the field. Conditions were good with an overcast early mornig chill warming up with afternoon sunshine with a stiff breeze.

The day was subject to Covid-19 restrictions with no longest drive or nearest the pin prizes as per course instructions. There was no after dinner speeches or presentations. It was an enjoyable day nonetheless.

The honours went to local club member Tom Carroll who bagged the title with a score of 41 points playing off 10. He gets himself another jumper to add to his collection. The size gets bigger with every one. John O'Connor was second on 36 points cementing his place on top of the GOY table in this condensed season.

The full table of finishes is outlined below. Jim O'Neill won the F9 with the B9 going to Conor McGuinness. There was six 2's carded by 5 players as folllows: T.Carroll, C.King, C.Duignan (2), M.McNevin and T.Farrell.

A few members retired to the Village Inn under Covid-19 rules. Outstanding items for the year is the Turkey Shoot at a date and venue to be tied down and the announcement of our Golfer of the Year. The date for the AGM will then be arranged.

Knightsbrook (Palmerston Replacement) - 15/08/2020

Knightsbrook winner James Monaghan

As a result of the lockdown of 3 counties due to Covid-19, we had to change the planned outing from Palmerstown to Knightsbrook who were able to accommodate us at short notice. The weather was balmy and the course was in great nick. Twenty members and one visitor took up the challange.

James Monaghan won the day with a score of 39 points. Kieran McGurran was second with 37 points and John O'Connor was third on 35 points. Category winners were C1 - A.Powell, C2 - C.Reilly, C3 - M.Collins and C4 - R.Delea. James also bagged the longest drive with Kieran nearest the pin. Mattie Lynch won the front 9 with Michael Collins taking the back 9.

There were 3 2's winners and they were in the same 4 ball group no less and they were K.McGurran, C.Reilly and M.Lynch.

Once again due to social distancing rules in place there was no presentations or photos on the day although some did stay for food. Needles to say with Public Houses still under lockdown, there were no 19th hole post mortems either.

Next up is our Captain's Day in Headfort on Saturday 19th September.
