Raheny GAA Golf Society

The next Raheny GAA golf society outing is on Friday 27th May. We have the tee booked from 5pm to 6pm in St Annes golf club.
As usual, we will return to the GAA club afterwards for prize giving and some food.

If you want to play in this event please reply as soon as possible with the following information:
A) Your name
B) Your mobile number
C) Your handicap
D) Advise if you are a member of St Annes GC
E) Preferred playing partners (we will try to accommodate that where possible).

Depending on playing numbers we may make this a 14 hole stableford event this time (instead of the usual 12 holes).

The cost to enter is a very reasonable 30 euro which covers the golf, prizes and food back in the GAA club (also there is 10 euro discount off this for St Annes members). We are trying to keep the cost low to make this as attractive as possible for people to enter. All surplus funds are being raised for the benefit of Raheny GAA club with the goal of trying to raise 1,000 euro from these small outings this year.

Please note this is very much meant to be a social event and all non-regular golfers and non-golf club members are very welcome and encouraged to play in this too. We want to get everyone back to the GAA club after the golf to support the club bar.

Please come along and use this opportunity to get to know more people in the GAA club.
