Kenmare GC are going to reward consistency this winter with an Open November Eclectic Men’s competition. There will be four open comps in November, with each players best score on each hole recorded over the month, and a pair of weather proof golf shoes (as well as weekly prizes) for the overall winner.
So stick with it …happy golfing!
