Season coming to a close!
The 2018 year is coming to an end. But not just yet! The evenings are getting short, but it’s important to keep golfing, your membership is for a whole year, and it’s up to you to make the most of it.
Kenmare Golf Club are planning a busy November/December:
November ‘Eclectic’ competition running through the whole month
Full programme for December, with options to shorten competitions in the event of bad weather
And a cracking Captains trip away to the K Club in November, with 44 golfers travelling to take on a couple of Ireland’s best courses at the K Club.

Club AGMs
The Kenmare Golf Club ladies and men’s AGMs took place on Sunday November 11th. We would like to wish incoming captains Grainne Crowley and Paudie Kelleher the very best of luck for 2019. They both have very hard shoes to fill as outgoing captains Maura and John did brilliant jobs, but the positions are in very safe hands for 2019. Full committees and positions will be announced after our new teams meet in December.
