Spring is in the air!
Despite some inclement weather, the golf season is well and truly up and running, with lots going on. Kenmare Golf Club are running mens and ladies Spring Leagues through February and March. The Spring League is great – nothing like a league table and team spirit to get people out.
We hosted a rules night open to ALL golfers in Kenmare on Feb 10thwith Moira Lynnott of the ILGU. This and the (slightly controversial) rules quiz afterwards were a great success.
Our ladies club had an Abba night in January also.
Thanks to all the members who donated at the Men’s Christmas Party, and the Ladies Grannies vs Non-Grannies competition, and to Davy and Carmel for their great fundraising work.

On top of this we’re starting to get ready for inter-club golf, and getting ready for the 2019 Junior Season. And Kenmare GC are getting ready for March 5th, when we are officially installed as host club for the Kerry Federation of Golf. Busy times!
Happy Golfing .. Get your clubs out!

Over Christmas Kenmare Golf Club raised €1055 towards the Kerry Palliative Care Unit at Tralee General Hospital, adding to the funds raised by Davy Breen’s Monster Walk for the same cause.
Davy and Carmel Breen accepted the cheque from Kenmare Golf Club Captain Paudie Kelleher and Lady Captain Grainne Crowley.IMG_3143
