Golf notes

Athlone Golf Club

This weekend the Ladies Rule the Roost! Best of luck to Kay Vaughan on her Captain’s Prize weekend. All the ladies have been practicing hard and will have their last chance to fine-tune things on Friday evening in the traditional mixed foursomes. Gentlemen, you will be in big demand on Friday….now that doesn’t happen to often! See you there.

  There is plenty of team activity at the moment, so if available your support would be greatly appreciated.

  The Juniors are back in action every Monday, contact the club for more details. Could you have a McIlroy or Maguire sitting at home on the Playstation? Drag them from the TV and find out!
