Festive season underway at Carrick-on-Suir Golf Club

The festive season truly got under way on Saturday when a nine hole fancy dress scramble was played when some 25 teams participated providing a fantastic atmosphere that rolled on to late evening. Penalties were incurred @ 50c each during play in a effort to raised funds for charity which will be donated to St Vincent De Paul’s, our thanks to all involved. Because of the poor weather this last week it has been decided to extend round 3 of the winter league for a further week
