Welcome to our first blog of 2017 and a happy belated new year to everyone and I hope that you are all looking forward to our outings in 2017 as much as I am.
My first task in 2017 is to ask if each of you can you please look at contacting any old members with whom you are still in touch with to see if we can get them back.
Then the second task can we all look to recruit a new member it would make a big difference and ensure our continuance as a society.
Visitors are also more than welcome but available tee times are always prioritised for members.
2017 Tour – La Touche Golf Society
Membership this year will be €50 as agreed by members at the AGM and this will be collected at our first outing. It is my intention to try to return this in the form of a year end “Turkey “dividend to all those who have fully supported the society during the year. This will of course depend on finances throughout the year so please get out and join in all our outings for the year.

You will see that there is a gap in activities for the month of August and I am hoping that we can get away somewhere for a night in between a couple of rounds of golf. Mike our Vice Captain is looking at this and the details will be finalised later. This will not be a counting round for GOY.
