WITH EFFECT FROM OCTOBER 1ST 2017 THERE WILL BE ONLY TWO METHODS FOR PAYMENT OF ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTIONS –IN FULL BY DECEMBER 31ST 2017 OR BY PRIOR ARRANGEMENT TO OPT FOR A DIRECT DEBIT FROM MEMBERS’ BANK ACCOUNTS OVER ANY PERIOD UP TO 10 MONTHS COMMENCING IN OCTOBER.

NO OTHER METHOD OF PAYMENT OF SUBSCRIPTIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE.

Course Update

One of the many charms of the game of golf is that is that it is played in a variety of settings and on a variety of terrains. As members of Arklow Golf Club we are privileged to be custodians of one of the 58 links courses in Ireland.

 

Links golf although difficult by nature can give enormous pleasure from its many aspects that stand out. These include the beauty of the tall fescues blowing in the wind or the thrill of exploding out of a deep revetted bunker or trying to punch a ball low into a strong head wind and holing a long putt on a fast-contoured green. These are aspects of links golf that live long in the memory and bring us all back in the hope that the golfing god’s will smile down on us and we have the round of our dreams.

 

Links golf courses will become even more unique as both the links terrain and existing golf courses disappear as they lose the ongoing battle with the sea. Coastal erosion and rising sea levels continue to threaten links courses especially low lying courses like Arklow. It is up to us to help preserve our links so it can be enjoyed now and in future generations.

 

It is planned in future newsletters to cover both the management and maintenance plan in operation for our links, because how we manage the course has both a fundamental impact on the future success of the club and determines the type of golf to be played. As part of our winter maintenance the cutting back of the heavy rough has begun and will continue into March along with a spraying program to help kill the problem grasses.
