On Sunday the 24th of May at Sauirnes Golf we will be holding our next golf competition. The format is an Irish Greensome. We will have a 9.00 shotgun start and the entry fee is as usual: €13 for members of IRM Nike Golf and €45 for non members. Please remember that €5 of this fee is to be paid in cash and used towards the prize fund.
If you have never played an Irish Greensome the format is as follows:
A team is made up of two players, both players tee off and then switch golf balls and then play their second shots. After the second shots have been taken then the team selects the best ball and proceed to take alternate shots till the ball is holed out. It is a very fun format. The team´s handicap is adjusted by using 60% of low players handicap plus 40% of the higher players handicap. You may make up your own team but if you need a partner just let us know and we will match you up with another player.
If you wish to play, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, partners name and both players handicap.
The first stage of the IRM Nike Golf tour in April will
be held at Hacienda
Riquelme Golf on the 25th of April.
Extract from interview
with Chris Ahern (PGA Golf Professionals with IRM Nike Golf):
Q.- What is your favorite IRM Nike Golf
is a question I get asked all the time. It is not an easy question to answer
because I think all the golf courses are good and have their own unique
character. If I must choose my favorite it would probably be Hacienda
Riquelme Golf. I really like the layout and the setting of the course. It is a
demanding course off the tee and the greens are well protected. It has a
good variation of doglegs and some short par 4´s that are always fun.
