President's (Eamon Callanan) Prize: Friday, Saturday and Sunday July 3, 4 and 5.
No Competitions until June 29: The men's committee had decided to resume competitions from Tuesday June 9 but following a directive from the Golfing Union of Ireland on Friday competitions are now allowed under phase 2.
The GUI statement reads: On Wednesday 3 June, at their most recent meeting, the Expert Group on the Return to Sport decided, on public health grounds, that no competitive sport should take place during Phase 2 of the Irish Government’s Roadmap for the Re-Opening of the Economy and Society. Following further engagement with Sport Ireland, the GUI and ILGU can confirm that this sport-wide measure means that competition activity in golf clubs in the Republic of Ireland during Phase 2 of the roadmap is not permitted. Although we had indicated to Sport Ireland some weeks ago that we had intended on including competitions from Phase 2, the Expert Group has been considering Protocols on a Phase by Phase basis and this week’s meeting focused on Phase 2. We are glad to confirm that the Expert Group has approved the Unions’ proposal to allow four-balls in Phase 2.
Club singles: The club singles matchplay competition (O'Keeffe Cup) will resume shortly. The draw for which is posted in the men's locker room. The club fourball will not be held this year.
