Golf Club Choir

Background

Back in January 2008, Bernard Collins, Noreen Coffey and Noel P O’Sullivan got together and agreed it was high time that Killarney Golf Club had a Male Voice Choir it could be proud of !
Well known vocalists from within the Club were mustered together, and on a wet and windy night in
Feb 2008, after closing time , came together. Tenors, Baritones and Bases were quickly sorted, and it
wasn’t long before melodies and harmonies started to flow !

Weekly practices followed at the Malton Hotel and before long a level of competency was reached to enable

the Choir to give its first recital at the Club in mid May 2008. This first outing was a great success and
was followed by a further performance at the President’s Dinner at the Clubhouse.

Since 2008, the Choir has progressed significantly and performs two Concerts annually at the Church of Ireland.
The Choir also performs regularly at the Cathedral and Fossa Church and at the Annual Mass for deceased

Members at the Golf Club. Regular performances take place at Nursing Homes at Christmas time.
Other performances included World Mental Health Choir Day and Monsignor Flaherty Concert night.
It is the policy of the Choir to perform, whenever possible , for charitable and voluntary organisations.

The choir is now entering phase two of its development , and is actively recruiting new members .
If you are interested, feel free to contact either Bernard Collins ( 087 9872804 ) or Mike Leahy ( 087 9104546 )
or any member of the choir.

Golfer Safety at the Heart of the Club

The club has recently taken delivery of a number of AED (Automated External Defibrillator) devices, many of which are now carried by the club’s rangers while out on the course.

Every year in Ireland there are approximately 3500 cardiac arrests out of hospital but just 1% of these victims survive.  The statistics can be improved substantially as more people are trained in CPR and in the use of an AED.  Last year, the club had a number of staff members undertake training in resuscitation and in the use of these devices.

Photographed below are course rangers James Arthur, Brendan O’Toole and James O’Neill.

 

Nancy Lopez

We were delighted and honoured to welcome golfing legend Nancy Lopez to the club recently.  Nancy led a group of US golfers on a golfing tour to Ireland that included a round on Killeen.

Over the course of her career,  Nancy won 48 LPGA tour events including 3 Major Championships.

R&A Ruling for KGFC

The Honorary Secretary of Killarney Golf & Fishing Club asked the R&A for a ruling on deer hoof marks on our greens

Below is both the question asked and reply from the R&A:
At a recent committee meeting I was empowered to ask for adjudication from yourselves in relation to Deer Hoof Prints on our greens (we have several hundred native red deer) We note rule 16.1.C & rule 33.8 which would require R&A authorisation

Answer from R&A:
Provided the marks are clearly identifiable as deer hoof prints on the putting green, it is permitted to have a Local Rule declaring the hoof prints to be ground under repair and provide relief under Rule 25-1b(iii). However, the Local Rule should provide relief for the lie of the ball, area of intended swing and the line of putt only. It should not include interference to the stance, as it is the irregularity of the lie and line of putt that is the issue, rather than an irregular of stance due to the hoof print.

Notices to inform members will be posted on the notice boards in the club house.
