Due to the return to level 5 restrictions announced on Tuesday last, the Annual Drive In which was planned for January 3rd has been cancelled and hopefully will take place over St Patrick’s Weekend. Many thanks to Donal, Monika & Pavel for their help in planning this event, we look forward to getting it going when restrictions are lifted.
Dear fellow member,
Having taken office without the usual formalities at AGM, the Principal Officers would like to take the opportunity to thank our predecessors, Mary, Marie & Liam for inviting us to take on our roles as President and Captains of Fermoy GC for 2021. In doing so we would like to thank them for their leadership during what was an incredibly difficult year for all involved in our sport. We would also like to thank Seamus and the Committee of Management, Tomas and his course staff and Denis our Secretary Manager for keeping the club on an even keel during the pandemic. The work that was done, particularly in preparation for the Munster Finals of the Junior Cup and Pierce Purcell, resulted in a course in superb condition and earned great praise from members and visitors alike.
In wishing all of you a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year we also wish our hard working course staff member Pat Tobin a long and happy retirement as he takes a well earned rest after his excellent work for the club. As we move into 2021 we can only hope that we will remain open and that we can all enjoy the fabulous facility we have on Corrin. Our Drive has been cancelled until March 17 at the earliest, when hopefully we will be better able to mark the event.
Stay safe and enjoy your Golf.
Niall, Oonagh and Gerry.
Captain Gerry, Lady Captain Oonagh, President Niall, and Juvenile Captain Cian invite all members and visitors to the Captains and President’s Drive-in, which will take place on January 3rd, 2021, at the clubhouse.

The World Handicap System is now here. All clubs in Ireland and the UK have moved to the new system from November 2nd. Work is still continuing on the changes so that hopefully all the information on the new system will be correct. It is a different way of calculating our handicaps so members are asked to be mindful of this when examining the record.
The World Handicap System is coming to Ireland on November 2nd, 2020. Find out more at www.golfnet.ie/whs @GUIGolf @IrishLadiesGolf #WHS
