Members Achievements

2001 Captain John Horan recorded a unique double on this fine course. John had the last hole-in-one on the old course back in 1996. He holed out on the old 9th with an eight-iron, before the course was upgraded. No member had recorded a hole-in-one until John aced the par 3 162 yd’s second with his three-iron in June 2001. Another coincidence is that Benny Teevans was playing with him on both occasions.

Prior to 2001:

Raymond Williams was selected on the Leinster Boys' Team in 2000 and he won the golfer of the Month in the Druid's Glen-Irish Independent, Raymond was a Irish Youths' International in 2004 playing against Scotland.

Bruce Flecher won the AIB Irish Seniors Open Championship here in May 2000.
