As captain of the Dublin Mountain Super Seniors team I want to thank all members of the team who participated in the Elm Park Super Seniors Trophy group stage qualification matches.

A fantastic 5-0 win for the Super Seniors team versus Dun Laoghaire GC at home today.
J Hopkins & J Reid won 4&3; P Behan & T Foran won 4&2; L Mahon & B Campbell won 7&6; H Behan & T Kirwan won 4&3; M O'Sullivan & M O'Brien won on the 18th.
Team manager: Terry Kirwan.

On a very pleasant (albeit grey) day at the course, a burst of colour stood out for the singles Match Play final.
After a nip & tuck battle Kevin Behan edged out Ray Dunne by 1 hole, if this was the seniors tour Kevin Behan would have won €950K and Ray €500K but because Ray also finished 2nd in the Doubles Final he would hypothetically by a paper millionaire.
Many thanks to all those who participated and to Ger Cantwell for his patience in organising it all.
Brian Cruise, Captain 2021 (Mike pence has stepped in for Damian Byrne who due to work commitments has reluctantly switched roles to Vice Captain).

Golf Ireland have now directed that Scorecards are marked in the traditional manner.
The marker writes in your hole by hole scores & after verbal confirmation then signs the Card at game end. They also write in your name where you would normally sign it, They then place the card into the slot in changing room desk.(Please do not swap cards after or before round).
Step 1: Install the howdidido app, When you submit 3 cards a Handicap index will be allocated.
Please put the 3 scorecards in an envelope marked "For Handicap" and leave at the course reception.
( In addition you can send a photo via email or WhatsApp to speed up the process).
After Handicap index allocation you will then have access to the HDID tee time booking system for Competitions and casual golf at the course.

- At the moment we are not accepting supplementary cards played outside of our Weds/Sat/Sun "Handicap Card Return" events, due to issues with the competition course.
Your current Handicap index is based on your best 8 scores from your last 20 qualifying rounds. When playing at home you are allocated a course Handicap based on this > Course Handicap Table.
- If playing a Stableford/Strokeplay Competition you will receive 95% of your allotted Course Handicap
- Only rounds played with WHS qualifying conditions will count towards your best 8 scores.
- using a 29.9 handicapper as an example; they will have a course Handicap of 31, at 95%, their Competition Playing Handicap = 29.

I know this is all very confusing for us all, but it will bed in over time.
