Pitch & Putt Practice Session

Beginners and newcomers are most welcome to attend the practice session on tomorrow evening (Tuesday 28th May)at 6pm on the Pitch and Putt course where members of the committee will be available to take small groups to demonstrate the technique of the game and the etiquette that goes with it before competitions start in the coming weeks.

The Pitch & Putt has Reopened for the Summer 😊

Millstreet Pitch & Putt Club is now in full swing after the winter season. The course which is in existence since 1964 is looking immaculate with its manicured greens, lush fairways and practice driving range. Coaching for both adults and juveniles will take place on 14th May. Membership will remain the same as in previous years at the very affordable price of €20 per family, €15 per adult, and €10 per juvenile and Actively Retired, which can be paid to any member of the committee. Competitions will begin in May for the many trophies that have been donated to the club, with the most recent ones being The AIB Trophy and The Credit Union Trophy kindly sponsored by our local financial institutions.
The club is very grateful this year to Cork County Council for the LCDC grant of €8000 which will help in a big way to repair the roof of the club house which has been getting progressively worse over the years and also for the general upkeep of the course.
There is no better way to enjoy a lovely sunny evening than playing pitch and putt under the beautiful Clara Mountain, so come on, everybody welcome.

Millstreet GAA Club will host its 5th Annual Golf Classic on Friday next 14th September in Mahoney Point, Killarney Golf & Fishing Club. This event has proved to be a very successful and enjoyable day and the funds raised are used for the development of our players. The organising committee of Anthony Dennehy, Declan Crowley, Donagh Hickey, Cian O’Mahony & Noel Crowley have ensured the success of the event and it gives former members and players of our Club an opportunity of meeting in a relaxed and social atmosphere.
The Golf Classic could not be held without the support of our generous sponsors and Millstreet Club wishes to acknowledge the 6 main sponsors of the day – Cloverhill Foods, Colemans Millstreet, Tarrant’s Bar, Eamonn McCaul Mechanical Services, Claramore Construction and Donagh Hickey Motors. We also wish to thank the business of Millstreet and surrounding areas who sponsor tee boxes and greens, the support of each of these businesses is appreciated by the club as we are fully aware of the financial demands that are made on businesses on a daily basis. To all the teams that are playing we look forward to meeting you on the Friday and we wish you the best of luck and thank you for your continued support.
