President's Prize: Ballykisteen Golf Club held its annual President's Prize event recently and by all accounts the day was a huge success. Current club President, Oola man Bertie Quirke says it was a great day out and that the well known club continues to grow from strength to strength. "We had a fantastic day and a great turnout, including former club President's Denis Ryan and Michael Ryan, who are fellow Oola men. We have one of the finest golf courses in the country and it's no surprise that it continues to attract golf lovers from near and far. The success of the club is down to the great community spirit that keeps the show on the road. It's driven by dedicated volunteers who who go above and beyond to play their part in making Ballykisteen Golf Club what it is. We are a very welcoming club and new members are always welcome so I'd encourage anyone interested in joining to come along and give it a go. Being part of the club is a great social outlet. It's great for a bit of fresh air and exercise in a beautiful setting, and people of different backgrounds and abilities are more than welcome".
