Members of a Kildare golf club were shocked Wednesday night, May 22, to receive a text informing them that the club had gone into receivership.
However, the management of Woodlands Golf Club at Coill Dubh, Naas, has since stressed that while the receiver has a charge over the property and land, the club as such will remain operational.
“We are in negotiation with the receiver in order to continue operating the club,” Secretary Orla Winder told the Kildare Nationalist last Monday. She added that the club was still open to members and for green fees, while competitions would go ahead as planned.
