PLANS to close down Luttrellstown Castle Golf Club located in the Castleknock part of Dublin at the end of the year have been shelved for at least 12 months.
The decision was taken following a review of costs during the year and the streamlining of operations at the club. Chief executive Colm Hannon explained the current situation last night.
He said: “Following a complete review of this year’s financial performance of the golf operation and the measures that have been put in place to enable us to reduce our operational costs, in addition to a review of our green fee rates during the period, we have taken the decision to continue the golf operations at Luttrellstown for an additional 12 months.
“This will be good news for all golfers who have enjoyed playing at Luttrellstown and who were disappointed when we announced our decision to close the club. The performance of the operation will be reviewed throughout 2010 and a decision made towards the end of 2010 with respect to 2011. Members will be given the option of purchasing an annual Membership in order to continue using the facilities at Luttrellstown for 2010.”
