Captain’s Newsletter – October 2018
October! What a quick year, the golf has been great (not necessarily mine), weather at the beginning was amazing and whilst it hasn’t always been that good it mostly hasn’t been too bad. The course has held up brilliantly and I am looking forward to seeing what Richard is doing over the winter and how it will all unfold before the start of next season.
First thing to pass on the decision sent out already regarding the Links and the use of mats this winter, I hope everyone will agree that it is a great idea.
I would like to say a couple of shouts out, first to Tom Mair for getting us a great deal on a defibrillator, but an even bigger shout out to Gavin Gilmour who paid for the holder to mount the defib on the wall. Defibs are potentially life-saving bits of kits and are easy to use without any instruction, simply follow the instructions and the voice commands. We now have two, one in the Greenkeepers shed and one in the clubhouse, please make sure that you are aware of where they are, heaven forbid you need to use one.
There is a function coming up in the clubhouse on the Saturday 27th October, Los Perros are playing, there are still a couple of tickets left, please come along, the band have been here before and are excellent.
The competitions in September, including the Members and Guest and the Shotgun start sponsored by Club Choice Ireland, were well supported and all the compliments about the course and the hospitality continued to be passed around, certainly the guys I played with said our greens were the best they had played all year. Well done to the winners, not sure how the Shotgun start guys are going to figure out who gets what!
I wasn’t here for the Danny Kelly memorial event, but I heard it went well and I am sure it did, still can’t believe that he isn’t with us.
The Ryder Cup weekend was brilliant, well done to Team Europe, the Rose Bowl was scheduled for the Sunday which was not in my plan at the beginning of the year, but we made sure that our tee off was early and had everything completed as soon as we could to allow all of us to watch the final few hours. Good news for the club, we retained the Rose Bowl and that makes two in a row, let’s try for the hat-trick next year.
I have already put out a separate letter about the vandalisation at the golf club, I only hope we catch this low-life scum.
Dates to look forward to:
13th October – Gents, Tom Bennett & Harry Fairbairn Trophies
14th & 17th October – Ladies, Turkey Competition
20th October – Gents, Autumn meeting
26th October – Gents, prize giving
27th October – Gents, Final Season Medal
2nd November – Ladies, Prize giving
3rd November – Gents, Better ball Stableford
