Captain's Message 2021

A message from Sean and Marese 2021 Captains

Dear Members,

We would like to wish you all a happy, safe and healthy New Year. Although it might not be the start to the golfing year that we had planned, we are hopeful that in the near future, we will get the opportunity to get out and play golf again. We would like to thank you all for your continued support, flexibility and co-operation during the Covid-19 pandemic. We say thanks to Jim & Lucy for their leadership throughout 2020 and ensuring the Club has remained strong and ready to face the challenges ahead.

The past year was a difficult year for the club as we could no longer rely on Society or Green Fee revenue and this will continue in 2021. We are working very hard behind the scenes to find solutions. To date, we have availed of the Wage Subsidy Scheme towards staff wages, we continue to apply for any government grants or supports and took advantage of a Bank Loan deferral to ease the financial burden on the Club. The 50/50 draw was also created to raise funds for Club Development and your continued support is welcome in 2021 to provide necessary financial support to continue that necessary development work.

We are very fortunate to have such loyal and proud members who keep our club running smoothly year on year and we would also like to welcome so many new members who have joined us in 2020. To those of you who have already renewed your membership and those of you who are getting around to paying your membership, we thank you for your continued support. For any members who are thinking about renewing your membership, we understand that this may be a difficult time financially. However, there are various payment plans available to our members to ease the burden of a lump sum payment, if you require any assistance please contact the club office, 067 31476 option 1 or any member of our Committee.

We also have a facility for you to pay your membership online, you can do so electronically by bank transfer using the BIC IBAN details on your recent bill from the club. If you are paying online please put your name as reference so we know you have paid your membership.

We can’t wait to get back playing golf and we are looking forward to seeing you all on the Course very soon.

Kind Regards to all our members in 2021 and stay safe,

Sean & Marese
