Templemore Golf Club Captain 2017 Outgoing Speech

Templemore Golf Club Captain 2017 Outgoing Speech.

President of the GUI Mr. John McLoughney and incoming president of Templemore Golf Club and members.  I have come to the end of my year as your Captain.  It was an honour and privilege for me to be your Captain in 2017 and I hope I represented you and Templemore Golf Club well.  I have to say that I enjoyed the experience and it was the opportune time for me to hold the position.

In my acceptance speech last year, I stressed our strength as a club and the importance of every member doing a little extra in time or money to help maintain our club and course.  This was evident in all those volunteers who helped to have the course in excellent condition for the Captains and Presidents competitions and again in the excellent work to clear up after the “Ophelia” Storm damage.  I thank all those involved.

I must also thank all who made the Classic and Dog Race Night such a financial success. Also for the contributions made by the Ladies Club and the Seniors Society to both of whom I am grateful.   I made changes to the format of the GOY for 2017, which proved successful.  I congratulate Dessy Hennessy the winner of my prize and thank him for the gratitude of his acceptance speech.

The Golf Club recycling project in conjunction with the Lions Club went well and our Junior Coaching Programme was very well supported.

Our Senior group are going from strength to strength and we developed a new group of Senior Ladies who play on Monday afternoons.

In 2018 we hope to run 9 hole open qualifying competitions and run our weekend competitions as opens.

Special mention, I have to thank our Green Keeper John Alexander for his excellent work, having the course in perfect condition at all times, and his co-operation during the year is much appreciated.

I am indebted to the committee for their support and co-operation during the year.

I thank Clare, my family and friends who supported me during my term as Captain and allowed me the time to devote to the post.

I wish the club continued success in the future and I wish the incoming Captain Tommy Foley well in 2018 and I assure him my full support.

In conclusion, I had hoped to have a perpetual trophy to be presented with the Captains Prize this year to honour our deceased friend Pat Delahunty who was part of the club for many years, but things did not fall into place.  This is being presented by his family and friends and I hope to finalize it in 2018.

Thank you.

Take everything else and try to de-clutter your mind. Just concentrate on making good contact and more often than not it works out okay.”- Rory McIlroy.

President’s Prize: Pat Maher wins by a distance

The decision of our President’s John Stapleton and Kay Brennan to hold their respective competition’s over the one weekend proves that thinking outside the box yields unexpected outcomes.

After two days golf in trying conditions Pat Maher emerged as a worthy winner with 46 pts needless to say with a card with few blemishes. He was the winner by a distance as they say in racing parlance from a chasing pack all on 40 pts who filled the minor places, Padraigh Moloney, Denis Tuohy, Jody Boyle and Jerry Keegan.Scoring over the two days was good in the wild conditions with CSS 71 for both days and 26 players equaled or broke SS.
