AGM

Captain 2023 address.

12/01/23.  2023 Captain Declan welcomed all to the Clubs EGM for 2023 on a cold frosty Friday night.  His address was very short and mostly thanking all. It was a great honour and I am very proud to have served you all as your Captain in 2023, and something that I have very fond memories off that I will cherish for many years. I believe 2023 was a very good year for the club and we have achieved a huge amount in a very short time. The club has now moved to a One Club Model the preferred choice of Golf Ireland and it was also the right thing to do. The Club adapted a new constitution to reflect our structure that will now come into place. A lot of work has taken place on the course and there is still funding to be spend on drainage from the Sports Capital Fund when the weather permits. We would have liked to have completed more but some external factors prevented this from happening. It’s important here to mention Pat and Dinny our staff who work tirelessly to provide a high-quality golf course for our enjoyment. I also want to thank all the volunteers who gave their time and effort to assist with many course duties in keeping it to this high standard.  The Captains Prize, Vice Captains and Presidents Prize were all wonderful successes and thanks to Sean Lee and his team of Mick Keely, Les Mason and Timmy Tuohy for all their efforts during the year. I would also like to thank all the managers and helpers of the Interclub Team Events, where the club had a very successful year. The Country Clubs Team under the watch eye of the Manager Seamus Bourke had an historic win in dreadful weather conditions in Lismore. The Perry Team, managed by Liam Leahy went to an all-Ireland semi-final in Westport and were only beaten in the last match on the 18th. The JB Carr Team managed by Mick Carey and supported by Liam Daly won the Area Final.  The Diageo Mixed Foursomes were beaten finalists, lost on the 18th hole in Roscrea. Many other highlights in 2023 for the club was the Ladies Programme for Getting into Golf with nearly 40 new lady’s members joining, opening of the restaurant the new signage got installed that was funded by Duggan Brother’s, but all the signage ordering and design was completed in Jim’s term as Captain in 2022.  I want to thank the Committee sincerely for the support they provided to me and what they gave to the club in 2023.  The club could not have had such a successful and enjoyable year without their commitment and hard work. I would like a special mention each of them, Mr President Rody, Vice-Captain and incoming Captain Les, Hon Secretary Pat, Hon Treasurer Tom, Hon Competition Secretary Sean, Hon Handicap Secretary Michael, Communication Officer Tony, Ex Officio Jim, Declan, Eamon, Timmy and Jerome. Thank you all again for your support throughout the year. I want the thank the Women’s Captain Mary Gilmartin and the Women’s Committee for 2023 for all the support they provided to me. I also wish the incoming Women’s Captain Caroline Fogarty a very pleasurable year ahead. I am looking forward to being part of the Management Committee in 2024 and working closely will all committee members to the betterment of Templemore Golf Club. I want to thank everyone for supporting me and making my Captaincy in 2023 a very enjoyable experience.  Declan Kennedy,

12/1/24.  One Golf Club Model Presentation from Communication/PRO Tony O’Toole.  I had to go back to the beginning as we are now on a new beginning journey with the “One Golf Model”

A special thanks to President Rody, the Late former Captain PJ Leahy and our Historian researcher Frankie Shortt for documentation on the evolution of our club to prepare for this presentation. A Historical notification was circulated in the Garda College for the purpose of forming a “Garda Training Centre Golf Club” at 8.30pm on 28th. Sept.1971. President Rody Cawley unveil this historical presentation of original documents relating to the initiative that formed Templemore Golf Club.  A proud gratitude to those pioneers who initiated this notification, otherwise we would not have Templemore Golf Club here today.  Included in the presentation are Minutes from the 1st. meeting to form our Golf Club on 28th. Sept 1971. In the Courtroom of the Garda Centre, Chaired by our eminent member Sgt. Pat Costello.  One observation describes the restrictions on civilian to play. The 1st.. AGM was held on 22nd Feb 1980 in the Staff Canteen of the Garda College.  There are lot’s of familiar names who attended this AGM including our eminent members Pat Dunne and John Moloughney.  We have come a long way since those inaugural meetings to our present “One Golf Club Model” This was initiated by Golf Ireland to us on 16th. Dec 2022. A lot of work behind the scenes involved many late-night meetings, phone calls and long meetings with Golf Ireland development and support officer for Munster, Sam Power and others to make sure we were on the right track.  We are now at the final hurdles in completing this project which will encompass both men and women as one club. This is also a necessary requirement going forward to avail of Capital and sports grants as is our own autonomy commenced in 2017, 6 years in the process, encompassing several legal and state departments, and more recently forming our LTD company and our own constitution. To Quote our Captain Declan “ It’s not that we have to do this, but it’s the right thing to do”  I commend our Captain Declan Kennedy for his steadfast, due diligence and commitment to the project also all the men and women committee members and a special mention to our women’s Captain, Mary Gilmartin for her overwhelm support throughout the process. I take this opportunity to wish all the new committees, Captain’s Les Mason, Caroline Fogarty and President Tommy Foley, all the success during the golf year 2024 and beyond.  P.R.O.

Captain 2024 Address.

12/1/24. Captain Les Mason Address.  President Tommy, Past President Rody, Past Captain Declan, Past Golf Ireland President John Moloughney  my fellow club members / friends. I cannot tell you how proud and stunned I was when  Past Captain Declan Kennedy asked me to be his Vice-Captain. I always thought you had to be a good golfer to be Captain and to all those that suffered around with me in the early days of 2016 in my getting back into golf after such a long layoff at a new and interesting golf course would testify. I thank Denis and Martin Bohan, Bertie Keane, who took me into their group. I wish to share one abiding memory that epitomises my feeling of how I would like to see everyone to see the club and its members. Again I was privileged to be asked by Phil Ryan, Pat O’Connell and the sadly missed PJ Leahy, to join the men’s seniors committee thank you. Well the first Thursday morning after the COVID restrictions were lifted I never saw so many smiling faces and lack of complaints, it was not Too Cold Too Hot Too Wet Too Sunny Too cloudy etc.etc. The points and teams did not matter people were just happy to be out and playing golf.  I mentioned Captain Declan earlier and I cannot continue before I say that I have not met, in all my time in golf clubs, someone with so much energy, drive and focus as Declan has shown in his year as Captain, and I must disappoint you all immediately if I matched that in this year as Captain I would burn out way before August. Thank you Declan, and the committee, you steered us through the first year of the new era of our leasehold and championed the one club model constitution and thus made us Golf Ireland compliant. I also want to mention Mary Gilmartin another force of nature with an open mind and wanting to expand the members of the club which the “Get into Golf” scheme did so well.  From all this great work in 2023 we will be moving into the new structure, agreed in the new constitution 2024. Exercising and testing the new processes and that structure and how they work for our club. Where necessary we will bring changes back to the members to ensure we end up with a constitution that will enhance the membership experience of all the members of Templemore golf club.  So to 2024, I am looking forward to serving as your Captain to represent you the members and the club to the best of my abilities and I am sorry to say I will make mistakes as I have no previous experience in the role at all. I am hoping all the members will work with me to make this year a great success and help me out as the golfing year unfolds. As Captain Declan has thanked the 2023 committee I thank those that will be giving their time and effort to the 2024 committee lets hope the meetings will be as energetic and productive as 2023. A penultimate thank you goes to somebody that I have worked with closely on the Competitions Committee over the last two years, he has been involved in sporting organisations for many many years so this experience and his enthusiasm and passion for the club is second to none, my Vice Captain for 2024 Sean Lee, thanks Sean for being crazy enough to volunteer. I also look forward to working with the incoming Ladies Captain Caroline, the one club model is such a move forward in the game it can only lead to more exciting views, competitions and other aspects of Golf and hopefully bring more people into the great game of golf.  2024 Captain Les Mason.

Captain Declan Kennedy’s Appreciation.

The Captain’s Prize was a very successful weekend with a large turnout of players. The competition was cut short and played over 36 holes, due to poor weather conditions. Nevertheless, the competition saw very good scoring and it took a countback to decide the winner.  The poor weather did not dampen the atmosphere of the occasion. Congratulations to Dinny Tuohy on winning first prize, he showed all his skill to get it over the line. There are people that I wish to thank for contributing to making the weekend a very enjoyable and memorable occasion with a special thank you to the Competition Committee, Sean, Les, Timmy and Mick who worked tirelessly over the weekend and put in very long hours. My fellow golfers who played over the weekend to support my Captaincy and those who were unable to attend but sent their apologies or best wishes were much appreciated. Another very special thanks to the course staff of Pat and Dinny who worked tirelessly during the week to have the course in tremendous playing condition, in such challenging weather. Thanks to Jim Ryan for offering me the captaincy and allowing me the opportunity to serve my fellow golfers. It is such an honour and privilege to be provided with the opportunity to be Captain of your local golf club and one I truly appreciate. Les Mason has been a great Vice-Captain and the club is in very safe hands next year. Thanks to the Men’s Committee and sub committees who make my job much easier and who work diligently for the club. The Lady Captain Mary and the Ladies Committee have made tremendous strides this year especially with the “Programme for Getting into Golf”. The ladies and men’s committees are working very closely together with many joint sub-committees already in place. The goal is for a joint committee of governance/management to be installed to run the affairs of the club in the very near future.   Liz’s Café prepared and served the food over the weekend. The café venture is a very positive step for the club. Thanks to Seamus for attending all the functions and providing his expertise with the photos. The Men’s Seniors and Social Mixed have been very generous in donating their takings to the club for their respective Captain’s competitions during the week. Thanks to all the managers of teams who gave their time and continue to do so. Some of these teams are presently having wonderful success. Above all I want to thank my wife and daughter for supporting me in this very busy year. I hope that I haven’t forgotten anybody and apologise if I did. This has been a roller coaster of a year to date, one that I am truly enjoying and look forward to the rest of the year.  (Captain Declan Kennedy)

Vice-Captains Appreciation.

2nd. July.  Vice-Captain Les Mason Appreciation.  President Rody, Captain Declan, my fellow committee members and all my friends the members of Templemore golf club. Thank you for being here this evening I also want to thank all those that took part and those, while not able to play entered the competition. I cannot let the opportunity pass without saying a big thank you to Club Captain Declan Kennedy for nominating me as his Vice Captain. I am both proud and humble to be given the opportunity by Templemore golf club to give back a part of how much this club has given me in such a short time.  As Declan said in his Captain’s speech last year 2022. we are entering a new phase of the club’s history with the signing of a 21year lease and the world golf initiative for inclusion as a “one club for all”.  I want to commend the efforts of all the club officials and committees who manage and maintaining the principle that we are here to facilitate all members to play golf.  To that end I hope I am fulfilling to the best of my abilities the role of supporting Declan this year, though with his boundless energy and enthusiasm I feel I could never have kept up with him even at my fittest, but I will keep on trying for the rest of our time working together.  From my point of view the Vice Captains weekend has been a great success, it has been fantastic to see all the people out on the course playing with people they may not have played with before. I also would dearly love to mention Paddy Nolan and Seamus Ryan who participated for 9 holes on Saturday.  I always enjoy seeing these two, play golf and thank them for being part of the Vice Captains prize.  I must as I do every time I stand and admire the views, thanks to Dinny Touhy and Pat Shelly for their work in maintaining the course to such a high standard. We have a small level of volunteers and other people that chip in, but by far these two gentlemen are wonders and the course reflected their skill and commitment throughout the year.  So now before this speech becomes too much like one from Oscars and I fail the third principle of the advice I would like to thank my fellow members of the Competition Committee Mick Keely , Timmy Touhy and most importantly the Boss Sean Lee for guiding me through and organising this weekend.  With a final thank you to everyone in Templemore golf club and a request from Tony O’Toole for all the winners to hang around for a group shot at the end of the presentations, I hand over to our Competitions Secretary Sean Lee to give the stats and the results for the Vice Captain’s Prize weekend.

2022 Review / Highlights.

A Historical New Chapter for Templemore Golf Club.

On 21st July 2022 the Club signed a 21year lease with the OPW, Severing its connection with the Garda College over the past 50 years. This now means that the Club has its own “Autonomy” to a bright future ahead.

Golfer of the Year 2022.

Golfer of the year Ned Delany. This was a particularly proud presentation as Ned had participated in the Juvenile program run by the Golf Club during the school break in the summer over many years. A proud day for his family and no doubt a possible career of great enjoyment in this great game.  It was also a special occasion for the 2023 Captain Declan Kennedy performing his fist presentation of his captaincy.  The top three winners in Templemore Golf Club’s Golfer of the year 2022 were Ned Delany  29.  John Stapleton 15,  Jerry Keegan (Jnr) 14.  The Competition was an accumulation of points over six competitions held in 2022.

Club Classic Appreciation by Captain Jim Ryan.

A fantastic weekend of golf.  Our 2022 Club Classic saw great weather and great golf.  Templemore Golf Club recently signed a 21year lease with the OPW giving the Club its own Autonomy.  This gives Templemore Golf Club great stability and a very positive future going forward.  But it will also bring its own financial challenges, that’s why the Annual Club Classic is very important for our Club.  40 teams played over the weekend, the Senior Men played on Thursday and Senior Ladies played on Monday.  I’d like to thank the team sponsors, members and visitors that played in the Club Classic.  Also a huge appreciation to local commercial sponsors and to the overwhelm support from Golf Clubs all over the country.   A lot of work goes into the running of the Classic, organising prizes, catering, registering’s players and tallying the results, checking the lotto, getting the course ready.  Thanks to the Club Committee especially the Competition and Course management teams.  We look forward to your continued support.  All very much appreciated by the Club.  Captain Jim Ryan.

Captains Address 2023

Dear fellow members,

It is a great honor and I am very proud to serve you all in 2023 as your Captain. I would like to thank Jim, for nominating me as his Vice-Captain, I am very grateful to him for giving me this opportunity of serving you all.

Templemore Golf Club held their AGM on Friday last 9th December and a big thank you to all who attended in the very poor weather conditions. The AGM was a very successful event and the following Officers and committee were elected;

Men’s Templemore Golf Club Committee 2023
President Rody Cawley
Vice-Captain Les Mason
Hon Secretary Pat O’Connell
Hon Treasurer Tom McGrath
Hon Handicap Secretary Michael Purcell
Hon Competition Secretary Sean Lee
Communication Officer – PRO Tony O’Toole
 Ex Officio Jim Ryan
Ex Officio Michael Purcell
Committee Member  Declan Russell
Committee Member Timmy Tuohy
Committee Member Jerome Ryan
Committee Member Eamon Connelly

I wish Rody, our President, a very enjoyable and memorable year ahead. I also want to take this opportunity to thank Les for accepting the Vice-Captaincy and I’m look forward to working very closely with him in the year ahead. I want to sincerely thank all the Officers for committing again to 2023. I’m also delighted to welcome our three new committee members Eamon, Timmy and Jerome. Thank you also Declan for staying on for another year. Thank you, Donal, Bertie and Denis, for your contribution to the committee in 2022 and your pledge again to help me if required. I am looking forward to working with all the committee in 2023, together we can make this a very memorable and productive year for Templemore Golf Club. I would also like to wish the Lady Captain for 2023 Mary Gilmartin a very pleasurable year ahead and we will undoubtably work together as a team for the benefit of the club.

This is the first year of our long-term lease and Templemore Golf Club being a limited company. With this new structure we have many new and greater responsibilities than before. Many new policies and procedures will be introduced that we will have to follow.  There will be extra costs that the club will have to meet such as clubhouse maintenance, insurance, electricity etc. However; the great thing now is our club can plan long-term with this new autonomy we have acquired.

Things are moving very quickly in golf with new policies and guidelines from GUI having to be adhered to.  We are moving to one golf for all and this is now policy by GUI for funding etc. However, we should not just be doing it just because it is policy, but because we know it is the right thing to do. From now on this club will be focused on moving towards being governed by both ladies and gents within a joint management committee. This year both committees will work very closely together to . establish an inclusive governance structure that meets the requirements of GUI and all Templemore members.

We also have to replace the constitution to meet the new Limited Company structure and the needs of the club moving forward this will then be presented to you members at a Special General Meeting. Change can be slow, but we as a committee will work very hard to move things along. These are very challenging, exciting and positive times for Templemore Golf Club and I’m looking forward to playing my part as Captain for 2023.

This club is your, the members club, and I believe we can take it to new heights now and build on all the great work provided by past members and committees. A club would be nothing without good staff and feet on the ground and we have that now in abundance. I look forward to working closely with Dinny, Pat, our Course Manager and all the members who contribute to getting the course to the high standard we are now accustomed too.

Finally, I would like to say that if anyone would like to talk to me about anything pertaining to the golf club, I am always here for you, in confidence. I know I may not always get things right this year, but I can guarantee you one thing, I will give my captaincy for 2023 everything I can on behalf of all members within this golf club.

Yours sincerely

Declan Kennedy

Classic Appreciation by Captain Jim Ryan.

A fantastic weekend of golf.  Our 2022 Club Classic saw great weather and great golf.  Templemore Golf Club recently signed a 21 year lease with the OPW giving the Club its own Autonomy.  This gives Templemore Golf Club great stability and a very positive future going forward.  But it will also bring its own financial challenges, that’s why the Annual Club Classic is very important for our Club.  40 teams played over the weekend, the Senior Men played on Thursday and Senior Ladies played on Monday.  I’d like to thank the team sponsors, members and visitors that played in the Club Classic.  Also a huge appreciation to local commercial sponsors and to the overwhelm support from Golf Clubs all over the country.   A lot of work goes into the running of the Classic, organising prizes, catering, registering’s players and tallying the results, checking the lotto, getting the course ready.  Thanks to the Club Committee especially the Competition and Course management teams.  We look forward to your continued support.  All very much appreciated by the Club.  Captain Jim Ryan.

Vice Captain’s, Declan Kennedy Appreciation.

I would like to thank Club Captain Jim Ryan for nomination me as his Vice Captain.  It’s a great honor to be asked to captain your golf club and one that I accepted gladly.  I will try to continue the great work provided by Jim and all past Captains.  I would also like to thank my wife Brenda for all her support and encouragement that she provides to me in all the decisions I make.  Next year will be the challenging year for me, but I know I have great people around me who can guide and assist me to fulfil my roles and duties.  Presently we have a wonderful strong dedicated committee who work tirelessly behind the scenes planning and organising everything for the benefit of the Club and its members.  We are now coming into a new phase in Templemore Golf.  The Club now have its own autonomy that will allow us to plan, for the future with greater certainty. The benefit of acquiring our own autonomy creates challenges and new responsibilities, but I’m sure with the people involved in this golf club they will be accomplished.

Before I start thanking people, I would first like to mention members who have recently passed on, Joe O’Connor and PJ Leahy come to mind.  They have provided the club with great memories, and they are very much missed and especially this week.  I would like to thank Dinny Maher for all his long hours and effort in getting the course in pristine condition for this weekend.  Also, Tom McGrath, Michael Webster, and Liam Leahy. The competition committee, Sean Lee, Les Mason, Declan Russell and Mick Keely who worked tirelessly and had everything running smoothly for the weekend, you made it very easy for me, thank you.  This weekend would not have been a success only for the effort that all the members gave in playing in such exceptionally hot (+30) conditions, a very big thank you to all for taking part in the competition.  I want to congratulate all the winners of the Vice Captains, especially the winner Ned Delaney, a young golfer to watch!! Ned had a magnificent score of 77 Gross and 64 Net, just pipping three seasoned players who had 65 Net.  Overall, it was a very enjoyable weekend, and I would again like to thank all who contributed to making this a great weekend of Golf.  Yours truly, Declan Kennedy

Jimmy was only 18-years old at the time and a schoolboy at the Presentation Brothers.  He won the British Amateur Championship in 1946 and many other National Championships, before an injury brought a premature end to his illustrious amateur carrier.

Templemore Golf Club Fred Daly U18 Team in Dundrum, L. R. Team Manager Pat O’Connell, Daniel Joyce, Ned Delaney, Eoin Kelly, Ned Walsh, Tom Duggan, and Arthur Kelly.

 

Fred Daly U18 Trophy 2022..

Congratulations to the Templemore Fred Daly U18 Team.  Daniel Joyce, Ned Delaney, Eoin Kelly, Ned Walsh and Tom Duggan.  They put up a proud performance for the club and deserve congratulations.  It was a very close contest with Dundrum snatching the victory in a 3-2 win.  A special appreciation also from the club to the Team Manager Pat O’Connell.  A special word of thanks to Sinead and Arthur Kelly and Michael Delaney for their support and encouragement. Complements to Dundrum in their victory and we wish their team all the success in the tournament.

 

The Great Fred Daly.

Fred Daly was attached to Balmoral for over 45 years and must go down as being a star if not a superstar of British and Irish golf in his day. Fred was known and loved the world over for his ready wit and charm and for holding the distinction of being the first Irishman to win the Open in 1947 at the age of 36. Fred achieved much in his career despite the fact that the bulk of his prime coincided with the Second World War.
