Message from the Captains

Dear Members and Visitors
 
As I look forward to my Captain’s Year, I would like to invite members and potential members, to enjoy the experience with me, alongside our hard working 2015 Council.
 
Mahee Island is set in unique surroundings, which, even on a ‘Bad Golf Day’, are impossible not to enjoy.
 
I feel that my goal this year is to make Mahee as enjoyable and successful for as many members as possible and to make people feel part of our club. For anyone who doesn’t know me, I am the 3rd generation of my family to be a member of Mahee with two more generations already following. I feel honoured and privileged to be appointed Captain and would like to assure members that I thrive on the phrase “Actions speak louder than words”. At times we may feel that we are on a roller coaster but hopefully at the end we will have enjoyed the experience.
 
I would like to ask our members to support and help their club in any way they can. While enjoying your golf please try to respect the course and fellow golfers as Wilson, Alistair and Timothy do a fantastic job preparing the course for us. A little time spent replacing divots and repairing pitch marks would be very much appreciated.
 
Also I would like to encourage you to support our caterer Mark Spence, whether it be a cup of coffee or a meal, as you would not believe how an 8 foot putt grows to a 10 foot putt over a coffee in our clubhouse! Our Club Steward, Colin Macaw, and Jean do a wonderful job as ‘Front of House’ and hopefully they will continue to keep us on the straight and narrow. Whilst wishing all our teams every success, a bit of fun is also important, so please keep an eye on our notice board and join our teams either as a ‘seasoned Campaigner’ or the ‘New Kid on the Block’ ! everyone will get fair chances from our team captains. As a final word I would like to wish all our Members, visiting friends and societies a great year’s golf at Mahee.
 
Thank you
Arnold Andrews
Captain
 
Ladies of Mahee,
 
Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to be your Captain in 2014. I regard it as an honour, though also a responsibility to have been elected.
 
It is such a pleasure to play a golf course which is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, with views of Strangford Lough and its islands all around. The club is privileged to have excellent greenkeepers, who keep the course in superb condition, a fact mentioned, not only by Mahee members but also by visiting teams and other golfers. This is the first year that we will be playing our second nine holes from New tee boxes. Our course, though not long, is now a lot more interesting and challenging. Many thanks must go to our immediate past Captain Frona Clarke and club officials for all their hard work.
 
Having been a member for seventeen years, I have been very impressed by the warmth and friendliness of the club members. We take part in a lot of team events, where the quality of golf expertise and and team spirit is very obvious.
 
I am looking forward very much to working with our Lady President, Jean Rodgers, vice Captain, Kathleen McClements, Yvonne Revill, Secretary, Marie Carroll, competition and handicap Secretary, Heather Gibson, treasurer and members of committee, who together make a great team. We will do our very best to make your year as pleasant and successful as we can,so good golf and have a great year.


Barbara Martin
