Message from the Captains
Dear Members and Visitors
As a member of Mahee Island Golf Club for over thirty years and having known and respected highly the many Captains during this time I consider it an absolute privilege to have being given the honour of Captain for 2016.
The support that I received across the Club while acting as Council member, Match & Handicap Convenor and Vice-Captain was a key factor in me accepting this role. It is reassuring to have the support of so many people to help me in what will no doubt bring many challenges. Thanks to all those who have wished me well.
In many ways it is an exciting time to be Captain at Mahee. Our inter-club teams were on top form in 2015 and are looking forward eagerly to the 2016 Season. I would ask those who have not played on the teams to put their names forward. I am sure they would enjoy the competition, camaraderie, and experience of playing other courses. The teams’ successes and our excellent golf course, which receives universal praise from opposing teams and visitors, have enhanced our reputation as a Club.
We all know that the game of golf is going through a difficult time; however, I am confident that Mahee, with a combined effort of Club officers and members, will continue to flourish. My main objectives for 2016 will be to sustain and increase our membership and to attract an increasing number of visitors. Members can play their part by bringing down friends, neighbours or relatives to Mahee to an open competition or just for a friendly game. The course suits players of all standards and visitors can be assured of a warm welcome, excellent value for money and the experience of playing one of the most picturesque and well maintained courses in Ireland.
To all I wish enjoyable golf for 2016.
Ladies of Mahee,
I am extremely pleased and delighted to have been chosen to be Lady Captain of Mahee for 2016, I will endeavour to serve Mahee to the best of my ability. I have been a member of Mahee for nearly 20 years. I've been on committtee for 6 years, the last 3 as Ladies Honorary Secretary of which I am proud to have been, I enjoyed it very much.
We have such a warm and friendly welcome here at Mahee. It is our little piece of heaven with our wonderfully manicured course and outstanding views. Our visitors find it a little gem. I couldn't agree more.
I look forward to supporting all our teams home & away and I wish them good luck for the season, all our team captains do a tremendous job trying to get players for all the matches we play against other clubs, so any member who is asked to play please show your support and play.
All golf is going through a difficult time, I am determined to work hard in promoting Mahee and I am committed to make it an even better club than it already is. Members can all help by volunteering for the many jobs that are required in and around the club, I know it would be much appreciated.
I would like to thank each and everyone one of you for all your support the last 6/7 years I am so grateful. I hope you all have a fantastic year of golf, health, happiness & friendship to you all.
