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.
