Ladies of Mahee,
I wish to thank you wholeheartedly for electing me as Lady Captain for 2013 and
with a mixture of excitement and trepidation I look forward to the incoming year.
The committee works as a team on behalf of all the members so that we can enjoy
our golf and Mahee. This year has seen major changes in personnel; Yvonne Revill
taking on the role of Secretary, Carrie Spence that of Handicap & Competition Secretary
and we welcome Pauline Maguire and Hilary McHenry to our ranks. Along with out Lady
President, Jean Rodgers and Vice Captain, Barbara Martin we will endeavour to do
our best for you.
The changes that have taken place at Mahee in relationship to course management
and landowner should not have any effect on the everyday running of the Club. There
will be regular meetings with the new Mahee Island Golf Course Ltd and the Lady
Captain will now be directly involved in these.
As to the future, my best wishes go to all our teams - thanks to those who have
taken on the role of Captain, it will be worth the effort! Well done to all those
who took part in the Winter Alliance this year and especially the ladies who played
at Mahee in February pulling back the deficit to be just piped to the post by Spa.
My Captain’s day will be on 21st June - hopefully in glorious sunshine and our outing
is to Galgorm on Thursday 8th August.
Mahee is a special place, the “Star of the County Down”. Sometimes I can forget
how special until friends come to play and are blown away by its atmosphere. Our
green keepers, Wilson and Alistair and steward Colin, and caterer Mark all play
their part in the welcome visitors find at Mahee.
My prayer for all this year is good friendship, good golf and most of all good health
to enjoy Mahee!
