Letterkenny Golf News
Rounding off a busy festive schedule at Letterkenny Golf Club by winning the last pre-Christmas competition on Saturday 20th was someone whom I believe to be one of the most dedicated members to competition entries, club stalwart and single figure handicapper Kevin Kiely .
If you were to assume that a member played two home competitions per week over forty-eight weeks, that’s almost one hundred competitions. Considering that during the summer months we had up to four competitions per week, [you do the maths] , then I would like to personally congratulate Kevin on his dedication and contribution to the success of club competitions. Once again, combining solid golf with shrewd course management, Kevin, on a wind-blown, showery day, covered the outward nine in 39 shots, three over par gross 19pts. With a birdie at eleven to keep him on track, Kevin finished on 79 gross for a winning stableford score of 37pts, defining his intent for the new season ahead.
GERARD TAKES THE “REIGNS”
It was with great delight and appreciation that the club inducted it’s 2015 club Captain, Gerard Duffy. “I am looking forward to my role as Club Captain for 2015 and i hope to follow in such auspicious footsteps as previous captains and retain the highest standard of club stewardship throughout my forthcoming year, for which I am deeply honoured, and look forward to working with the 2015 mens’, ladies’ and parent committees to ensure that that high standard is retained” Congratulations to Gerard and we can be assured that the club remains in good hands.
ANNE MAKES HISTORY AT BARNHILL!
Once again, Letterkenny Golf Club have made an historical entry into their history books, having elected a lady member to be their 2015 club President, and it was with the greatest of joy and pleasure that the nominee, club stalwart Anne Condon, accepted. “My most prestigious honour within the club to date was my election to Lady Captain in 2011. Letterkenny Golf Club has played a large part in my family’s lives, and will do for a long time yet. The friends that we have made through golf and the club, has been upmost to our settling into life in Letterkenny, and it is here that we now consider to be our forever home. The club Presidency is a great honour for me and I feel privileged to be able to accept”.
Anne’s appointment as Letterkenny’s 24th President will ensure that the prestige and high standard of professionalism that has become synonymous with Letterkenny Golf Club will remain in safe hands during 2015.
