AGM of Castlerea Golf Club Management committee

The AGM of Castlerea Golf Club Management committee took place recently in the Clubhouse with a very good attendance of members.

  The newly-elected officers for 2016 are – President: Tommie Dolan, Chairman and Vice Captain: Pat O’Connor, Secretary: Pyers O’Connor Nash, Treasurer: John Mulligan, Registrar: Mickey Freyne, Lady Captain: Mary Kenny, Captain: Dr. Greg Kelly, Lady Vice Captain: Evelyn Curley, Course Manager: Myles Hawkshaw, Committee Members: Liam Walsh, Christy Glynn, Dara Bruen, Mamie Creighton and Liam O’Connell.

  The new chairman, Pat O’Connor, addressed the meeting and said he was honoured to be chairman of the club and he and the incoming committee would work hard to bring the Club forward. He thanked all our competition sponsors and the tee box sponsors for their generosity to Castlerea Golf Club and asked the members to support our sponsors in turn whenever possible.

  2015 has been a very successful year for Castlerea Golf Club. From winning the Connacht mixed foursomes the Club went on to compete in the All-Ireland finals of the mixed foursomes in Dooks Golf Club in Co. Kerry.

  We also had very successful golf classes for beginners through the CGI Golf programme which had almost 50 men and ladies taking part every Friday evening.

  At the end of the golf season we received the welcome news that Castlerea Golf Club has been approved for a €47,000 Sports Development grant. The new committee are now planning for the year ahead and we look forward to another successful season at Castlerea Golf Club. Membership vouchers make an ideal Christmas present and are available from Mickey Freyne or John Mulligan.
