Lady Captains Message

Lady Captain - Anne Toner 

Dear Members

At long last I am very pleased to address you as Lady Captain. This Is a year I was so looking forward to, however none of us could possibly have imagined the current pandemic as we drove, pitched and putted our way around our beautiful course last year. We have all been impacted by Covid 19. I hope you and your families have remained well both physically and psychologically but extend my sincere sympathy to anyone who may have been bereaved.

Our return date to playing golf is fast approaching and I am so looking forward to meeting you all over the coming weeks. I’m sure you can’t wait to start playing golf and greeting other members. We’ll soon see then, who has been practicing during this lockdown!

In line with GUI/ILGU recommendations we are all working hard to ensure that we can all resume golf safely. It is important that we adhere to the guidelines. I would like to pay tribute to our course staff who have maintained our course so beautifully, judging by the photos.

Finally I look forward to playing and meeting you all over what is left of the year . Hopefully the weather behaves and we can have some great golf.

Stay safe and well.

Your Lady Captain
