Strandhill Golf Club Notes 12/08/18

The President’s day was played in dry and windy conditions on Saturday and the rain stayed away.
It was a great day for Mary Jo Keane and members, friends and family celebrated with Mary Jo into the early hours.
The golf event was very exciting David Leonard one of the early starters posted a great score of 40 points and he held the lead until late in the day when Cass Smith completed a great round equalling David’s score and beating him on the back nine.

President's Day pictures are in the Photo Gallery on the website.

Strandhill Golf Club Notes 01/07/18
 
The Connacht Seniors Open took place at Strandhill Golf Club on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th conditions were very hot over the two days and it was strange to see so many brollies used to keep out the sun. The course was in great shape and this was acknowledged by the competitors who were very complimentary of the course and the hospitality over the two days.
 
On Monday July 2nd the JB Carr team are playing the first leg of their Connacht semi-final against Ballinrobe, the match is played over two legs with the first leg away, good luck to all involved.
 
The first social mixed event was on Friday and conditions were perfect for a social outing, the social committee intend to run the event every second Friday during the next two months. The social mixed is a great way to socialise with your fellow members and we would encourage more members to get involved, next outing Friday 13th July.

Strandhill Golf Club Notes 17/06/18
 
Saturday 16th June we played for Hugh Gallagher’s Captains Prize, the day was a mix of sunshine, breezy and a sprinkle of rain, perfect for one of the clubs major events. The winner after a marathon day was Brian McDermott, Brian in his speech was full of praise for Hugh and the people who are the backbone of Strandhill Golf Club highlighting the way he was made welcome in the club and the true friendship in sport he is experiencing. Brian was a very popular winner and well deserved over the gruelling 27 hole final.
 
The evening celebrations in the Clubhouse with Hugh and his family will live long in the memory for a very popular and respected individual. The celebrations, song and dance continued long into the wee hours.
 
The JB Carr team had an excellent victory over Enniscrone the away leg lived up to expectations with the home side winning the second leg 4 – 1 but Strandhill came good in the playoff with Noel and Gerry winning on the first extra hole. The next match is versus Ballinrobe in July.

Strandhill Golf Club Notes 3/06/18

Congratulations to Daniel Dolan who had a hole in one on the 14th on Saturday.
 
Tente sponsored the GOY competition on Saturday and this was very well supported with members playing off Blue and Green tee’s. The scoring on the day was exceptional reflecting the great playing conditions. The winner on the day was Kenneth Henry with 44 points on countback from Philip Moriarty, great scoring off blue tees.
 
Sunday’s competition was sponsored by Lannon’s Pharmacy and the winner with a great score of 42 points is one of our new up and coming members J.P Wright who went round in three over gross. I played with J.P on Saturday and he reflected on the fact that he did not play to his handicap since joining the club but he has laid that ghost to rest in style, well done J.P.
 
Best wishes to our mixed team on Tuesday in their encounter with Boyle, this is a tough assignment but our players are ready for the challenge.
Our Over 55’s team had a close encounter with Ballina GC on Wednesday unfortunately the match did not go our way however it was a valiant effort and our thanks to Mick Phelan Manager for all the work and commitment to prepare the team.

​Hugh with Frank Hannon at his first prize giving.

The final round of the Winter League took place today and all the members congregated in the Bar for the Christmas Party and final prize giving of 2017.

Captain Hugh Gallagher was master of ceremonies and he welcomed everyone and set the tone for 2018 with a rousing speech encouraging all members to promote Strandhill Golf Club at every opportunity in the community, nationally and further afield. Hugh is passionate that everyone who enters Strandhill Golf Club will have a memorable experience and will go away eager to return.

Many congratulations to our neighbours Strandhill Rugby Club on winning the Connacht Senior Challenge Cup after more than a one hundred year wait. A brilliant achievement well done and continued success to all in 2018.

STRANDHILL GOLF CLUB NOTES 10th DEC 2017

The AGM of Strandhill Golf Club Limited took place in the Clubhouse on Friday Dec 8th. 
​The meeting was well attended and we had some changes in personnel on the Council.
​Leo Logan has finished his tenure as President and we welcomed Mary Jo Keane into the office of President, good luck for 2018 Mary Jo.

​Leo Logan was elected as Company Secretary unapposed and Grainne Henneberry has moved to the role of Council Secretary.
Colm Martyn was elected unapposed to Course Convenor and David Lindsay will continue as House Manager for a further term. The incoming Vice President is John O Donoghue.

​The Winter league took place on Sunday amid major speculation we would be snowed out of it and we were greeted to a beautiful sunny day on the links. This was week four and the groups are starting to take shape. One of the dark horses this year is Mick Phelan and John White with four straight wins, I wonder what odds will be on offer come the day of the final.

​The Loftus brothers are starting to take control of their group after a slow start and they would have to be mentioned as one of the favourites in any conversation for potential winners.
​The league tables are in the Members Section for further details or analysis.

​Sunday Dec 17th is the final Winter League date before Christmas and the Christmas Party and final Prizegiving of 2017 will also take place. Please make every effort to attend if you are picking up a prize and to take part in the final get together before Christmas.



 


STRANDHILL GOLF CLUB NOTES 3rd DEC 2017
The Men’s branch AGM was held in the Clubhouse on Friday Dec 1st. This was the final act of Captain Leo McNally’s reign and a number of tributes were paid to his great stewardship in 2017. Men’s branch Honorary Secretary Anthony Skeffington provided a comprehensive account of the 2017 Golf Season and the key moments in the year. The members paid tribute to the work and research that went into the report from Anthony, it is much appreciated.
Captain Leo handed over the Captaincy to Mr Hugh Gallagher and it is fair to say the club is in safe hands and Hugh will bring great enthusiasm to the role and he is recognised for his can do attitude and it is safe to say “watch this space” in 2018.
