Captain’s Message for 2023
On behalf of both Lady Captain Susan and Captain Timmy we wish to acknowledge what a great privilege it is to be Captains of this wonderful club in 2023.
With the support of the Ladies and Men’s Committee and the Board of Management we look forward to working together to maintain our traditions as well as promoting inclusivity and equality for all our members.
We hope to continue the progress of our Junior Club as we wish our Junior Captains Lily Breen and Matthew Little all the best for their year.
We continue to improve our club on many fronts, from course development to club operations. This would not be possible without the hard work of our grounds staff and our volunteers at every level. We are also getting tremendous support from our wonderful office and bar staff.
You will always get a warm welcome from our PGA Professional Brian Kerley, who is always on hand to provide assistance either in the shop or with a lesson on the practice range.
A very special thank you to our generous sponsors, without whose sponsorship we would not be able to offer our members and guests the range of great competitions that we put on every year.
With this new season, hopefully, will come new members and we will endeavour to make your membership in Ardee Golf Club the start of a lifetime of enjoyment and we look forward to meeting you in the coming months either on the course or in our lovely Club House.
We also look forward to welcoming visitors and guests to play the course, dine in our restaurant, and share a drink in the bar.
And finally, we wish to extend best wishes to our members, visitors, families and friends and wish you all good golf and good health and hope we have a great and enjoyable golfing year in 2023.
Yours in Golf.
