We, Trudy and Austin, are honoured to be your Captains for 2020 and we appreciate the trust you, the Members, have shown in us. We will do our utmost to represent you and Skerries Golf Club to the highest standard throughout our Captaincy. We are overwhelmed by the amount of good wishes we both have received and we look forward to your continued support throughout the coming year.
2020 promises to be an exciting year for Skerries Golf Club. Our 3rd and 5th Greens have settled in well, the engagement with Carr Golf to oversee our course maintenance is already showing dividends with the presentation of the course and we welcome Delicieux as our new Caterers.
A Golf Club cannot run without the help of the numerous volunteers who work behind the scenes to ensure that we enjoy our golf. We wish to acknowledge their work and thank them sincerely for their time and commitment, not forgetting their families who allow them to do so.
The vital role played by all the Club’s staff in delivering the Skerries Golf Club experience cannot be overlooked and we thank them most sincerely in advance for the varied requests we will make of them during 2020.
We wish all members of this great Club an enjoyable and fulfilling year and while doing so, we would ask that you give a thought to our Junior Section, to help, support & encourage them as they embark on their journey into Golf. This is no small ask but please remember they are the future of our club and therefore must be nurtured in the best way possible.
To the Committee of Management and all the members of the various other committees and sub-committees, we would like to wish them well in their up-coming tasks in 2020. We look forward to working with you as we all strive to make Skerries an enjoyable experience for both members and visitors alike
We wish to express our thanks to our generous and ever faithful sponsors and hope to engage their support once again over the coming year. We would encourage all our members to show their own appreciation by supporting the upcoming events and acknowledge any victories in the customary manner.
Our Socials are an important part of the Club and we would ask every member to commit to attending at least one social event during the year.
Our commitment as your Captains for 2020 is to continue a vision of making Skerries Golf Club a community based and friendly Club with an emphasis on ‘friendly’ and to fostering an atmosphere steeped in heritage and a golf ethos to rival any club.
We are both going on a journey and we wish that you our fellow members will join us on the fairways as we support the Inter Club Teams and socially at our various functions
Yours in Golf,
Lady Captain Trudy Henry
Captain Austin Gill
