The men’s AGM was held on Sunday 5/11/17 in the clubhouse presided over by the outgoing captain Gerry O’Hara. Condolences were expressed to the family of our past Captain, Michael Archer, who passed away in 2017. Gerry in his report thanked those who had supported him during the year, and mentioned developments in the club during 2017 which included the display of photos of previous Captains and Lady Captains in the clubhouse, and most especially the successful completion of course development works, part funded by the National Lottery Sports Programme.
This work included additional drainage on the course itself, the construction of a chipping practice area, the purchase of machinery and the erection of a new shed. Gerry thanked the members of the sub committee who oversaw this work. Gerry wished incoming Captain Terry Canning the best of luck in 2018.
The honorary secretary, Martin Wynne, paid tribute to Gerry for his commitment to the club in his year as Captain and also to those who volunteered their services within the club during the year, in particular Michael Rush who stepped in at short notice as Competition Secretary during the year.
