Mens Club

Incoming Club Captain Derry McCarthy will become Captain with effect from Friday next, the 20th of October, Derry has been a Club Member since 2002 and he has perfected his golfing skills in the intervening years now playing off of 7 handicap. Derry graduated to the game after honing his short game skills at Deerpark Pitch and Putt Course, where he achieved International level, when he was selected to represent Ireland at the World Championships in Australia in 1996. Derry and his wife Julie and their two children Katie and Brian are very much looking forward to his year as our Captain.

Derry has outlined some of his aspirations for his year, and in no particular order, he has indicated the following. Continuation of Club and Course improvements which have been ongoing for the last number of years. Continuation of the great progress made with our Teams who go out to represent our Club at all levels in the National competitions. The Junior Clubs have seen a new initiative introduced over the last 6 months, and he is very committed to ensuring that this will continue to progress, we need our Junior Golfers to receive every possible encouragement if they are to go on to future success, as our Club future is dependant on our Juniors.

His year as Club Captain will get off to a fantastic start when the Club will bestow, on Former Winning Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley, the Award of Honorary Life Membership at a Club function on Thursday the 26th of October. The absolute pinnacle of his aspirations as Club Captain will be to bring back a National Pennant to the Club from one or even more of our Men’s Club teams who will represent us during the year.

Finally he would like to thank his predecessor Declan McCarthy for nominating him for the role of Captain, and he would like to take this opportunity to wish Declan and his wife Nessa and their sons Nathan and Callum all the very best for the future.
