LADIES CLUB

The Annual Ladies Christmas Social was held on Sunday, From 11.30 onwards the course was full with more than 60 ladies on the fairways. The course was in great condition and the weather was favourable. The winner on the day was Mary Cunniffe with Pearse Corbett in 2nd place. The golf was followed by the Presentation of prizes and by a meal. At the presentation Lady Captain Loreto Boland welcomed everyone and thanked all who came. She also welcomed members of the White family who came to present a cup to the Ladies Club. Mr Gerard White then presented the beautiful cup which had been won in Moate Golf Club by his aunt, Mrs Fitzgibbon, who was a former owner of the Irish House in Moate, He said his aunt had always treasured the cup and that the family felt it should be retuned to Moate. Lady Vice Captain Eileen White them accepted the cup. Going forward it will be presented to the winner of the Lady Captains Prize each year.

Lady Captain Loreto then presented the following prizes, Golfer of the year Geraldine Coughlan for the 2nd year in a row, The Elvery Trophy sponsored by Clara House Spa and Holistic Centre to Veronica Colgan with Betty Behan getting 2nd prize, the Christmas Hamper generously sponsored by Terry Coughlan to 1st Helen Kelly, 2nd Mary Rose Coughlan, 3rd Ann Magee, Cat 1 Veronica Colgan, Cat 2 Noeleen Fox, Cat 3 Marie Keane and Cat 4 Ann Egan. The ILGU Silver spoon was given to Beth Dunne, the Silver medal to Loreto Bolan, the Bronze medal to Eileen White and the ILGU junior medal to Ella Grennan. All other outstanding prizes for the year were then presented.

Following the meal which was as usual  of the highest quality which Pauric and his staff are renowned for and which was enjoyed by all. the prizes for the day were presented. No one goes home empty handed from the Christmas Social. Thanks must be given to those who had the job of buying them.

CLUB NEWS - 10TH DECEMBER 2018

Although we are obviously full on Winter Rules at this stage, the course is holding up very well considering the amount of rain that’s been falling recently. We thank everyone who continues to support the club by playing in the weekly turkey competitions and of course the Winter League. As it’s getting very near Christmas it’s a good time to remind members and indeed non – members that as well as buying membership or green fee vouchers from the shop, Michael Horan has a lot of quality equipment and clothing both in Moate and Birr which I’m sure would make ideal Christmas presents. I know I have one or two items picked out and I’m busy dropping hints!

RESULTS – Turkey Competition – Week 5 – (Stableford 13 holes) Dec – 3rd to 9th 2018

Cat 1 – Barry Cuffe (8) 24pts, Cat 2 – Darren Rosney (13) 29pts, Cat 3 – Seamus Fagan (16) 31pts, Cat 4 – Philip Dully (22) 29pts.

UPCOMING FIXTURES – As in the past couple of years we will have a ‘Christmas Hamper’ Open over 13 holes (re-entry possible) from Monday 17th December to Sunday January 6th but until then it’s Winter League & Turkey Competitions all the way.

PRESENTATION OF PRIZES – We will be presenting all the Turkey Vouchers and there are a couple of other outstanding competitions to be given out next Sunday evening (16th December). We have yet to confirm the time but everyone with a prize to collect will get a text during the week.

NEW RULES OF GOLF – Mens Secretary Padraig Keenan issued an email during the week with a video containing many of the new rules which come into effect on January 1st 2019. Check the video out and pick up your new rule book in the clubhouse. It’s important that we familiarize ourselves with them as quickly as possible to avoid confusion in the future.

2019 DIRECT DEBIT FACILITY – All categories of membership will be covered from casual to GIG’s and I’d urge anyone interested in this facility to contact Treasurer Sean Dunne.

SEERY’S CASH & CARRY WINTER LEAGUE 2018/19 – There are now 28 teams entered. The top 15 teams qualify for the final with a 16th coming as a wildcard from those non qualifying teams with all rounds played. The league table is bang up to date thanks to the Wicklow dynamic duo and Team 10 on 431pts are currently in 1st place. That team is Tommy Rosney, Seamus Buckley, Gabriel Buckley, Paddy Egan & Darren Rosney. Benny Greham’s side are 2nd on 403pts and sponsor Ollie Seery’s lads are in 3rd with 389pts. Most upwardly mobile this week is Team 20 – Noel Curtis, Eamon Cunniffe, David Harney, Michael Murray & Barry Cuffe who move from 20th to 10th on 269pts. The biggest plunge of the week goes to Team 6 who fall 6 places to 13th  although it’s hardly surprising considering they only have 4 registered players and one of them is Captain Jimmy Kassaris who is currently setting off alarms in every shop in town until they readjust their frequency to allow for his new hip!

MIDLANDS INTERMEDIATE ALLIANCE – The Alliances Christmas Outing is in Mullingar next Sunday 16th December with tee times from 10-12. I’m told there will be lots of prizes up for grabs. For further details contact Paddy Coyne on 085 2485177.

LOCAL RULE IN BUNKERS – From Monday 19th November 2018 a local winter rule came into force. Bunkers may not be raked every day so if you wish you can pick up your ball, rake the bunker and then replace your ball – or play as it lies and rake afterwards in the usual manner.

MANAGEMENT CLUB AGM – Thanks to everyone who attended the Management AGM on Sunday evening. Chairman Martin Horan thanked all the employees, volunteers and committee members for their outstanding work during the year and wished everyone well for the coming year. Treasurer Sean Dunne delivered his financial report and confirmed that overall Moate Golf Club is doing well with increased membership numbers and asked that we continue to support weekly competitions. In my absence fellow Wicklow man Padraig Keenan delivered my Hon Secretary’s report which I had decided to do in the format of a review of the year. I am sorry I was unable to attend and thank Padraig for filling in at short notice.

The Management Committee for 2019 is Chairman: Martin Horan, Hon Treasurer: Sean Dunne, Hon Secretary: Andy Dunne, Men’s Captain: Jimmy Kassaris, Ladies Captain: Eileen White, Men’s Vice-Captain: Tommy Conlon, Men’s President: Kevin Lowry, Lady President: TBC, Trustees: Betty Behan, Joe Creggy, Men’s Secretary: Padraig Keenan, Ladies Secretary: Marian Mullen, Committee: Loreto Boland, George Garvey, Noel Mulligan, Geraldine Coughlan, Mags Galvin, Michael Connolly, Rory Minagh.

The only motion submitted at the Management AGM related to Subscription Fees for 2019 was passed and all fees are the same as 2018. Full details will be on the website.

The Annual €100 refund raffle winners are: Mary Egan, Noel O’Brien, Michael Rabbitte, Denis White, Kathleen Grogan, Brendan Costello, Eileen Seery, Paddy Cleary, and John Naughton.

2019 DIRECT DEBIT FACILITY – Due to prohibitive banking fees we could not provide this facility for those who needed it in recent years.  A new service will be implemented via a company called ‘Fairway Credit’ and they are used by 1,000’s of golf clubs in Ireland and the UK so we are very excited to being one of them for 2019. All categories of membership will be covered from casual to GIG’s and I’d urge anyone this interests to speak with Hon. Treasurer Sean Dunne. Full details will be available shortly.

SEERY’S CASH & CARRY WINTER LEAGUE 2018/19 – There are 26 teams entered but that’s still down on last year so we still need more members to sign up. There are a few sides with vacancies so if you want to join in just give your name to Anna and we’ll allocate you to a team. The league table has been updated and there’s been some leapfrogging at the top end. Benny Greham’s team is now 1st on 376pts. Biggest upward movers of the week are Team 25 led by Noel Ryan on 187pts in 15th from 25th and in the opposite direction Willie Ganly’s side slide 6 spots to 17th with 162pts.

CLUB NOTES 25/11/2018

There’s a new sheriff in town!

Jimmy ‘The Greek’ Kassaris has been appointed Men’s Captain for 2019 and he looked very dapper indeed in his new jacket on Friday night. He spoke eloquently on his accession to the top spot and was very considerate in giving outgoing Captain George Garvey a few minutes to move his car from the Captains space during an interval in the AGM. Naturally we all wish Jimmy the very best for his big year and we look forward to enjoying it with him.

The deferred Club 500 Final was played on Saturday and Joe Casey, George Garvey and I stole the prizes on the day. We would like to thank everyone who supported this event from its beginning in April. I’d also like to say a huge thank you to my playing partners and fellow finalists Liam Galvin & Martin Horan who were great company all the way around and definitely helped me relax and play well.

3 of the 48 'Club 500' Finalists Joe Creggy, Val Keogh & Denis Cronin .

The first league table of the competition has been updated and will be posted to the website. Early front runners are Team 10 – Tommy Rosney, Seamus Buckley, Paddy Egan, Gabriel Buckley & Darren Rosney with 360pts.

ANDY'S ARCHIVE - I've renewed my IrishNewspapersArchive.com subscription for another 12 months so I hope you will continue to enjoy the little nuggets of history that I discover on Moate GC and it's surroundings.

First up this week is from the Irish Independent of October 1939 and we needed a good mower! Somethings never change.

The Offaly Independent of 28/7/1990 commented on our Golden Anniversary in our current site.

Club Notes from the Westmeath Examiner of 25/3/1995.

Offaly Independent 8/2/1980 and AnCo Golf Society were breaking down barriers by letting the ladies play.

This one actually relates to Mullingar Golf Club but I thought it was interesting. A piece on their new location from the Examiner of November 1909.

And finally you'll have to believe me that it's a total coincidence that I found this the week before the AGM that will determine our fees for 2019 but it's even harder to believe that Moate GC members are paying less now than we did in 2009. Obviously it's not so hard to believe that Moate GC has always been and continues to be fantastic value for money.

ANDY'S ARCHIVE

(held over from last week)

ANDY’S ARCHIVE – My week wouldn’t be complete without spending at least a few hours wading through Irishnewspapersarchives.com and here are few more Moate related items I’d like to share.

We might have had a Drive Out last weekend but in Westmeath Examiner of 10/3/2012 it was time for Vincent Shelley & Eleanor Fitzpatrick to Drive In.

In November 1979 Mickey Rabbitte was appointed Captain at Ballymore Pitch & Putt with Johnny Cleary also on committee. Many Moate members had their first introduction to golf clubs here.

Inter County Golf and though Bert Burke was wearing the Westmeath county colours he couldn’t stop his native Dublin as The Irish Press 13/11/1978 reports.

A Christmas Hamper was played for as per Westmeath Independent of 22/12/1962.

A 15 hole stroke competition result in the Examiner dated 16/3/1957.

A Tuesday Club report from the Examiner of 24/7/2010.

One of the earliest mentions of Moate Golf Club I’ve found so far in a Westmeath Independent of 25/5/1901.

Another Captains Drive In, this time Liam Allen & Mags Galvin are among the notes from an Offaly Independent dated 3/3/2000. I also see current Captain George Garvey winning a Cat 3 prize with a nice score over 15 holes!

 

LADIES CLUB

I first of all must congratulate Lady Captain Loreto Boland and Captain George Garvey on the great turnout they had for their Captains Drive Out on Sunday. It was a most enjoyable day, even the weather behaved itself. Well done to both captains and thanks for all the work they have done in the club over the year.

The 13 hole competition on Wednesday was sponsored by Beth Dunne. It was won by Betty Behan (23) with 27 pts and Beth Dunne (14) was 2nd also with 27 pts.

 The October Running competition was sponsored by Joe Mullen. The winners were 1st Aideen Jordan and 2nd Mary Carolan.

The annual 13 hole Turkey competition is now running and will continue until Christmas.
