Celebration Night 2nd September

Posted in Category(ies):  Golf News

A magical event took place in Ballyneety Golf Club on Saturday evening last, 2nd September, when the members gathered together to celebrate the buy-out of the golf facility from the investors thus making it a members’ owned golf club. The journey leading to the purchase has taken four years from the time Limerick County went into liquidation in 2011 until Ballyneety GC made the final payment last month.

Liam Lawlor, GM of the club, thanked the huge crowd present, the clubs sponsors, their families and friends. He thanked the current and past Captains and Presidents and all the members together with those who work for the club in a voluntary capacity. He expressed his gratitude to those who are employed in Ballyneety Golf Club-the office, golf course, restaurant, driving range and golf shop.

He paid special tribute to Hugh & Finola O’Donnell for their involvement and support in steering the club’s buy-out initiative, ‘Project 2016’.

The highlight of the evening was the conferring of the Founding Fathers’ Family membership of Ballyneety Golf Club on Donal McSweeney, Minie O’Brien and Liam Lawlor as it was through their vision and dedication that the mission of restoring Ballyneety Golf Club was achieved.

Donal thanked the membership on behalf of himself, Minie and Liam acknowledging that they were delighted that the families were included as Ballyneety Golf Club is all about family and community. A great night of BBQ, music and craic followed. 
Thank you to all who attended, we hope you enjoyed the night!
