Captains' Address 2023
Is there a better place? “I doubt it” said Croker
2023 is, hopefully, the year in which the Covid 19 pandemic will only appear in our collective rear view mirrors. Golf, not unlike the majority of sports, has come through the challenging Covid years and we are delighted to say that Ballyneety Golf Club, having successfully navigated these challenges, has arrived in 2023 in shipshape order.
2023 is also the year in which the membership of Ballyneety Golf Club celebrates its 10th anniversary. The story of Ballyneety Golf Club and, where it has come from in such a short timespan, is truly inspirational and we are delighted to say that it is now a model that is being studied and aspired to by many.
Our committees and sub committees are in place for the coming year to ensure the smooth running of the Club and your continued co-operation with them is greatly appreciated.
The Golf Course at Ballyneety goes from strength as the Club continues it’s policy of consistently striving for improvements in the conditioning of the Course. Dave Bailey and his Greenkeeping Team, in conjunction with our agronomic consultants at Carr Golf, are relentless in their efforts in this area and we are forever grateful for their work.
Ballyneety Golf Club is famous for it’s Cead Mile Failte. The atmosphere in and around the Club is legendary and is generated by a staff and membership that proudly invest in the priceless commodity of friendship.
We extend a warm welcome to all visitors to Ballyneety Golf Club. We offer a wide range of facilities and a Golf Course which provides an excellent golfing experience. Visit our newly renovated Golf Shop which is now fully stocked for everything that a golfer needs and pay a visit to Ballyneety Driving Range, Ireland’s first Trackman Range.
Vines Bar and Restaurant, under the stewardship of Gerry and Ola Grant, offers delicious fare to Golfers and Visitors and everybody is welcome.
The Golf Club provides a wide range of membership options, and we ask members to encourage friends, family and colleagues to come and enjoy what we enjoy.
We would also like to wish all our club teams and selectors the very best of luck for 2023.
Finally, we hope that 2023 will bring all of our members and visitors a most enjoyable year both on and off the Course.
Yours in Golf
