A Letter to our Members

New Year 2017

Dear Members,

John & Mary your Captains for 2017, extend greetings to you and your families and wish you health and happiness for the coming year.

We would like to thank the outgoing Captains John Stapleton & Miriam Saunders for their spirited leadership and commitment during 2016.

It is a great honour to be your Captains for the coming year and we look forward to your full support during 2017. We thank all members who gave of their time on a voluntary basis to serve on Mens, Ladies and Joint Management Committees and those of you who support the workforces on the course and maintenance on the clubhouse and surrounds. A big thank you to the members who organized the various fund raising schemes during the year.

As you are aware our Club faces significant ongoing challenges so your generous support in paying annual subscriptions, participation in club competitions, helping to organize and support our various fundraising initiatives is vital to the future and continued progress of our club.

For those who attended the 2016 AGM in December you are aware of the current financial position of our club and the significant level of debt we have.

We are delighted to inform you that an agreement has been reached with the bank that the Finance Committee, Committee of Management and Trustees believe we can service which will secure our future and allow us to enjoy the facility that is Kilrush Golf Club.

Details of the agreement were outlined to members at our AGM in December. The repayments of €24,000 annually for the next 7 years gives us certainty and time to increase our income lines that were badly hit due to a falloff in membership and green fee income due to the financial crash and subsequent recession. We have been providing €18,000 towards interest over the past few years in the absence of a formal agreement with the bank. It took 2 years to negotiate our new agreement which means we are servicing a loan amount equal to less than half of what is owed to the bank. To help meet this repayment one idea put forward and discussed at the AGM was the introduction of a €20 donation from all members on top of their annual subscription. This alone with the support of members should generate a significant sum towards our new agreement which is only €6000 more than we paid for the last few years. The incoming Committee of Management has met recently and endorsed this proposal and seeks your support for this in 2017. We thank all who worked over the past 2 years to negotiate this new agreement on your behalf.

Our Course staff, FÁS and TÚS workers do tremendous work beyond the call of duty and we are fortunate to have such talented and dedicated staff.

We look forward to hosting the Irish Mixed Foursomes on the weekend 17/18th of June.

We wish our incoming Vice Captains Cyril Kelly & Lucy Blake the very best and look forward to working with them during the year.  Also best wishes to our President Sean Lyons and Lady President Ann Duggan.

Once again, happy new year, good health and good golf in 2017. 

Club Captains Kilrush Golf 2017. 

John Mc Nelis & Mary Keating.
