I am hugely honoured to be writing to you as Captain of The Galway Association Golf Society (London).
Firstly my sincere thanks to Brian Lennox for the great job he did last year as Captain, it was a pleasure working with him as Vice Captain and I know I have a lot to live up to this year, but I’m relishing the challenge. Secondly, I’m very pleased to introduce Frank Gill as my Vice Captain whom I know will be a capable commandant in the year ahead.
We start as usual at the Buckinghamshire Golf Club on 11th April 2013 and continue through the season at all our favourite venues. Come September we shall be returning to Ireland again to enjoy another week of great Golf and a lot of fun!
I was fortunate enough to win The Golfer of the Year and the Irish Tour Golfer of the Week competitions last year, and congratulations also to our Chairman, Mick Corcoran, in winning the Matchplay Championship last year.
On behalf of all the members I’d like to sincerely thank our sponsors who continue to support the GAGS each year. It is very much appreciated.
Likewise a big thank you to the GAGS committee who do so much work on our behalf to make sure that the Golfing year is always such a great success.
Matchplay Championship Finalists please take note: In order to ensure that our Competitions conclude in a timely manner, a motion was passed at our recent AGM whereby it was unanimously voted that all 2nd Round Matches must be decided PRIOR to our outing to The Buckinghamshire next month. The Quarter Finals can then be played at the Bucks.
Good luck to you all and I look forward to seeing you at the Buckinghamshire on Thursday, 11th April.
