We are delighted and honoured to be selected as Captains of Castletroy Golf Club for 2020. We will endeavour to represent our club to the highest standards and to be the best ambassadors possible for our great club.
Castletroy golf course is continuously regarded as one of the finest parkland courses in Munster and indeed Ireland.
This year, we are very proud to be part of a very small group of Irish golf courses affiliated to and operating under the R&A Biodiversity on Course Initiative, whereby we continue to promote sustainable environmental management of our golf course.
The enjoyment of the game of golf and all social activities which members and guests experience in Castletroy would not be possible without our staff who work tirelessly both on and off the course. We take great pride in our magnificent golf course and in addition the services of the pro-shop, bar, and restaurant which are enjoyed and appreciated by our members.
The volunteers who serve on various committees and groups, giving their time unsparingly, ensures that golf, the upkeep of the club environs, and all other social activities are there for all members to enjoy.
We would like to thank all of you involved and we look forward, with your support and help, to this being a great year for everyone.
We also look forward to the many golf competitions both within the club and those scheduled for visitors to Castletroy. We also welcome all the golf societies who enjoy our facilities every year and of course all those visitors who enjoy our course through green fees.
This is obviously a very challenging time for everyone and especially so difficult for those whose health and that of their loved ones have been affected by the present pandemic.
No doubt we will all greatly appreciate being able to get back to golf, at a time when it is safe to do so.
Through regular email contact, our Instagram presence, Twitter, and Facebook, we will keep you updated on work being carried out on the course and any other relevant information for you the members. In addition, the GUI/ILGU will continue to post information on any changes or developments regarding the re-opening of golf courses.
