Newsletter May 2019
Dear Fellow Members,
Our first Meeting of the New Management Team as mandated at the recent EGM has been held and we wanted to bring you up to date with the latest information with regard to the Club.
The Management Team consists of the following:
Chairman – Des McKee
President – Teresa Delius
Lady Captain – Marguerite O’Brien
Men’s Captain – Eddie Frahill
Hon. Secretary – John Barry Connolly
Treasurer – Gerry Deegan
Ben Price – Marketing and PR
Adrian Tanzer – Clubhouse and yard Manager
The primary objective for the remainder of this season is to consolidate the club’s financial position, to generate new lines of income and expand existing revenue streams.
Cobh Golf Club Lotto
We ask all members to make a special effort over the coming months to sign up to the Club lotto as it is a vital part of the club’s finances run by Noreen Kelly and assisted by Mick Gould for which we are grateful for all their effort and help.
Currently the lotto is supported on average by:
- A) 26 members with a monthly S.O with the bank
- B) 9 members who pay annually
- C) €300 on average per week in cash sales.
What could you do to help make the club Lotto a greater success?
This week’s competition, all score cards will have the Lotto S.O application forms attached. We will be able to take completed standing order mandates during sign in for the President’s Prize. There are multiple options available, please choose an option and support your club Lotto.
The club is heavily dependent on Green fees and Golf Societies during the summer season for its revenue, as we must be open for business and need the word to spread of our Super Golf Club and hospitality. Sometimes this is difficult to balance with Tee Times and events, but we ask for everyone to exercise patience as we mediate the balance between requiring revenue and accommodating members’ preferences.
The Club table quiz is being held on Friday, June 21st at 8pm in the Ballynoe Inn. All those that are budding General Knowledge enthusiasts or wanting to test their skills please contact Pat Feen for more details.
Sponsorship of tables for the night is available and again the person to contact is Pat Feen if you can be of support that would be greatly appreciated.
The Cobh Masters
This is our second year to run this event after a very successful inaugural event last year. We hope to spread the word far and wide to encourage guests from other clubs to play. This is our flagship sponsors event being held on September 13th and 14th for qualifying with the Top 40 to play on the Sunday 15th September
Format: Single Stableford
Top 40 scores to be zeroed for the Sunday event.

Presidents Prize this coming weekend.
We would like to wish President, Teresa, well in the Presidents weekend event and all those that have supported her in this event. We are sure it will be a great weekend and a great advertisement for the club as a whole.
Thank you to all those that have represented the club and been involved in the Team events as it is a great sacrifice of Time and Energy of those involved. We continue to look forward to the remaining events of the golf season.
We would like to welcome the new members this month, we encourage all to play with these newcomers and show our true hospitality and our reputation of being a friendly club.
As time moves forward we aim to keep the open communication between Management and members through regular updates on news as it develops so please watch out for news on the notice boards and the BRS system. We also welcome feedback and comments
Until the next time
