Message from the Club Captain

Hello Fellow Golfers.

Well what a year!  A year that started off with me getting presented with my Captain’s jacket and looking forward to representing Antrim Golf Club.  But then, as everyone knows Covid 19 put a stop to everything in March.  No golf, no GUI competitions where I could support our teams, no socialising at the bar after 18 holes on a Saturday or Sunday and none of the banter which goes with this.  All these had to be sacrificed so that everyone could stay safe.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank my fellow Committee members who continued to have monthly meetings using Zoom, especially Kenny Lee, Victor Watson and Bob Tweedale for their efforts when we eventually got back to playing again.  Also all the Centre staff, who helped to get us back, playing safely on the course again.

So now, with Christmas approaching, we maybe have some light at the end of a dark tunnel with the roll out of a vaccination for this terrible disease.  So with the hope that sometime next year we will get back to some sort of normal, I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy (covid free) New Year.

Regards, David Glass.
