ALL NEW CAPTAINS NEWSLETTER

 Rockmount Gents Section Update: March 2018 Captain’s Newsletter:

 
Message from your Captain: Frank Mc Williams
 
As I sit here in the clubhouse at Rockmount enjoying my healthy breakfast option and coffee I thought it would be an opportune moment to pen a missive to the Gent’s Section.
It is indeed a wonderful honour for me to be Captain this year of our great club and I look forward to engaging with all  the membership in the course of my term of office. Thanks to you all for your good wishes for the year ahead.
It has been a long and busy winter and we can now look forward to the golfing season ahead. Thoughts of better weather, fast greens and beautiful fairways are indeed very appealing. We have now completed the competition side of the 2017/18 Winter league and considering the adverse weather we have experienced I think this is a creditable achievement and hats off to all who made this possible not least those participating. Thanks all.
The draw for the match play section of the winter league has now been issued with the final scheduled for Sunday 8 April 2018. My very best wishes to all those taking part and I look forward to meeting the successful finalists in April. The gent’s winter league dinner will be held on Saturday 14 April. This is always a great night. Further details to follow.
 
 
Inter –Club Matches- Rockmount Wants you.
 
The team sheets for a wide range of inter-club competitions are now available in the locker room. Having played in teams myself in the past I would strongly urge all members to consider putting themselves forward for inclusion/selection for matches. This is not only a great way to represent your club but also affords the opportunity to get to know your fellow members and play different golf courses in the course of competitions. Winning is a nice habit and I am keen to build on the success of our various teams last year. So have a look at the various competitions and sign up. More detailed information on the range of inter-club competitions is now available on the Rockmount Facebook page.
 
Recent Committee Appointment
 
I am delighted to welcome Jonny Lath to the Gent’s Committee following ratification at the February meeting. Jonny is a relatively new member having joined the club in 2016. Jonny will be responsible for all aspects of public relations and will be responsible for the gents and juniors sections of the website as well as social media. He will also liaise with the local press and promote all aspects of the clubs achievements. He is a great supporter of the club and we all very much look forward to working with Jonny going forward. Please feel free to contact Jonny with your golf or family announcements or achievements via email at jonny_lath@hotmail.com, or by sending a message through the clubs Facebook page. 
 
Captains Away Day
 
It’s great to see so many of you have signed up for my Captain’s away day to Bettystown Golf links on Friday 25 May 2018. I believe there may be some spaces left, so if you haven’t already signed up but wish to go, add your name to the sheet in the members  area. Should be fun.
 
Social
 
Keep an eye out for some exciting Social events planned for this year. Coming live to Rockmount on 19 May is the Abba tribute band –The Bjorn Identity. Promises to be a great night. Further details to follow. 
 
Regards and Happy Golfing
