Lady Captain's Address



Ladies, as your Lady Captain for 2018, I am delighted to welcome you all to our new Golfing Season.

I am so looking forward to my year and working with Lady President Mary, Lady Vice Captain Catherine and my committee, but most of all, I am really looking forward to getting out there on the golf course and playing golf with as many of you as possible, because believe me ladies, there is lots to look forward to, and we will have plenty of fun.

After the great success of our teams in 2017, we once again need to build up funds, so I hope you will join me in supporting the many fundraising events that we have organised throughout the year to raise much needed funds for the club.

I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all our new members and would hope that their golfing experience at Ballykisteen will be a very pleasant one.

To our Get Into Golf Members 1 & 2, we really need your support, and I encourage you to come to our draws on a Sunday as it's a great way of getting involved in the club, meeting new people and improving your golf.

Once again, I am really looking forward to our team events and building on the great successes of the last few years.  Ballykisteen Ladies & Junior Girls have earned themselves a wonderful reputation out there on the match circuit, and I have no doubt they will do us proud again this year.

To all our visitors we extend a "Cead Mile Failte" and hope that their visit with us proves to be a memorable one.

To, James O' Sullivan, Anne O' Leary, Marian Riordan and all the management team, hotel staff, ground staff and pro-shop staff, I thank you for your continued help and support and I look forward to working with you all throughout the year.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to wish the Men's Captain Frankie Nolan, Men's President John Hughes, Vice Captain Tom Ryan and Junior Captain JJ Bennett the very best of luck for the coming year, and to all our golfing members, I sincerely hope 2018 is an enjoyable year for you all.


Yours in Golf

Caroline Cussen
