Congratulations to Katherine Moore on having a hole in one on Tuesday 17th September in Professional Brian O'Brien's Prize to the Ladies.  Well done Katherine and congratulations to all prize winners. Susan Hart 1st Prize and Katherine Moore 2nd Prize.   See Results for further details. Thank you to Brian O'Brien for his generous sponsorship.

Congratulations to all winners so far this year.  Don’t worry if you haven’t been a lucky winner yet, there are still a few more draws left in 2019 so it could be you next. 

Just to re-cap where your money went this year.

New website.

Painting of foyer, upstairs landing, downstairs hall, corridor and entrance. 

Sanding of the floor in the bar.

Cleaning of carpet in hall, stairs and dining room. 

I think we all agree that this was money well spent and without the members draw it would not be possible to carry out this much needed facelift for our clubhouse. 

Well done to our Vice President Bob Campbell for arranging all of this. 

Castlewarden’s Lauren Walsh didn’t take long to announce herself on the collegiate scene in America after blasting her way to a seventh-place finish on her Wake Forest debut in South Carolina.

Lauren had seven birdies in a stunning final round of three-under par 69 to grab a tie for seventh at minus-five at the Cougar Classic.  Lauren’s contribution helped her new Wake Forest teammates to a second place finish in the team standings, one shot behind winners Vanderbilt.

It’s the continuation of some stunning summer form for Lauren after her top-10 finish as an amateur amongst the pros at last month’s ISPS Handa World Invitational at Galgorm Castle. Unsurprisingly, it was a performance that pleased Head Coach Kim Lewellen in Wake Forest.

The Management Committee were very sorry to learn that Dee from the office was moving on from her job with the club. Since Dee joined us in May 2016 her warm personality endeared her to all who had occasion to deal with her and ability and dedication was of the highest order . We wish Dee every success with her future plans and thank her for her time and commitment to Castlewarden Golf Club.

In finding a replacement for Dee we had a true challenge. But the gods have shone brightly on us and we are delighted to be able to confirm that from Weds 28th August Philippa Carr will taking up the position in the office. We are very lucky that we can replace one great member of staff with another.

Phillippa will be well known to you all and her commitment to the club and ability is out of the top drawer. We wish her well and look forward to her settling in and meeting you all over the coming weeks.

We are now back to full strength in the Office and we are indeed fortunate to have a strong team with Colette and Phillippa looking after all our Club Administration.
