Meet The Team
I was born just off the Belgard road and have lived and worked most of my life in the area. I am the founder of The Echo newspaper which will celebrate it's 39th birthday next year. I joined Slade Valley in 1999 and was immediately struck by it's beauty and the panoramic views of surrounding counties as far as the Mourne mountains. The uniqueness of every hole and the friendly welcome I received made a lasting impression. I am honoured to be President of Slade and thoroughly enjoy the tasks and challenges it presents and working with the many committees in the interests of Slade and it's members.

Marie says that the best thing about Slade Valley, in addition to the golf is the friendliness and support of the members. Because of its wonderful location Slade Valley is as one of our older ladies says "the next thing to heaven" Marie joined Slade Valley in 1985. Marie joined Slade Valley in 1985.
Michael joined Slade Valley GC in 1998. After spending a few years in the USA, he began playing in earnest here in 2004. He has been on committee for the last 5 years and took over the captaincy from Niall Tallon at the end of 2017. Michael plays off 8 handicap and says he particularly enjoys the fact that ‘each hole in Slade Valley presents a unique challenge. When the game is not going so well, the views more than compensate, and the comradery in the 19th Is always there to enjoy’. Michael can be contacted on
Noel has been in all aspects of the Catering Trade since 1962. He still loves work and says he could watch it all day! His greatest strength is having a fantastic team to work with and they can produce top class food at any time for small or large numbers. The restaurant in Slade Valley, with its spectacular views over the course and surrounding countryside, is the ideal place for a small intimate occasion, a large party, a snack or something more substantial after a game of golf. Call in and try out our new Sunday Lunch offering each week. Noel and the team can be contacted on
