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.
It is an honour to be Lady Captain of Slade Valley Golf Club for 2019. I joined the Golf Club back in 1998 and it was a great decision because I found a golf course I loved and a place I enjoy visiting every week. I have made many new friends on the golf course and off the golf course during this time. The Golf Course is nestled near Saggart with wonderful views of Dublin countryside. Our weekly Ladies Competition are on Tuesday’s, we play 9 or 19 holes and then we enjoy great food, camaraderie and banter after the game in the clubhouse. There is a great social element in Slade Valley and our Ladies Club are very active. We participate in all the major competitions and our Ladies won the Mary McKenna Diamond Trophy in 2016 and again in 2018! A great achievement for the Club. This year we plan to promote a ‘Learn to Golf’ program offering an attractive package with golf lessons, support and mentoring to the new Lady Members. I hope all current Members, both Men and Women, enjoy their golf in Slade Valley in 2019. Slán, Frances.
It is an extreme pleasure and certainly a privilege to serve as the 2019 Club Captain of Slade Valley Golf Club. Since joining the club, Slade Valley has become very close to my heart. I enjoy the challenge of the golf course very much and I enjoy participating in regular Club Competitions throughout the year. There is a great social scene in the Golf Club, I have made many new friends since joining the Club and I hope I can make many more in future years. We are continually welcoming new Members, we believe we have a great facility and a great golf course. I look forward to working with the Club Committee and continuing the great work over recent years with our very active Men’s Club. Slade Valley Golf Club offers excellent views, the scenery is second to none and we hope to attract new visitors to play the golf course and visit our clubhouse. Finally, I hope all Members will enjoy their golf this year. I also wish Lady Captain Frances and the Ladies Club the very best for 2019. Yours in Golf, Bob.
