As it approaches the end of its third year as Castleisland Members’ Golf Club the management would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who helped in any way to sustain the club over this period.

“The club, in that time, has striven to provide and promote affordable golf in its catchment area for all age groups. This was shown this year with junior club member, Daniel Culloty winning the Molyneux Cup in Beaufort,” said spokesperson, Mairéad Guirey.

Club’s Twin Focus

“The club focus is twofold: to promote golf as a sport and leisure activity in the locality and also using it as a vehicle to support local tourism.

“We do so by providing another amenity that visitors to our county can enjoy in the area. And its only a good drive away that some greats like Con Houlihan and Dick Fitzgerald grew up,” said Mairéad.

Chamber Alliance in Support

Castleisland Chamber Alliance has been supportive in promoting the club as chamber Chairperson Patricia Walsh explained:

“Castleisland Golf Club is a fantastic facility at the Gateway to Kerry and one which we are happy to support and promote. It is an absolute credit to the committee and management at the club.

“We’re delighted but not surprised to hear that their membership is growing year on year and we wish them continued success in the future,” said Ms. Walsh.

Valued Members’ Support

In conclusion, Mairéad Guirey takes up the story: “Once again the valued support of members, visitors and sponsors cannot be overstated as we enter the next phase of the club’s progression.

“Club Captain Jonathan Kelliher and Lady Captain Catherine Walsh are launching an opportunity for you to support the club.
