Reflecting upon the positive cohesive attitude of members, employees and volunteers, Moate Golf Club is looking towards the fairways future with aim of on course development to the fore despite the persistence presence of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Speaking this week, Club PRO, Andy Dunne, noted the resilience shown in recent months as challenges were confronted with a positive mindset ensuring Moate Golf Club continues to provide a course worthy of its prominent place within the Midlands sporting environment.
“To our members, employees and volunteers, you have all shown immense resilience during the last 10 months adapting day by day to the challenges placed before us.
“As a club we are determined to match that resilience by working incredibly hard on your behalf. Our staff and volunteers continue to work safely so that we can deliver a facility to be proud of even though there isn’t a golf ball in play just now.
“We know that many of you look to the golf club as a place where you can meet friends and enjoy one of the safest sports there is. While observing the restrictions imposed by this lockdown is the sensible thing to do it doesn’t make it any easier to forego the sport we love.
“One thing you can be certain of is that we will get through this together and retain the strength and spirit that makes this club what it is. From everyone connected to the club we want you to stay connected and we look forward to welcoming you all back when we get permission to do so.
“We certainly haven’t been idle. Recent and planned activity includes third tee box relocation to the clubhouse side of the drain, moving the netting from the temporary third tee box, fourth tee box levelling project including a new wall, refurbishment of the ladies toilets, the carpeting and repainting of the entrance hallway to the clubhouse, the creation, by Padraig Keenan, of a WHS quiz for our website and the repositioning of our defibrillator so it is accessible outside club opening hours.
“The critical thing we need members to do right now is to remain as members of the golf club. The more of us that can pay our 2021 fees by February 28 the better it is for the future of what is your club.
“We appreciate it is a difficult time for many but please remember we have a very easy to use facility where your membership fees can be spread over 10 months and you will get full details of this when we issue our 2021 annual renewal notices shortly,” Mr Dunne stated.
