Mens Captain's Message

Mens Captain - 
Mr. Liam Guckian    
Dear Members,
It's hard to believe that this time last year I was introducing myself as your 2020/21 Men's Captain of Co. Meath Golf Club and discussing how and when we might get back playing golf after the first lockdown. A full year later and we're in pretty much the same place. I want to thank all the members that have worked with us to get us playing golf safely last summer, and thanks also to the committees and staff of the club that have maintained the course during the lockdowns and had it ready for play when we reopened. This crisis has taken a toll on society.
We all have family and friends that have passed away or been seriously ill from Covid 19. I wish to remember those members here that will never get to play another round of golf at Co. Meath Golf club and extend my deepest sympathies to their families on their loss. It's been a year like no other for sure. 
As I said last year - golf is not the most important thing at this time, that said - it is high on the list and let me reassure you all that the committee are in constant contact with the authorities and the GUI to ensure that we are all up to speed on how and when the course can be reopened for play. An update will follow on the return to play protocols once we have clarity on the detail. Once we have the course open again we will look to see how we can run our competitions ensuring that the guidance and protocols are being followed. 
However, for now, I want to wish you all good health. Stay safe and I very much look forward to meeting you on the fairway as soon as possible.
Your Men’s Captain,
Liam Guckian
