Presidents Message


Mr. John Ennis

Dear Members,
From the outset I would like to say how proud and privileged I feel to have been nominated to represent Co Meath Golf Club and you, the Members, as President for 2020/21.
Who would have thought, in their wildest dreams, that we would have spent the last few months cocooning, self-isolating and wearing gloves and facemasks as we ventured outdoors. However, it now seems that we are ready to embark on the slow road to normality, the new normality, 2020/21 style and beyond.
Our golf and competitions have been impacted to date and will be for the forseeable future, but I'm confident that both the Men's and Ladies' Clubs will ensure that suitable alternatives are arranged going forward, while staying within the recommended protocols.
I would like to thank all concerned with keeping CMGC functioning during our recent closure. In particular many thanks to the various committees, to Janice in the office and also to our hard-working course staff. I'm confident that as you all return to the greens and fairways (and rough!), your visual experience will be a memorable one (your golfing experience is up to you!).
Finally, may I say that as the year progresses, I would hope to meet and play with as many of you as possible. I wish you and your families and friends continued good health, happiness and great golf in 2021.
Stay safe and Stay well.
John Ennis
