Dear Captain, Council, Members, Staff & Volunteers
I hope this letter finds you all well and that 2021 has been a success for Massereene Golf Club.
On behalf of the European Tour, I would like to thank you all for the support during the week of the ISPS Handa World Invitational and in the build up to the Tournament.
As always, the entire staff of Massereene Golf Club put in a massive effort to get the tournament across the line, especially during such a difficult time with not only the restrictions around Covid but the extreme Heat leading up to the tournament followed by a flash flood.
Mark Cassidy and his team should be credited for all the hours they put in during the week and in the build up to the tournament. Courses aren’t prepared in a week; it takes months of hard labour and carful planning to produce such a fantastic course.
Hopefully the members managed to enjoy it as well and you start to see the benefits not only to the course but Massereene being advertised on a global scale.
To all the staff who gave their time and worked irregular hours the week of the tournament, when asked nothing was ever too much to do. We know that we request a lot, sometimes at short notice, so thank you for being so accommodating.
A massive thanks to all the volunteers who give up their time to help run the tournament and to the members who give up their course. Without them we wouldn’t be able to have these tournaments.
There are a very special bunch of members at the Massereene Golf Club that give so much time and effort, not only on the week of the tournament but in the months leading up to it. These efforts aren’t just for one golf tournament but for all the members to enjoy Massereene Golf Club on a weekly basis. You are all a credit to the club; I hope you all continue to enjoy being part of Massereene Golf Club.
Good luck with the remainder of 2021 and I wish you all the best for 2022. I look forward to catching up soon and seeing Massereene Golf Club grow from strength to strength.
