Message from Club Captain

On the night of the 31st January this year I was the proudest man in the country when I took over as Captain of Larne Golf Club. I never thought when Jack Stewart interviewed me thirty years ago that I would hold this esteemed position. I am looking forward to the year ahead, and as people might know, I will also continue with my role as Match & Handicap Convenor. In this respect I would encourage all members to support the Captains of teams representing Larne Golf Club, by putting their name forward for the various teams. Let's keep fingers crossed for a bit of success this year.

I have been married to Eleanor for 24 years, and have a lovely daughter Stephanie. They have promised their support throughout the year, but I can already sense signs of their patience wearing thin. I have tried to convince them that golf is such a great game that they should take it up, however 'a good walk wasted' is their sentiment.

I congratulate our Lady Captain Lisa Fairley and wish her all the best for the coming year. In recent years our Ladies have had some great successes in Ulster and Ireland competitions and I wish all of their teams every success in their Competitions this year.


Can I take this opportunity to thank the Council in advance for what I hope will be a very successful

and prosperous year for Larne Golf Club.


Finally I would like to use this message to encourage every member to try and promote Larne Golf Club to their friends. We all know what a great a club we have, but let's get the word out there and tell the world that Larne Golf Club is the friendliest and most welcoming club to new members. Enjoy the year, whether you are a golfing member or an associate member

Message from Lady Captain

I am greatly honoured to be Lady Captain following in the footsteps of so many great golfers and dedicated members of the club before me.

I grew up in Dunmurry, attended Victoria College Belfast, studied European Languages and Business at Leeds Metropolitan University and now work for an Engineering Company, in Belfast, manufacturing valves for oil and water pipelines around the world. In 2004 I was elected President of the Belfast Junior Chamber of Commerce and it was here that where I met my husband David. Together we have a lovely 4 year old daughter, called Caroline.

Since I was 6 months old I have spent every summer in Brown’s Bay hence my initial relationship with Larne Golf club. As a teenager I played in the Junior Competitions every Tuesday morning during the summer months and while at university I obtained a golf handicap. Once I had secured a handicap I continued to play in the Ladies Competitions at Larne Golf Club each Friday.

Until recently I thought that my golfing genes came from my mother’s mother, my grandmother Norah Tyler, who was Lady Captain of Larne in 1962/63. However I have since discovered that, on my father’s side, my great grandfather, William Grieve, was not only a golf club maker but also a scratch golfer at St Andrews, the home of golf. In addition to being a scratch golfer he spent the early years of the 20th Century, along with an number of other Scottish golf professionals, introducing the game of golf to America.

As Lady Captain I will do my utmost to promote and support the Ladies Section of Larne Golf Club both within the club itself and throughout the wider golfing community. I wish everyone representing Larne Golf Club a successful year, and hope the ladies and girls participating in the Golf Taster Sessions and Junior Golf Development Program respectively, enjoy the benefits of these schemes.


Finally, I wish the Club Captain, Stephen Hunter, an enjoyable year and look forward to working alongside him.

Captain’s Day

Stephen Hunter’s Captain’s Day was held on Saturday 21st. June.   The weather was kind and a fantastic day was had by all.

The Captains started his speech at the evening dance and prize giving by saying what an honour and a privilege it was for him to be Captain of such a great and friendly golf club. He went on to thank all of the individual committee convenors and gave a special thanks to our green keeper James Kane for preparing the course so well. In fact the captain said that in all the years he had been a member he had never known the course to be in such a great condition and so well presented. This was greeted with a tremendous round of applause from all present. He also thanked all those who sent him cards and presents wishing him good luck for Captains Day.


We hope to have photos taken on the day up on the Club’s web photo album very soon - watch for links. For a more detailed report download this month’s ‘Bell’ Newsletter at the link further down the page.
