MICHAEL BROSNAN RIP

There was great sadness in the club when we learned of the passing of Michael Brosnan. Michael was a loyal member of the club over a long number of years and he will be sadly missed by his many friends and fellow golfers. Throughout the years Michael worked with a number of committees and served as President of the club in 1999 and 2000 – he worked hard to improve the course and the enjoyment of our golfers.

Michael will be greatly missed by all our members and we offer our sincere condolences to his wife Patricia, daughters Fiona and Susan, son Brian and to his extended family and many friends.

May Michael rest in peace.
