New book charts the 20-year history of Powerscourt Golf Club
MEMBERS and friends of Powerscourt Golf Club recently gathered to mark the publication of a book celebrating the club’s 20 years of success and to toast its next 20 years. MC on the day was TV and radio presenter Craig Doyle, a Powerscourt member.
The book is dedicated to the late Dr Michael Slazenger, Chairman and Chief Executive of Powerscourt Estate, who oversaw the development of the two golf courses at Powerscourt.
His vision, in its brilliance, and his venture, in its boldness, has produced a timeless legacy. This legacy and inheritance has been carefully nurtured by many people for more than 20 years.
The book is a celebration of members, past and present.
It is also a celebration of a community and the strong links forged with other communities.
The book is big in ambition with more than 240 pages, more than 900 photographs, provided by almost 100 contributors. It is full of intimate insights on the club’s key develop- ments shared by the owners and management. Also, all the captains and a great number of members offered their own delightful personal anecdotes and stories. These stories are worth telling, as much as they are well told.
