New book charts the 20-year his­tory of Pow­er­scourt Golf Club

Bray People - - NEWS -

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.
