Comps Sec David McGuinness has advised that winter rules have now been removed for all Mens and Ladies Club competitions.


Michael Charmer (3) added the Fuller’s London Pride Gold Medal to his tally in winning the SMP Partners sponsored medal competition. Charmer will now represent Castletown in the knockout round to establish which island golfer plays in the final at Woodhall Spa.

Starting with a birdie, Charmer finished the front nine at one over par. A double bogey on the 11th was eradicated by beautiful back-to-back birdies on the following two holes and his birdie, bogey finish meant Charmer carded 73, nett 70.

Also on nett 70, was ‘flower-man’ Mike Horsthuis (11) who shot nine pars and a birdie. He was winning right up to the final green where he wilted to a dastardly double bogey following a similar bloomer on the 10th, so he was denied the sweet smell of success.

Charlie Ross (8) birdied the par five 3rd and recorded ten pars. His double bogey on the 9th meant Ross finished third with 79, nett 71.  Steven Boyd (2) stood at two under par on the 13th tee. Then his chances were effectively blown away by back-to-back bogeys. Another on the last hole determined that Boyd had to settle for the category one prize on nett 71.

Congratulations and commiserations go to Lewis Howland (10) who has now deservedly become a single figures handicapper. His nett 71 won the category two prize but Howland was just five over par with two holes to go. A bogey and a sinful seven cost him the cup.

Dave Humbles (14) eagled the 3rd and finished the front nine at one under par but a naughty nine, a sad seven and a silly six led to a 14 over par back nine which was still good enough for the category 3/4 prize. Manny Manuja (18) was the first vet home on nett 73 to secure the senior’s section.

John Byrne £50, Richard Corke £30, Tic Connolly £20 and Mair Gardner £10, picked up the prizes in the pro’s Good Friday competition.

This Saturday is a stableford sponsored by Permanent Bank International and there will be two shotgun starts either side of the lunchtime prize presentation.

Ladies and Gentlemen the Club has been given the honour, this year, of hosting the IOM Men’s Golf Championship. This will be held between Saturday the 14th June (Qualifying Day) and Saturday June 21st. The Knockout rounds will be held on Tuesday the 17th,Wednesday the1 8th,Thursday the 19th with the Final on Saturday the 21st June. We hope that all low figure handicap members will enter the Championship and indeed  that many will progress to the Knockout stages. It would be great to have a Castletown winner on his home course.
It has been 12 years since we last hosted the Championship at Castletown and we would like to think that we can make it a memorable occasion. To achieve this we need the support of all our members, men and ladies. We need referees, spotters on each hole, people to work scoreboards, people to link communications between the clubhouse and the course, car park marshals, clubhouse greeters and people to cover other tasks that we have not even thought about as yet. We estimate we need at least 50 helpers on qualifying day and probably 30 on the other days.
In addition to hosting the Championship we have the task of hosting the Willie Kirkpatrick Event held over 36 holes on Sunday the 25th May. We have arranged for this to be sponsored by Manx Petroleums Limited. It is most appropriate we are hosting this in 2014 as it marks the 40th Anniversary of the late Mr Kirkpatrick being President of our club. We also need members help on this day carrying out similar tasks to those set out above for the Championship. It will also be a great trial event for us to identify any problems and take action to ensure they do not get repeated in the Championship.
This is therefore an appeal to all members. If you are able to help us on any of the days referred to above, please volunteer to do so by notifying myself on Karran@manx.net or the Secretary, Peter, on Probbo@manx.net.  with an indication of the type of task you would be willing to carry out for us.
Let us make these, events of which we can be very proud.

Geoff Karran

Dear Members of Castletown Golf Club Limited

It is an exciting time at Castletown. We now operate a mixed club under a Company banner and this year we will host the Isle of Man Men’s Golf Championship and the Willie Kirkpatrick 2 round competition, the latter event being sponsored by Miss Irene Pugh and Manx Petroleums. Let us hope we will see Castletown members winning these prestigious events, as well as retaining the IOM Scratch league.

We have settled in to our magnificent new clubhouse, where we are now able to host all our social events and tremendous work continues to be carried out by our hard working green keepers to improve our course. Few can argue that it is the finest on the Island. We are all very grateful to Philip  Vermuelen and his family for their continued drive and enthusiasm to make our course achieve a higher ranking in Britain

I thank Past President Jack Yardley and Past Captain Barry Watts for all their hard work and endeavours on behalf of the club during their terms of office.

I look forward to working closely with our new President Dave Bell, our Lady Captain Louna Vermuelen, my excellent Men’s committee and Louna’s Ladies Committee to give us all great golf, good company, and a lot of happy memories of 2014 down here at Castletown

Geoff Karran

Chairman of Directors

The Course

Golf has been played at Castletown since 1892 when Old Tom Morris designed the course. The course in its present form was laid out by golfing legend Mackenzie Ross in the late 20s and early 30s and provides some of the purest links golf anywhere in the British Isles. 
The links has hosted, among other events, the PGA Cup (1979), Europro Tour 2002, Manx Classic Pro Am and the Duke of York Young Champions trophy in 2003 and again in 2005.
The present seventh hole is named the Race Course because, there, a century and a half before the first ever English Derby, the then Earl of Derby  held the first ever Manx Derby over three furlongs. This was also thirty-nine years prior to the Newmarket race, which has been proclaimed to be the oldest horse race in existence
