Many thanks,




After a week of wind and rain it was a pleasure to play the Tower Insurance sponsored yellow ball AM-AM in bright but bitter weather last Saturday. One of the first teams out, Messrs: Chris B Kelly (13), David Campbell (17), Anthony O’Mahony (6) and John Dean (21) posted 83 points which stood the test of time and took the turkeys by two clear points.

Kelly our new vice captain carded on each of the first eight holes which he completed in an impressive two over par for 20 points. He added seven more from four holes on the back nine. Campbell used his generous shot allowance to ample affect scoring twelve points on his four compulsory holes, and with nothing worse than a nett par he amassed a total of 25 points over ten holes.

O’Mahony scored 20 points on just nine holes including six gross pars and a lucrative birdie two on the 16th. With such prolific team scoring Dean was almost denied the opportunity to post points on anything other than his four compulsory holes. However, he competently completed them with 11 points and added those vital two winning points with a nifty nett par on the 18th.

Peter Thompson (20), Jack Yardley (12) and Robert Quine (17) scored 73 points but needed a joker to complete their card. Peter Miller (12) was plucked from relative obscurity and his comparatively modest eight points over seven holes was enough to purloin a prize. By comparison Yardley carded 32 points from 13 holes including a four pointer three on the 10th. Quine contributed 21 points over nine holes, including a nett eagle on the 3rd, and Thompson added 16 points from eight holes.

Messrs, Harding, Thoday, Taylor and Lambert also scored 81 points but lost on countback. They were not too upset having won prizes in the first turkey shoot and consequently were carrying a ten shot team penalty.

Chris Dunn nearly holed out on the 16th but won the nearest the pin prize sponsored by www.yourpersonalwineservice.com . Had he sunk his birdie putt his team would have been placed second in the main competition. This Saturday a prize presentation precedes an 11a.m. shotgun start in Tower Insurance sponsored series.





At the Club’s AGM Dave Bell was re-elected president. Roy Clague was installed as captain with Chris B Kelly as his vice. Dawn Killa became the lady captain with Dawn Sissons as her lady in waiting. Mary van Lier was reappointed to the board and Simon Willoughby was voted in to fill the other vacancy.

It took a nett eagle on the 18th from former club captain Steve McGowan to determine the winners of the Tower Insurance sponsored 4BBB turkey shoot last Saturday. McGowan (12) and Martin Derbyshire (20) were one of three teams tied on 41 points with just one hole to play, but none could match McGowan’s final fantastic three shots for four points. He also sank six pars over twelve holes which yielded 30 points to add to the 15 that Derbyshire delivered from his half dozen.

Second on countback with 44 points came Richard Creamore (12) and Alan Rowe (5) who had been cut a shot for having the audacity to be in the winning team the previous weekend. Creamore was the main scorer with 28 from eleven holes whereas Rowe supplied the quality with sweet 16 points from seven holes including a birdie on the 4th.

Former club president Manny Manuja (20) scored 38 points on his own, helped in part by a four pointer three on the 9th to balance out his blob on the 6th. Needing a joker, David Creane (21) was selected, and he added the vital six points which promoted Manuja to third place. Hence, Creane picked up a prize which otherwise he and his original playing partner, Gordon Drake (19) would have been awarded for their 42 points.

The final prizes went to Steve Zybert (13) and David Quayle (3) who scored 43 points after cancelling out a disappointing bogey on the 3rd with a marvellous nett eagle from Zybert on the very next hole. 

Adrian Copley’s 9 iron tee shot finished within a metre of the pin on the 16th to win the wine sponsored by www.yourpersonalwineservice.com . This Saturday Tower Insurance sponsors a yellow ball AM-AM.





There was a tight finish in the Tower Insurance sponsored pyramid AM-AM turkey shoot at Castletown. Two teams finished out front with 88 points, but the winners on countback can thank the melt-down on the last two holes which beset their close rivals. In this format the pressure mounts as only one score is required on the first six holes, two on the next half dozen and three on the final third of the course.

Coping marginally better on the back nine, with 53 points compared to 52, the winners Alan Rowe (6), Neil Cartwright (10), Terry Ditchfield (13) and John Ledwidge (18) are all Winter Special members and can now look forward to a free lunch to go with their discounted golf.

Cartwright opened with a birdie after driving the 1st green and contributed 24 points from ten scoring holes. Both he and Ditchfield had the distinction of posting scores on each of the vital last six holes, which the team completed with an unbeatable 38 points. Ditchfield was the team’s most valuable player scoring 29 points over twelve holes including some cracking drives which delivered six nett birdies.

Ledwidge scored 19 points from seven holes, and his claim to fame was a magnificent eight foot ‘tap-in’ nett eagle on the Road Hole. Low handicapper Rowe didn’t get a look-in until the 7th where he secured a nett birdie and followed it with a real one on the 12th. With nothing worse than a nett par Rowe added 16 points from seven sublime holes.

In second place Mark Walker (11), Ben O’Neill (21), Keith Bernard (17) and Stuart Butler (16) had five gross birdies over sixteen sweet holes and were leading by seven clear points. Those were all frittered away as, although four super drives found the middle of the 17th fairway, they walked off with just three points between them, and could only salvage five points on the last. 

Chris Kneen finished closest on the 16th and won the wine sponsored by Will Halsall of www.yourpersonalwineservice.com  This Saturday the Club’s AGM takes place at 16:30 after the Tower Insurance sponsored 4BBB.





James Kelly (9) and Ged Power (4) were the runaway winners of the Tower Insurance sponsored turkey shoot two man Texas Scramble at Castletown last Saturday. Their nifty nine under par 63 turned into a nett 59.1 after application of thirty percent of their combined handicaps. This left them 2.4 ahead of their nearest rivals.

Their plan was quite simple, Kelly was supposed to put a ball in play, freeing Power to hit out and reduce the course to a pitch or a putt. It worked wonderfully on the first six holes which they played in six under par. Power was unfazed that their collaborative eagle on the 1st didn’t qualify for the 2’s competition as he soon slotted in his eight foot putt after driving the green on the 340 yards 4th. Beautiful birdies on the 3rd and 6th meant they reached the turn in 31.

Another powerful birdie blitz from the 10th to the 12th moved them to nine under par but disturbingly Kelly missed the green on the short 13th. Consequently he needed to post three more tee shots over the last five holes. Kelly turned hero as he systematically shrunk his deficit with no detriment to the score, and they also used his delightful drive on the final fairway.

In second place with 66, nett 61.5, came Chris Lee (11) and Richard Corke (4) who were five under at the turn. Playing par golf they ran out of inspiration until finishing with a flourish with a vital birdie on the 18th. Third prize went to JJ Moore (5) and Andrew Challenor (+1) with 63, nett 61.8, including a tap-in two for Chal on the 13th.  Stephen Keegan (4) did similar on the 8th to help Mark Cairney (6) into 4th place with 65, nett 62. However, their short hole efforts may not have been as rewarding as Sam Skelton’s superlative shot on the 16th which won the wine sponsored by Will Halsall from www.yourpersonalwineservice.com

A Tower Insurance sponsored pyramid AM-AM competition awaits us this weekend, and on Saturday 6th December the Club’s AGM is at 16:30.





After twenty years of trying Simon Willoughby (12) finally won his Christmas dinner. Together with Dave Allan (13), Guy Pickard (6) and Mark Kneale (15) they plotted their way to a win in the Tower Insurance sponsored turkey shoot yellow ball AM-AM at Castletown last Saturday.

Optimising their starting order to maximise their shot allowance they capitalised by landing four nett eagles and thirteen nett birdies. Willoughby drew the short straw as his compulsory four holes included the 5th and two others were outside of his allowance. Never-the-less, Willoughby wafted in three pars and a nett par on the Road Hole for 9 points plus 15 more from five further finishes including a nett eagle on the 14th.

Allan’s allotted holes hauled in 11 points and he had six of the best other scores which added another 17 including fantastic four pointers on the 7th and 14th.  Shrewdly, low handicapper Pickard received shots on all of his compulsory holes and he didn’t disappoint. Three pars and a birdie brought 12 points and he added another 12 with five further finishes. Kneale notched up 6 points from his holes including two doubles bogeys which fortunately fell where he received shots. Adding another 9 points over four holes completed the card and helped bring home the bacon with 91 points.

Two shots back with 89 the second placed winners can trace this shortfall to the very first hole where John Newson (5) was trusted with the yellow ball. Mistake! He four putted for nil points and was ribbed for the rest of the round. However, he eventually contributed 15 points from eight attempts. Conversely, Dave Morris (10) knocked them in from all angles to record 30 points from twelve holes. Mark Teare (6) and Ross Byrne (16) were the ‘steady eddies’ providing 23 and 21 points respectively after eight holes each.

On the 16th Mel Todd was a metre away from his twenty something hole-in-one, but it was close enough to win a beautiful bottle from www.yourpersonalwineservice.com

It is a two man Texas scramble in the Tower Insurance sponsored series this weekend.





Julian Sutton (1) did the double at a wet and windy Castletown, winning the Tower Insurance sponsored four man Texas Scramble turkey shoot for the second year running.  Sutton’s son, Mark (-1), was on the start sheet but unable to attend so this time Julian was ably assisted by Lewis Long (5) and Ross Dennett (3). With an opening eagle and eleven birdies for a gross 59, nett 58.1, they clearly didn’t miss their fourth man. However, their margin of victory after a paltry ten percent shot allowance saw them pick up the poultry by a mere 0.4.

Holing out with a fifty yard chip Sutton started the show in style and the momentum was maintained as the terrific trio’s approach shot accuracy meant they only needed 25 putts, many within ‘a gimme’ range. Just six holes failed to submit to their birdie barrage, and the team effort was beautifully balanced as they completed the course cracking six tee shots each.

The second placed team comprised Steve Zybert (13), Andrew Gerrard (5), Dave Quayle (3) and Michael Charmer (4). They squelched round in 61, nett 58.5, shooting eleven birdies including a tap-in two for Charmer on the 13th.  Each player needed a minimum of three tees shots so Zybert was sweating slightly with three holes to go and only one on the card. He easily remedied this over the next two holes which were duly parred.

Messrs Steven Boyd (1), Gerald Bradley (2), Mark Teare (6) and Chris Lee (11) landed an eagle and eight birdies for 62, nett 60, and were placed third ahead of Daryl Callister (0), Will Halsall (10), Frankie Doherty (8) and Stuart Campbell (12), who had eleven birdies and two bogeys for 63, nett 60.  Alas, both teams finished just outside the prizes.

Whether anyone actually hit the 16th green is a mystery because there was no marker to denote nearest the pin. Therefore, the sponsored bottle of fine wine from www.yourpersonalwineservice.com may become a magnum this weekend in the Tower Insurance sponsored modified AM-AM.

Discounted winter golf membership is still available, call Johnny Evans on 822211 for details.





A four man AM-AM was the first competition in the Tower Insurance sponsored series of Turkey Shoots held at Castletown last Saturday. The early morning starters had the best of the weather as was evidenced by the fact that the winners, Colin E Magee (7), Colin C Magee (11), John Byrne (12) and Mel Todd (8), were the first group out and second spot went to another team of dew disturbers.

Byrne blazed the first six holes in two over par for 14 points. A birdie on the 9th added another four so Byrne had posted 18 points at the turn. Three nett birdies and a bogey boosted Byrne’s total to 28 from eleven scoring holes. Colin E Magee loves the wind and consequently was the second most valued player contributing 23 points over ten holes including a beautiful birdie for four points on the 6th.

Todd sprung to life on the back nine. Starting with an 80 yard chip-in birdie on the 11th, Todd had a super spell of six holes, taking his tally to 20 points from nine notations. Such stellar play meant that Colin C Magee could only squeeze in on six holes from which he hoisted 15 points for three nett birdies and three nett pars. Their team total of 86 points saw them trot off with the trophy.

Two points back with 84 came Francis Thoday (13), Bob Taylor (11), Malcolm Lambert (9) and last, but certainly not least, Alan Harding (15). Harding’s hefty haul was 33 points from 14 holes and they could have used his efforts on another two! However, it was a true team endeavour of steady stuff with just one three point hole, but not a single gross birdie between them.

Fergal McKenna (21), Kevin Paige (13), Chris Westerman (23) and Fraser Grant (16) were temporarily placed second but a stableford scoring mistake relegated them to third with 83 points.

Phil Games accuracy on the 16th purloined the prize provided by Will Halsall of www.yourpersonalwineservice.com. Another fine bottle awaits us on Saturday in the Tower Insurance sponsored four man Texas Scramble.



25 OCTOBER 2014


32 stableford points is rarely something to get excited about, but that was all Gerry Ganly (14) needed to win the Permanent Bank International sponsored Green Keepers Benefit competition in the challenging conditions at Castletown.

Ganly lost two balls in the sea and one in the undergrowth on the first six holes of an eventful front nine where he accumulated 12 points from six nett pars. However, with putts dropping in from all angles Ganly added a splendid 20 points on the all important back nine which included four gross pars and four nett pars.

Coming second on countback consistent Kyle McConnell (13) scored 18 of his 32 points over the last nine holes. All four of his double bogeys coincided with shot holes so McConnell had the distinction of being one of only three players to score points on every hole.

Unerringly finding every fairway, third placed John Newson (5) finished with five straight pars for 31 points and third place on countback. With just five nett bogeys Newson was the second player to complete the course without a blemish.

Practice paid off for Stephen Keegan (4) who braved the elements most days this past week. His 31 points earned him the category 1/2 prize and included a rare, and therefore lucrative, two on the 13th. Unfortunately, he joined 49 others in failing to finish the 6th which is aptly named “The Ruins”.

Dave Allan (13) was the category 3/4 winner with 31 points in an oscillating round where three sevens, a birdie and an N/R were interspersed with pars, nett pars and the odd nil pointer. Steven Boyd (1) was the final player to score on every hole but his 30 points for sixth place won him no prizes. Conversely, our president Dave Bell (22), nursing a ‘niggley’ knee, came seventh and his 30 points included three N/Rs, but his dogged determination deservedly secured the senior’s section.

The first of the Tower Insurance sponsored Turkey Shoot series begins this weekend and I take this opportunity to thank all of our sponsors as their generous support is much appreciated.



18 OCTOBER 2014


Mark Reynolds (24) won the rescheduled IOM Hearing Solutions sponsored Syd Ashworth Trophy played for the first time ever off the yellow tees at Castletown. Even so, because it was blowing a hoolie the course was more than a match for most of the field and only three players could meet or beat their handicap.

Reynolds hits the ball a country mile and aided by the wicked wind he reduced the Road Hole to a driver and a 9 iron for a nett eagle four pointer. Better still, Reynolds drained a sixteen foot birdie putt on the par five 7th, which converted into a fantastic five pointer albatross. Despite a sinful seven on the 9th Reynolds turned with 20 points and added 19 more with a steady back nine which included three nett birdies and four nett pars.

Second placed Doug Ross (17) won’t have known that he was the clubhouse leader with just one hole to go. However, after eight pars, five nett pars and just four nett bogeys Ross realised that his cumulative 38 points must have put him in with a chance. Regretfully, a nervy triple bogey finish cost him the cup.

Chris Lee (12) birdied the 3rd, impressively parred half the holes and had nett pars on four others. Failing to finish the Road Hole and troubles holing out on the final two par threes restricted Lee’s score to 36 points and third place.

Phil Games (14) pipped Richard Wild (17) to the category 3/4 prize. They both posted 34 points but by birdying the 12th and finishing par, par Games had the superior back nine. Last week’s second place winner, Peter Miller (12), continued his rich vein of form by taking the category 1/2 prize with 33 points and took a share of the two’s pot with his accuracy on the 13th. Julian White (25) motored in to take the senior’s section with 32 points from sixteen scoring holes.

This Saturday Permanent Bank International sponsors the Green Keepers Benefit stableford competition and there will be a shotgun start either side of the lunchtime prize presentation.



11 October 2014

Last Saturday was the Simcocks stableford, played in calm summery conditions. Producing low scoring and a CSS of 72.

Taking the seniors prize for the second time in recent weeks was John Dean(22). Deans two 9's of 19 points secured the win with 38pts.

Category 3/4 was won by Doug Ross(18), with 40pts. An impressive round scoring on every hole, with an inward nine of 21pts. A double bogey on the last was the only blemish costing Ross a place in the top 3.

Julian Sutton(1) took the Category 1/2 prize with a gross 70, 39pts. 4 birdies on the front 9 were added to on the 18th. Securing the win on the back 9 from Simon Willoughby(12).

Third place with 41pts was Chris Dunn(15). With nine 3pts and a 4pt Dunn could have expected to win, but low scoring left him in 3rd.

Late starter Peter Miller(14) posted a very steady 42pts. Nines of 20 & 22pts looked to have Miller coming out on top. Miller scored on every hole with six 3pts. Spoiling Millers party was Rodney Jackson(10). Jackson came in with 43pts, also scoring 2 or more on every hole. Five 3pts & one 4pt took Jackson to a gross 75 and first place.

Th WA Kirkpatrick final, sponsored by Miss Irene Pugh , was played on Sunday. Lewis Howland(6) won 4&3 against Jack Yardley(12). The previous Sunday the 4BBB final was won by Skelton & Gerrard 4&2 over Robertson & McConnell.

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

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
