Michael Jackson

Captain





















A Q&A with your 2017 Captain.

When did you join Greenisland Golf Club?
I joined as a house member some 12 years ago and then converted to full member.

What attracted you to join Greenisland GC?
The members, especially the Captain and Council members at the time I joined, went out of their way to make my wife and I welcome. I was then coerced into becoming a playing
member!

Can you remember your handicap when you joined?
24

What is your handicap now?
25

Have you seen much change with the course or club during your time here?
Both the course and the clubhouse have improved dramatically over the past year or so.
A credit to the efforts of the Greens & and House & Property conveners.

What is your favourite hole on the course and why?
18th - It's just before the 19th

What is your least favourite hole on the course and why?
2nd - The trinket has a big ball magnet in it

What is your favourite course played?
Mahony's Point - Killarney GC

Your favourite club in your bag is?
Hybrid 4 iron

Have you ever had a hole in one?
Not yet, but hopefully soon.

Who is your favourite professional golfer and why?
Phil Mickelson, he's left handed and unconventional!

Who would be in your ideal 4 ball?
Too contentious to answer

Finally, what are you looking forward to the most, in your year in Captaincy?
Promoting Greenisland probably the best "Members" Clubs in NI!

Many thanks to our Captain for taking the time and effort to answer the questions put to him.
We wish him a successful and memorable year ahead!
