We at Charleville Golf Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Eoghan Buckley as our new Golf Course Superintendant. Eoghan will take over the reins on November 3rd from Seamus Lyons who has served us faithfully for the last number of years.
You would have to agree that "Famous Seamus" as he is known in golfing circles, has always had the good of the club at his heart. He always had the course in immaculate condition especially in the past few years, when budgets were tight. Seamus always led from the front and no job was too big. He can now relax and enjoy more golf and frequent trips to his beloved Ballyheigue along with his wife Margaret. A great debt is owed to Seamus by all at Charleville Golf Club and we wish you a long healthy and happy retirement.
Eoghan hails from County Laois and was brought up golfing at Mountrath Golf Club where he would later become the Superintendant for three years in 2005.
Eoghans family have a strong background in Horticulture, his father and brother work with coillte so it was no great surprise that Eoghan combined his two passions to forge his career. He studied Horticulture in The Botanic Gardens in Dublin, and then progressed his studies by moving to the UK to complete a BSc in Turfgrass Science and Golf Course Management in Myerscough College. He then completed his studies at Cranfield University with a MSc in Sports Surface Technologies in 2003.
Eoghans resume shows a list of impressive places that he worked worldwide Portmarnock Old, Tpc Sawgrass, Congressional Country Club, The Heritage and more recently Seymore Golf and Country Club In Vancouver Canada.
Eoghan brings his wealth of experience and knowledge to the Club and may we wish him all the success for the future. We would also like to welcome Eoghans wife Marie and their two small children, Donnacah 2 ½ and Ruairi 2months who will be making the move over the next few weeks.
