Honorary Life Membership awarded to Mr. Robert “Bobby” Vickers
This year, 2019 is the 25th anniversary of the opening of our 18-hole golf course. To mark this event the Committee of Management at its monthly meeting in November of this year agreed to a proposal from the Men’s Committee to award Honorary Life Membership to Mr. Bobby Vickers in recognition of his role as Chairman of the development subcommittee which successfully managed the 18 hole course project from 1992 to 1994 and also in recognition of his contribution to the development of the Club over the past 50 years.
Bobby Joined Wicklow Golf Club in 1966 aged 20 he served the Club as President in 1990 and Captain in 1996.
Bobby was a long-term Committee and Subcommittee member particularly in the area of the golf course.
As a golfer Bobby has represented the club in Senior Cup, Junior Cup, Barton Shield, Provincial Towns Cup, Jimmy Bruen Shield, J.B.Carr and Duggan Cup, he was a member of the winning Brennan Cup Team in 1976, he was part of winning Cullen Cup three in a row teams from 1994 to 1996, he was on the winning Barton Cup Team in 1986 and was on the Irish Mixed Foursomes Team which became the first Club team ever to reach an All-Ireland Final in 1985.
Bobby has won the Presidents Prize in 1971, Club Championship in 1971 and 1977, Men’s Foursomes in 1974 and 1995, Killy Cup in 1969 and 1979, and Golfer of the Year in 1977.
But undoubtedly Bobby’s greatest achievements were in the area of course development. He was a long-term Chairman of the greens Committee and in 1992, 93 and 94 he combined that role with the role of Chairperson of the 18-hole Golf Course Development Subcommittee with the assistance of Billy Earls (deceased), John Solon (deceased) and Sean McGauley.
To this day Bobby remains totally committed to Wicklow Golf Club as a member, a player, a spectator, a sponsor and socially.
Presenting the award to Bobby at the 2019 AGM, Club Captain Mr. Ian Mooney said it was his privilege, on behalf of the members of Wicklow Golf Club, to present a Certificate of Honorary Life Membership to Mr. Bobby Vickers.
