Last weekend we held our postponed Captains prize. The first round was held on Friday and Saturday the conditions were very tough both days with a strong wind on Friday and heavy showers on Saturday.

After the first round Thomas Hanley and Eamon Mulcahy led the field with 65’s. In third place was Eddie Stapleton with a 67. One hundred players then played a final round on Sunday morning. There was some great golf played on Sunday with excellent scores coming in all day. The early club house leader was John Merrigan who had a 66 to go with a 70 for a total of 138. This score was equaled a number of times but never surpassed till the last three ball came in.

Then Eddie Stapleton showing all the experience gained from playing on numerous teams down through the years posted an excellent 66 to go with his earlier 67 to finish on 133 to win by five shots. Eddie saved the best till last when he put his second shot on the 18th to six inches for an easy birdie. Later that evening a great night was held in the club house where during the presentation Captain Joe thanked all those involved in the successful weekend.

This weekend we have an open singles kindly sponsored I.T.W performance polymers.
