Vice Captains’ Junior Classic
Our Vice Captains’ Ann Maher and Kieran Cunningham have organised a classic for their Vice Captains’ prize this year with all the money raised going to our Junior club. The competition is a three person Champagne Scramble with special prizes for ladies only teams. It is being held on the weekend of the 6th and 7th of April. As this is for a very good cause please organize a team and ask your friends from other clubs as this is an open competition, all are welcome, if you want to play and have no team, contact Brendan or Louise on 052 6132213 and we will get a team for you. Full details next week.
