Great turnout for Captains’ drive-in

Captains’ Drive-In

There was a great turn out for the Captains’ Drive-In on Sunday last to honour the four incoming Captains, Robert Reid (Club Captain), Chris Hayes (Lady Captain) and the Junior Captains’ Aoife Kavanagh and Eoin O’Connor.

The competition following the Drive-In was a Mixed Scramble and the winners were the team of Trish Butler, Con Lucey & Denis Burke with a score of 39.6 nett. The team of Christine Hickey, Frank Lonergan & Frank English were second with 40.7 nett and the team of Nora Daly, Donal O’Grady & Brian Higgins were third with 40.9. We wish Robert, Chris, Aoife and Eoin all the best for their year in office.


Damien Leen was the winner of last weeks 12 hole singles with a score of 27 points. Ciaran Bolton was second with 25 points the same score as Damien’s father Tom Leen who finished in third place.


Congratulations to Mary Kenrick on winning the Senior Alliance in the Goldcoast G.C. on Tuesday last and also to Norma O’Brien who was third.   Well done girls. Round 5 and 6 of the winter league is in progress until Saturday the 23rd of February. The February monthly 10 hole Stableford competition is ongoing and this can be played in conjunction with the league.
