Captains Prize 2014

 

Captain’s Day was held on Saturday 28th June with a great turnout on the day. The competition was played off the back markers and along with difficult pin positions scoring proved difficult on the day.  The format of an extra 9 hole playoff proved very popular with 18 golfers qualifying to determine the winner.  Darren Carroll (12) leading after 18 holes with a nett 65 continued his good form into the extra 9 holes and returned victorious with a combined net score of 102.  5 handicapper Paul Whelan returned in 2nd place with a net 107 while Club Secretary Niall Kiely (3) took the gross prize with a great score of 1 over par.   P.J. Dreeling (9) returned in 3rd spot with a combined total of 108.5 while John Connolly took 4th spot half a shot further back.  Liam Whitely (23) took 5th place while the Past Captain’s prize went to our current President Jim Walsh.    Front 9 and Back 9 went to Keith McCullagh and Tony Dooley respectively both returning a score of 34 nett.

 

In the ladies section Eithne Donnelly (29) proved a popular winner with a score of 68 nett ahead of Mary Condon (21) with 72 nett, the gross prize on the day went to Kate Hennessy with 85 gross.  Ladies Honorary Secretary, Kerri Bolger took 3rd spot on a countback from Sinead Kearney 4th, with a score of 73 nett.  The Past Captains prize went to Breda Bolger (13) while Catherine O’Driscoll and Margaret Bower took the Front 9 and Back 9 respectively.  The beginners prize went to Mary Murphy.

 

A great night was had by all and the Men’s Captain, Declan Davis and Lady Captain Deirdre McCabe were delighted with the turnout and thanked everyone for their commitment and support.  A large number of members and guests turned out that night in support of the Captains’ Dinner.  Presentation of prizes was followed by speeches of appreciation and thanks by both Captains.
