Captain Scramble.

18th. Mar.  On a day when the gods smiled on us throughout the rounds, 16 teams joined in the festivities of the deferred Captains Scramble and The Captains and President want to thank all those that turned out to make the day such a success. The day was topped off when we returned to the club house for some excellent Tea, food and comradery thank you to the ladies that supplied all of these in spades.  It was a close run result being only .3 of a shot between the first three teams: In 1st. place with a net score of 28.8 was Kathleen Maher, Eamon Connolly and Bernie O’Rourke. 2nd.  with a net score of 28.9 was Tom McGrath, Cian Langdon and Evelyn Lyons and in a very close 3rd. covering the 9 holes in a net 29.1 where Ollie Murray, Pat Shelly and our Skipper Caroline Fogarty.  A sincere appreciation to the wonderful Course team for getting the course playable although still suffering from the persistent wet weather it looked and played great.  Thanks again to all that contributed to the day.  Women’s Captain Caroline, President Tommy and Captain Les Mason.
