Seamus Cody Perpetual Trophy.

Presented to the club by the Cody family as a recognition of the commitment and legacy from Seamus to the club.  Seamus was Captain in 1977 and President in 2005.  His dedication to the club is unquestionable in the landscaping, development and expertise on the maintenance of the equipment. His commitment contributed to the foundation of the current course layout. The 2021 competition for the Trophy was an 18h weekend competition.  16 were selected to compete in match play and resulted in the final between Seamus Bourke Son in law to Seamus Cody and his son Eoin grandson of Seamus Cody.  An interesting final ahead between father and son.
