MARY K SCOOPS THE PRESIDENTS PRIZE
This year our Presidents Michael and Alice tested the waters with a new format for the final day of the weekend, and what a success it proved to be!! With a shotgun start at 10am all participants started on their respective tees working like clockwork around the course with everybody finished by 1.30 just in time for the delicious BBQ manned by our new chefs all the way from Cork!! The excitement was electric in the car park when the winners of the ladies and mens became known, John White sailed home with a magnificent 41pts playing off a h/cap of 4 and our Mary K floated in with 43pts off a h/cap of 12, well done to both on super scores!!
The BBQ was enjoyed in super sunshine with the wine flowing and background music being played keeping everybody in the groove, the presentation of prizes took place amid rapturous applause and much hilarity!! The day went without a hitch and great credit is due to the organising committee, the sponsors who provided the delicious food and wines and the O’Driscoll family who did a fabulous job in the catering department, not forgetting David who provided the music and PA system for the occasion. Well Done to you all!!!
