Last Saturday saw the annual “drive-in” for the new Captains of 2013 take place and on a day of unseasonal mild
weather, a large turnout of members and friends had an enjoyable days golf. This was followed by a social evening and the day ended up with a very enjoyable dinner in Kendals Restaurant on Saturday night. The new Captains for 2013 are Dermot Divilly who took over from Alan Hoyne and Dorothy Kilroy who took over from Ruth Mulholland. Both new Captains were presented with their blazers at a function held in the Hunter’s yard. As is the custom for the past few years the Captains were driven by pony and cart to the front of the clubhouse where they “drove “ into office by each hitting a drive down the practice ground.
Before all the formalities of the day a very enjoyable two person scramble took place over each nine holes which produced some hot scoring. Best score of the day was produced by the husband and wife pairing of Ger Dowling and Karen Murphy who returned a one over par gross score of 37 shots for an impressive 27 shots nett score which won the first nine hole prize. The winners of the second nine hole prize were Pat Fitzpatrick and Dermot Fennelly who had a level par round of 36 shots which yielded a nett score of 31 shots.
