The weather broke on Friday night and the omens looked bad for this years Captains Drive in. However on Sunday at lunchtime similar to the personalities of our captains themselves a sunnier disposition bathed the course in light as Captain Peter Kermath and Lady Captain Sara Loftus took to the tees under more pressure than Rory McEllroy teeing off in the Masters.

The Easter bunny came and went and our members took to the fairways to help walk off all that chocolate in our first qualifying round post Spring League. Winner today Derek Shecklton with 41 points. 2nd Peadar Gill with 40 points. Congratulations.

Make sure that you get your names down for the Captains drive ins on April 12th.
