Another captains prize has come and gone but yet another day to live long in the memory. The usual clubhouse hospitality and craic was on offer ably led by Linda Gill and her merry crew, and there was some sparkling golf on the course. After 36 holes there was only one winner and deservedly so after some breathtaking driving and all round great golf, Stephen Smith won by 4 shots, sealing the deal with a burst of 3s on the last 5 holes, in other words 3 under par!! well done to Captain Peadar on 2 great days and a successful year to date.
Captain Peadar Gill's prize is underway and the 2nd day promises to be exciting. At end of day 1 there were 2 men who stood apart from the field after brilliant 59s, Stephen Smith and Rory O'Connell. But as with the Presidents prize, there are lots of lads waiting to spring from the bunch should the leading pair make any mistakes Sergio style. Good luck to all next week. Presentation of the Captain's prize will take place in Lakeside Manor at 9pm on Sunday.
The annual club outing is planned for Sept 13th but with a difference this year. The golf will be played in Virginia followed by gourmet BBQ in Park Lodge afterwards, keep the date free, keep eye on noticeboard for details.
