The Captains’ Drive-In took place on Saturday 7th March. The day began with an Ecumenical Service for bereaved members, after which both Captains, Manus and Moragh, showing no sign of nerves, went to the first tee and officially launched the 2015 Golfing Season.
The Greensomes competition which followed was played over the front and back nine, with a separate singles competition for the men who had no female partner for the day. Though the day was “fairly windy” there were very good scores returned for each of the nine holes. Winners;
Men’s Singles; Nigel Trimble
Back Nine; Winners, Aidan O’Doherty & Gaye McGoldrick, Runners Up, Glenn Patterson & Anna Colhoun.
Front Nine; Winners, Frank Shovelin & Carmel Brennan. Runners Up, Paul Murphy & Patsy Harkin.
