The Captains Drive-in was well supported on Saturday 10th at Letterkenny Golf Club.
Before tee off Browns on the Green provided Tea & Coffee and the ladies club members laid on a lovely spread of cakes, sandwiches and assorted buns.
Nobody went onto the course hungry. A large crowd gathered on the first tee to watch the Lady Captain Maura Cavanagh, Captain Hugh McClafferty and President Brian Reilly tee off.
It was a three ball scramble and a shotgun start, while the weather may not have been ideal with some showers there was a big turn out and some good scores were posted at the end of the day.
Lady Captain Maura Cavanagh and Captain Hugh McClafferty made the presentations of prizes shortly after.
Eleanor O’Carroll, Tracy Spence and Jalisco Shortt came in first place with a great score of 46.8.
Margaret Harvey, John Doran and Noel Duggan came in second place with a score of 48.38 and in a close third place was Maureen Sweeney, Matthew Dunne and Henry McCahey with 48.66 points.
