Another great club day was had yesterday as we celebrated the start of our golfing year with our Captains’ Drive-in.
Unfortunately our Girls Captain Isabella Stewart is abroad so it fell to Boys Captain, Jamie Anderson to hit off first. As you might expect he nailed it, and piled the pressure on Lady Captain, Celine who was up next – no bother to her – another fairway hit. Captain John was not to be outdone however and split the fairway himself. Drama over the there captains were then able to relax and enjoy the rest of the day.
Big thanks as alway to our major events sponsors, Gino’s Gelato and Newcastle Design for their great support and to Glendalough Distillery who today provided some very tasty nearest the pin prizes ! Thanks also to Davie, Ben and the pro-shop team who ran the golf side of the day perfectly as always and to Ali and his team for providing a delicious dinner. Liz-Anne Woollam, together with her events committee, worked closely with Paul and Olivia to create a St. Patrick’s Day to remember. Paul and Olivia’s teams made an extremely busy day run like clockwork, not forgetting Liam & Jenny in the office and the ever helpful Nick.
