THE sun shone brightly on Jarlath Faloon’s Captain’s Day and the members thoroughly enjoyed themselves, thanks to the generous hospitality of the Captain.
The competition was played over three days, with the grand total of 366 members playing for a vast array of prizes.
The Clubhouse was filled with the buzz of golfers talking of putts that dropped and drives that went straight and long.
Davin Quinn came in with the winning score of 47 points – a remarkable achievement on a course with lightning-fast greens - three points clear of runner-up Peter Loughran, and Charlie Toner finished in third place.
Conor McCaughey had the lowest gross score of the competition, going round in 70 shots.

The Lady Captain, Deirdre O’Rourke, came third in the Ladies’ Competition with 39 points, Magdalen Maneely claimed the runner-up spot with 40 points, and Lorraine Wilson was the winner with a fabulous 42 points.
