The greens at the moment are second to none and they are receptive and true. A real pleasure to play on. With the rough very low at present due to the winter growth the course is playing at its most generous.Captain Denis Martin and Lady Captain Mary Lafferty took their first drives of the season to start off the Captains Scramble. Both drives landed just short of the green. With their other team members, President Keith Lapsley and Lady President Margaret Witherow, they managed to secure 3rd prize in the scramble.The team of Andy Murray, Gillian Lapsley and Frank Crumlish took the 2nd prize.The winning team of Jill McCorkell, Joe Toner, Dominic Bogues and James Thomas Sweeney took top honours with a fantastic score of 54 net. This is more like a score from open week rather than a mid-winter score. In his acceptance speech, Joe Toner complimented 10 year old James for his excellent play and his contribution to the team. James is one of a number of very promising juniors making great progress in the club.All competitors were treated to refreshments before the round and a tasty meal afterwards.This was an exceptional day for golf with the course in really superb condition thanks to the hard work of Paul McGinley and his staff. Thanks must also go to Sarah and her staff for looking after everyone so well in the clubhouse.On New Year’s eve there was a dinner dance in the clubhouse again with Sarah ensuring all was presented perfectly. The band (known as – One For The Road) were excellent and catered for every taste in music as was evident in the full dance floor. A great evening enjoyed by all present.
