Men’s Captain, John Tobin and Lady Captain, Angela Reilly “drove-off” into office on Sunday morning last, watched by a very large number of members and guests. The celebrations began with the ceremonial planting of a tree to mark the occasion on the ninth hole. The Captains received a pleasant surprise when they were paraded to the first tee by a traditional Irish bagpiper and number of John’s colleagues in the Irish Ex-Servicemen Organisation from Trim.

Following a champagne reception and the usual presentations on the first tee, both Captains drove off with great encouragement from the large attendance. Members enjoyed a 9 hole four-person team scramble competition followed by a buffet lunch. Both Captains’ addressed their guests and wished all members in attendance a great golfing year ahead. The winners of the 9 hole scramble competition were announced and received vouchers.

Congratulations and very well done to our Vice Captains’ Damien and Marie who along with members of the Men’s Committee 2018, prepared and organised a great Captains’ Drive-In.
