Captains Prize 2012

The weather was kinder to the members and despite an unpredictable wind and some tricky pin positions, Shane managed a nett 73 off a handicap of 8. Well done to him to runner up Michael Lanney. The gross was won by Frank Leonard. The golf was followed by a very enjoyable social evening with entertainment and dinner.
