Congratulations to Past Captain Dermott Bradshaw, the popular winner of Captain Owen Caugheys Prize 2020.
We had a superb day for great golf and the players didn’t disappoint. The sun shone from the first tee off at 9.00am to when the leading four qualifiers of Dermott Bradshaw, Paul Fox, Ian Mc Dunphy & Vice Captain Jim Fitzgerald drove at 2.00pm. You felt the winner was in that four ball.
The sunshine added to the day and the delicious burgers on the 10th tee helped to sustain body & soul. Despite the Covid-19 restrictions on using the clubhouse the members gathered round the gazebo to share beers, coffees, softdrinks, nibbles … and even some Christmas cake.
With Paul Errity, our Competition Secretary, beavering away on the results in the background in locked-down Kildare, the winner was declared around 6.30pm. Captain Owen presented Dermott with his fabulous Waterford Crystal prize on the putting green.
A formal presentation of all the Captain’s prizes to all the winners will be held at a future date once the restrictions have been lifted.
Honorable mention today went to Barry MacGabhann, a student member, who brought home an amazing 48 pts and to new member Peter Watt for a superb 39 pts on the day.
And well done to Jim McNeils who captured the Captain’s Plate
