CAPTAINS DRIVE IN - Despite challenging weather conditions in the run up to the Captain's Drive-In, the competition went ahead with dry weather overhead for the most part. Captain Gabriel Lavin launched the club's golfing year with the traditional drive at the first hole, which he executed well under pressure. It was great to see the clubhouse in use again for the social side of things after the competition, including the presentation of prizes at which our new Captain made a short speech thanking the volunteers of the club and wishing everyone well in their golfing endeavours in 2022.
