President’s Prize

The final of President Tom Rigney’s prize was held on Saturday afternoon in glorious sunshine. At the presentation of prizes later that evening President Tom thanked all who played and hoped that the qualifying  nine holes added an extra dimension to the occasion. He commented on the fine scoring and praised in particular the ground staff who had the course in splendid condition. He thanked the committee and especially Francie and Joan for their  work.  He was glad that so many people could play and complimented all who won especially Eddie Nevin on his fine score.  He looked forward  to a ‘long hot Summer’ when the members and particularly our new social members will enjoy some great golf.
