Captain’s (Niall O’Connor) Prize

The Hermitage Golf club

Thursday 30th September 2021

After many failed attempts to play this fixture due to Covid restrictions  Niall O’Connor’s Captain’s Prize finally took place on a lovely day in Hermitage, despite a poor forecast.

We had a large field of 35 players and it was fantastic that this included 3 lady members. It’s great to see this part of the society being revived.

The course was in excellent condition and all praised the condition and speed of the greens resulting in many tales of 4 putting….

Kenny Johnston had the best score of 38 points to win the Pringle Trophy for the 5th time a feat not likely to be repeated. The gross was won by Sean O’Flaherty with 35 points, 2nd Hugh Rainey 34 points, 3rd Don Beck 32 points and 4th Aedan Jameson 32 points. The Ladies’ Prize was won by the Captain’s wife Gina O’Connor with an excellent 33 points.

Our thanks to Hermitage for an excellent meal and presenting the course in such excellent condition.
