DUGS Captain’s (Aidan Walsh) Prize
Portmarnock Golf Club
30th June 2022
A lovely day greeted the members at this famous links course and although the weather and wind were favourable, the greens true and fairways fast, the rough was lush and tough did pose a problem for many. The course played was Yellow/Red.
There was some great scoring with Paul O’Gorman coming out on top with a marvellous 40 points winning the Pringle Trophy and a lovely decanter and wine glass set all engraved with the DUGS crest. Best Gross went to DUGC 2020 Captain Cian McCormack with Andrew Bryce 2nd beating Clive Lauder on the back 9. Our President Philip Myerscough was 4th.
It was very nice to welcome those who had travelled from afar to be here, George Lewis from Toronto, Martin Moroney from Lahinch as well as our sole lady Karen Jackson from Milltown.
Congratulations to Aidan for putting this marvellous day together which was rounded off by a great meal supplied by Ali and his staff to the 28 who played. Covid and Covid related issues did take their toll as we had an unfortunate 25% fall out rate during the week, but it did not diminish the enjoyment for the rest of the field.
Many thanks for the enthusiasm of the Portmarnock Golf Club and staff for facilitating us yet again which all made the day such a memorable occasion.
