Well the penultimate round of the La Touche 2017 tour at Druids Glen was also our Captains Day, and again we were lucky with the weather on what is a great course and on many peoples favourite courses to play list.
Signs of the recovering Celtic Tiger also makes it quite expensive to play but it is such a fabulous venue, even in the dark as some of us found out, but I don’t regret the choice and hope everyone enjoyed the day.
The late start and failing light for the latter groups meant that the event became a 16-hole competition rather than the normal 18 holes.
The main prize of the day was of course the Captains trophy to be held by the winner until the 2018 Captains Day and a special Captains prize of a fourball at Killeen Castle, along with the other normal prizes on offer on the day.
1st Place Captains Trophy winner Alan Mc Bride (21) 29 points
2nd Place Brendan Toolan (15) 25 Points (count back)
3rd Place Shay Byrne (20) 25 Points
High Handicap Aidan Egan (20) 22 Points

Thank you all of you who played and supported the day and I hope that you enjoyed the day as much as I and my visitor David did.
