Lady Captain’s Day at Cobh Golf Club
Congratulations to our Lady Captain Marian Britton, who held her Captain’s Prize for the Ladies on Saturday, 16 July 2022. A lot of work went into the day and Marian was rewarded with brilliant participation and plenty of sunshine.
What a great competition day it was! The Gents looked after the Ladies to send them off (thanks, Podge and Pat and Seamie!), the sun shone and a light breeze gave some needed cooling in a heated competition.
Count-backs were needed to separate the players in the end, and many Congratulations go to the overall winner, Heather Casey, who ‘burnt up’ the course after a slow start – brilliant! Eileen van Leeuwen was ‘pipped’ in a countback – she came 2nd on 39 points. The final result:
- Heather Casey (19) 39 pts
- Eileen van Leeuwen (45) 39 pts c/b
- Rose Higgins (25) 37 pts
- Liz Ryan (41) 37 pts c/b
- Mary O’Grady (49) 37 pts
- Best Gross: Ann Lenihan (20) 18 pts
- Past Captain: Teresa Delius (24) 35 pts.
But really, everyone was the winner on this day – a great game of golf, beautiful sunshine, and smiles all around were to be had at daytime. This was followed by a fantastic dinner (thanks, Marcin and Justina and the whole Food Club Crew – you outdid yourselves!), and a dance with great live music by Niamh O’Connor until exhaustion – a day to remember for a long, long time…
Here are a few early snapshots of all the teams going out to compete (well, the Cobh Animation Team are truly beyond competition).
