CAPTAINS DAY 2020 – Lorcan Egan’s Captains Day was a major success in every respect, from the weather holding out for the day, the biggest field participating in recent memory, and capped by a new name winning his first major, Martin Daly. Martin did extremely well to have the lead after the first 18 and maintain it throughout the 9 hole playoff later in the evening, especially as he had never been in a playoff previously.
The presentation took place the same evening in the clubhouse. The captain congratulated all the winners and paid tribute to the assistance he had received throughout the year and especially in the week leading up to the Captains Prize. He also thanked our generous local sponsors and noted the huge increase in the numbers playing golf during the year.
