Captains’ Drive In

Lady Captain Teresa Fitzpatrick and Captain Joe Smith’s official drive in took place on Saturday 18th last. President Ann McCarthy was on the 1st Tee to welcome them both to the Tee where a large number of club members, family and friends were waiting to greet them. On a beautiful evening what could go wrong? Lady Captain Teresa was 1st to drive in, she was handed her trusty driver by her grandson and proceeded to hit a perfect drive, to enthusiastic applause. Captain Joe then stepped forward and he too made a pretty good job of his official drive sadly he lost his tee!! All can be seen on Facebook Clones Golf Club’ page!

Paul Fitzpatrick then popped the champagne cork before all returned to the clubhouse where the Ladies provided a very welcome array of sandwiches and finger food and The Creighton Hotel, Clones provided the hot nibbles, thank you Packie McCarville. Lady Captain Teresa and Captain Joe individually thanked their families and friends who came from near and far to be with them on their 1st official duty of their tenure. They also thanked all those who took part in the respective competitions to honour them and the ladies presentation took place for the 9 hole stableford. 1st Brid Finlay 25 points, 2nd a very chuffed Loreto Traynor with 24 points and 3rd Elaine Hamilton 23 points.  The evening ended with a raffle thanks to Gerry Brady who has secured sponsorship from PanEuro Foods for a Raffle run from Saturday 28th January up to the Captains` Drive in. The prize of €200 Frozen Food Hamper was won by son of Mike Keane! A music session provided by Pat McCabe, Peter McGeough, Pat Fee, P J McCague and Joe Smith the rounded off the evening very well.
