Captain's Drive Results

The testing weather conditions did not spoil a great atmosphere and turnout at Dublin Mountain today.
After some deliberation we settled on playing a 4 Player scramble over the 14 Hole par54 course, this left most groups finishing on the 3 hour mark and hopefully not too wet !
The winning team was:
Damian Byrne/Peter Behan/Neville Morgan/Fred Smith scoring a nett 45.4, Ger Brady/Sean Leech/Mick McKeown & Eddie Raethorne finished in 2nd place on 46.9

Course Status March 5th/6th

Barring any further Weather deterioration, the course will be open for play on Saturday/Sunday 5th, Play Orange tees to White Flags using the normal 14th hole Route.

 After the extreme wet winter, Spring has not yet brought a more favourable weather pattern. The 2nd Hole has got only it's 2nd trim since December ! But it is looking good after the Rest and should be back in play in Mid March.
We will continue on the 14 Hole course (with a mix of Full and temp holes) until the annual "Dry Spell" in early to mid March ( Hopefully) !
