Captains’ Drive - In and Scramble
2016 St Patrick’s Day Scramble
Gary Leckey (11), Wyn Donnell (12) and David Flanagan (21)
Cormac McKeone (4) , Stephen Doherty (12) and Martin Doherty (16)
Fifteen teams contested the by now traditional St Patrick’s Day Scramble after Mr Captain 2016, Clive Brolly and Lady Captain, Frances Mclaughlin launched the City of Derry Golf Club season in fine sunshine. Scoring was hot across the range of teams but in the end the nine birdies by Gary Leckey(11), Wyn Donnell(12) and David Flanigan(21) gave them a winning score of 55.1. In second place came Cormac McKeone(4), Stephen Doherty(12) and Martin Doherty(16) on 55.7 but this team will regret the missed chances that left them just short of a winning score despite eight birdies and a fine eagle three at the Par 5 “Dermot’s”.
A great afternoon was had by all and, in his opening prize-giving remarks of 2016, Mr Captain Clive congratulated the winners on their victory, thanked those in attendance for their support, praised the hard-working greens’ staff for their endeavour in preparing the course to such a high standard despite the wettest winter for many years and looked forward to a successful 2016 season for members and the many 2016 visitors.
