I am delighted to advise that our Captains Day on Thursday 21st April was a great success with an excellent turnout of 46 players and with 46 attending for dinner also, we had a beautiful sunny day and were welcomed and looked after by all at Grange Golf Club and in particular Captain Donal Bollard an old Synger boy himself.
We had a number who played for the first time and also a number who re-visited after many years good to see everybody.
I would like to thank sincerely Tom Scully our Secretary who does all the hard work without any fuss behind the scenes and makes both days a great success.
The standards were very high with the winning score of 38 points from Jim Mc Nelis (on countback) second was Kieran Murphy 38 points and third was Mick Nolan with 37 points. Front 9 was Donal Scully 21 points and back nine was Ronan Kinahan with 19 points the visitors prize was won by John Kilmurray.
We now move on to our Presidents prize on Thursday 15th. September in Castle Golf Club where we will be welcomed by another Synger old boy Paul Williams who is their Captain this year.
The bookings Tom Scully tell me are already coming in, we may have spaces for up to 60, so it is important that you book early.
Thank you again for appointing myself as Captain and it is an honour for me.
Cathal Mc Carthy
