President Gemma Butler’s Prize

President Gemma had an excellent turnout for her prize on Sunday sponsored by AIB. A shotgun start at 1pm got the day off to a splendid start. Fortunately the rains and winds held off until later in the evening.

At the presentation dinner Captain Rita Delaney congratulated Gemma on her beautiful prize and thanked her most sincerely for all the work she does on behalf of the Club. She noted in particular her work on behalf of the girl beginners and the Young Girls in Golf. Gemma was Captain in 2000 and plays off a handicap of 5. She is an inspiration to all and our Club is fortunate in having a President who is an inspiration to us all. In reply Gemma thanked all who played and helped to make the day a success. She stressed the work done by the course, bar and restaurant staffs and thanked the various committees for their interest in her day. She was especially grateful to AIB who sponsored her prize.

She congratulated the winners especially Annette Ryan who won her prize. She remarked that Annette is a beginner to golf and she was happy to see the newcomers winning the prizes. An enjoyable evening was had by all.
