    Just accepted on Teamer....Was supposed to be away with work but going to be back on Friday. Hope this doesn't cause problems.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,831 ✭✭✭ benny79


    First Tee is 2pm

    I need everyone to be there for 1.30/ 1.45 as we are going out in regarding golfer of the year standings so unfortunately I wont be going out last!

    Hopefully we can get out a bit earlier.. Time sheet be done this evening.

    So we have 3 guests Seve has 1 & Golfhead65 has 2. They can go in the first group so.

    Regards

    Well Beaufort is in Killarney and makes sense, we are close to hotel when we finish and don't have a 3 day camel ride after the golf..we are in Hotel Killarney, where is everybody else

    Good stuff, haven't played with ye two for a while (any injuries to report Tiger :)). Looking forward to it & setting an early target for the big guns at the business end of the table :D

    Weather better get shifting a bit more, Sunday's downpour has shifted back to Saturday by the look of things on Met Eireann at the moment.

    Benny, do one of those anti-rain dances for us will ya?

    no range in Dooks from what I remember, there is a net 40 yards or so behind the first tee.

  • Registered Users Posts: 702 ✭✭✭ Golfhead65


    Congratulations to AlanM on doing the Captains Prize and GOTY double, Thanks to Captain Benny for a great year and a brilliant Captains weekend and all the boardies for making it a great year..Roll on next year guys and gals

    Just home.
    Knackered!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,834 ✭✭✭ Macker1


    I would like echo what I sure many Society Members think. It was an excellent year with some great courses and a lot of passion shown by our outgoing Captain Benny who tirelessly worked all year to have everything run as smoothly as it did. It was also fantastic to see the new members that joined this year and I just hope they had a great time
    We were unlucky yesterday with the weather and I would just like to state I have never played in such atrocious conditions. I wasn't 100% before the round and I'm absolutely dying since yesterday with aches and pains in every joint. Fair play to everyone that completed their rounds and especially those that scored well enough to place / win. I've spent the last few hours sorting out the mess that was my clubs, bag and gear which is now spread around the house drying out.
    Kudos to AlanM in completing the double which is a great achievement.
    Finally Best of Luck to next years Captain Space who no doubt will bring a new dimension to his term much like his dancing.

    PS...... Now to research a replacement trolley.

    If folk are on the hedge about whether to join this society then rest assured your only regret when you join is not joining sooner.
    Great bunch of welcoming golfaholics and great spirit.
    My only feedback after year one is I suggest new members should be given +3 Golfer of the Year points as an introductory bonus;)

    Was it that close in the end ?

    Yupp. Very tight at the top.

    I’d say when captain Benny recovers he’ll stick up a full report.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,518 ✭✭✭✭ FixdePitchmark


    That was epic rain - Seve, Doublecross and myself, at times felt like crying or laughing. We all did ok under the conditions. Some great golf at times - considering. A bogey was a good score. A par excellent , a bird unreal.

    I have been travelling around Ireland a bit lately and basically went to Kerry not too well prepared for that type of rain. In fairness could you ever deal with rain like that ?

    But I think I've fallen back in love with our little country again - what a stunning place Ireland is - and that part of Ireland is unreal. What a course - not that we seen it properly , but I will have to go back.

    But such is life , long distance traveled, last day. You just had to go. Starting out in torrential downpour and no real let up till 15/16. It is rare I play in rain.

    Fantastic stuff from Alanm to win everything on the day. Trophies / prizes hanging out of him.

    Then we hit the tiles. Benny ending the year in proper Benny style - fun, singing, laughter, and a bit crazy :
    You did a great job Benny and it was the relaxed fun atmosphere that made the year.
    Best of luck Space, a fantastic pick for captain.

    Was great to catch some old friends last night , old stories and new. Chats less about golf and more about life. The ups and downs , the good days the bad - the sunny days the wet.

    Not sure where society or my golf is going next. But there in that stunning low land between mountains and sea - there was just something totally stunning about it. It certainly is as a sight on a golf course I will not forget.

    Thanks all.

    Unreal - your talking maybe one putt over a full year :eek:


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,831 ✭✭✭ benny79


    Alright folks, Im not fully recovered yet! but Just like to say to everyone Society members past & present, committee members and to all the new guys thanks for a brilliant year! Unfortunately I couldn't work my magic on the weather for Dooks. It was like my hang over and a bit delayed in arriving and didnt break to 16 but there was something magical about standing there in the pouring rain looking at the views definitely is a course Id be back too. But listen the after party definitely made up for it! :D Fixes singing got the whole pub going and Spaces dancing had everyone on the floor it was a magical night with life long memories!

    To the Future Captain Space I cant wait for 2020 season to start its going to be a cracker!

    Regards

    Your Captain of 2019
