The weekend away to Dundrum House in Tipperary had it all! Golf played in glorious sunshine, good food, entertainment, and great craic!
Some members played Friday to check out the course ..... and decided that definitely a woman would win as there was a “great advantage” from the ladies tee box. So the book was opened! Caps Field was playing great lately – very focussed, Ann Daly is always the one to beat... Mary Deegan is very steady and Ita McCarron is improving with every outing ... Yes, there was keen interest on Saturday’s competition!
I went out there feeling optimistic, with the “great advantage” thing in my head. It was on the second hole that I realised, although a lovely place, it was just like a forest with huge bunkers and skinny fairways. I negotiated my way around the trees, streams and bunkers, and wondered about the origin of it being a course for the ladies.... It was tough. The best of our golfers were challenged and enjoyed it immensely!
As for the betting; Ita McCarron rose to the challenge and came second to Paul Murphy. Well done Ita and Paul!
