Jim and Anne Drive-In To Office
On Sunday morning last Mountain View members started their 2013 golfing year when incoming joint Captains Jim Dunne, Anne Foskin and junior captain Sophie O Grady held their Captain’s Drive-In. On a sunny but cool morning both captains and the junior captain had good drives straight down the first fairway after which 72 people took part in a 4 person team scramble. The members enjoyed their game on what ended as a bitterly cold day but conditions were perfect for golf. The presentation of the prizes took place in the clubhouse after refreshments and Captains Jim and Anne expressed their delight with the huge number that took part. Course management and in particular course superintendent Edward Power was thanked for the immaculate condition of the course. The winners were 1. Tony Malone, Christy Donovan, Richard Murphy and Sophie O Grady 58.2. 2 Larry O Neill, John Murphy, Carmel Fennelly and Josie O Gorman 58.4.
