Spring in the Air at Golf Club Drive-In

There was a sense of Spring in the Air this morning at the now launched Castleisland Members’ Golf Club. Historic captains, Domhnall de Barra, Catherine Horan and junior club captain, David O’Donoghue conducted their drive-in with an air of new beginnings, fresh growth and yes, a spring in their step.

It has been a long, tough year at Tulligubeen and nobody at the club-house on Sunday morning was in any doubt about what a close shave it was.

Last April there was talk of the grass growing in the windows of the clubhouse and the immaculately kept greens going back to the wilderness of pre-2001 and of the body-blow of losing something that was so hard fought for and won at the time.

Club PRO Seán Turner will send the results of the day later. In the meantime take at look at a selection of photographs from this morning’s drive-in and an arbitrary collection of pictures of highlights from the past decade.
