Captain Marian described the course as a hidden gem and she was spot on! The event commenced at 12:30pm and saw 35 golfers take to the course. There were a multitude of winners on the day and some of the noteable awards included:
Guest Prize – Hamish Stewart 40pts

Amadeus was the sponsor on the day and everyone enjoyed goody bags and a drink in the bar following play. A delicious dinner followed in the restaurant with prize giving afterwards.
The next installment of TIGS will take place on the 21st July at Castleknock Golf Club and is a fun BBQ outing.
