Captains Day 2015
Mr Kevin Conlon’s Captains Day took place on Sunday the 2nd of August. It was a wonderful day and congratulations go out to Kevin and Carmel on their staging of a superb event.  The weather conditions on the day, while not perfect, were a huge improvement on the forecast so that allowed for a highly competitive and enjoyable day.  Given the difficult conditions the scoring was excellent with the winner Michael Flynn putting in a wonderful performance to win by four shots despite being tied for the lead going into the final nine.  This win was richly deserved as Michael has been close in this event before and has shown excellent form in the last few years.  The results are as follows;
1. MICHAEL FLYNN   70 (34) 104
2. JIM MC LOUGHLIN   73 (35) 108

The first Major of the year took place on Sunday 14 June when Joan O’Dowd hosted her truly memorable Lady Captain’s Day at Castle Dargan Golf Resort. It was a perfect day to play in a Major.  A huge turnout of members, family and friends kept the perfectly manicured golf course busy from very early morning and the fine weather gave every opportunity for good golf. The reward for all golfers was celebratory refreshments as they stepped off the 18th hole.  The Lady Captain’s Dinner followed that evening in Castle Dargan Hotel and it was a magnificent occasion with the many members and friends being joined by the O’Dowd and Scott families. Dinner was delicious and the overall service is a credit to the staff at Castle Dargan Hotel. Scores were impressive and tight with 3 of the 4 prize-winners having the same points. Lady Captain’s Prize was won by Ann Mullen, 2nd Peggy Feely, 3rd Mary Walsh and 4th Maeve Kelly. First in the men’s section was Aidan Mc Goldrick, 2nd Ray O’Grady, and 3rd Adrian Mc Goldrick.

New Driving Range Opens

It was an historic day at the Castle Dargan Golf Resort on Friday last as the brand new driving range was officially opened. A large gathering of members, locals and visitors from other golf clubs were present to see the ribbon cut on this fantastic addition to the range of facilities at Castle Dargan. Resort manager Ciaran Gardiner welcomed the crowd, and invited owner and Club President Mr Dermot Fallon to cut the ribbon and declare the 4 bay driving range officially open. Club Captains Kevin Conlon and Joan O Dowd smashed the first 2 drives down the range, and the gathering were then treated to wine and finger food as some of the local Castle Dargan juniors showed off their skills. The driving range is now open every day to both members and visitors alike, so feel free to drop by and try out this fantastic addition to the facilities at Castle Dargan.
