The Annual CTT Golf Outing took place at Carrickmines Golf Club on Friday 30 August in glorious sunshine and testy windy conditions.
The course provides wonderful views over Dublin Bay, the Hill of Howth and Bray Head. It is the home course of Don Briggs, Rose Mary Craig and Stephen Franck. These three luminaries were joined on the day by the usual golfing suspects: defending champion, John Lennon, Alan Dixon, Mary Cryan, Karen Rothwell, Liam Kelleher, Colin McCrea, Gerry Morrissey, Pat Maher, David Strahan and John McGuire – so a stellar field and the largest we have had in years!
The Co Wicklow slopes, very fast greens and narrow fairways provided a great test of golf for all. In the end, the Claret Jug was won by John McGuire, narrowly pipping Gerry Morrissey with Mary Cryan taking third position. All retired to the clubhouse afterwards for delicious Chicken Satay and various beverages. All were grateful to Don Briggs, who is the Club’s Honorary Secretary, for making all the arrangements at the Club.
Next year, the outing will be held at Dun Laoghaire Golf Club.
