President Phil Ryan once again excelled with his prize day at Killerig Golf Club.  Although the weather was poor at the start, the golf was excellent and the whole day was filled with fun, excitement and friendly rivalry.

The evening finished off with the presentation of prizes followed by karaoke where some of the members who may not have shown great skill on the golf course earlier in the day definititely proved that they had a great singing talent when they were put in front of the microphone.  Well done to President Phil Ryan for a great day and congratulations once again to the green keeping staff who had the course in excellent condition.

The results were as follows:
