Castle Schools Cup 2017

Congratulations to Carrie, Louise, Aisling and Sophie who were runners up at the annual Castle Schools Cup golf outing last Monday 29th May.

Well done girls!

On Monday 29th of May, the team met at the Castle Golf Club, Rathfarnham, at 7.30am. When we arrived we were given goody bags with golf balls, tees and markers. After registering we met our walker Eimear and it wasn’t long before we headed off to our starting tee box on the 2nd hole. It was a shotgun start and after the first hole we settled down and played well for the nine holes of the tournament.

When the golf was finished we all watched an exhibition from the golf professional and after that we all changed into our uniforms before going up to a lovely dinner of chicken and chips followed by whippy ice-cream on a cone which was drippy but it tasted good.

Finally when everyone was finished dinner, the speeches and the prize-giving started. We were thrilled to be runners-up and we got photographs with the host Hilary Haydon and the two captains. Altogether it was a fantastic day and I am really sorry that I can’t play again next year.
