Portlaoise Golf Cub couldn’t have asked for a better morning to tee off the new season on Sunday morning.
Spring was well and truly in the air and despite the cold weather the sun was shining and the members of Portlaoise Golf Club were looking forward to a day of golf.
The Captain’s Drive-in was the highlight of the morning as Captain Tony Conlon and Lady Captain Teresa McEvoy drove into the grounds to an enormous welcome from members of the club.
Families and friends gathered to celebrate the occasion and it was enjoyable morning had by all.
26 teams took part in the competition over the 18 hole golf course followed by a reception and presentations of prizes which were held afterwards in the clubhouse.
The 18-hole golf course, in the heart of Portlaoise, is a real gem – with over 2,000 trees and a number of water features which prove a test for any golfer.
The clubhouse is also well known for its music nights on the first Friday of every month, and all are welcome to come along and join.
Indeed the club pride themselves on a great atmosphere and their warm welcome.
President Paddy Ging is looking forward to welcoming new members and also hoping to have more young members coming to join.
The annual Captain’s Drive-in proved to be a major success and LaoisToday was there to capture the atmosphere.
