Vice-Captain’s Prize (Mr. David Hoyne) – Billy Hewitt Takes the Win!

After a number of runner up finishes in the Vice-Captain’s down through the years, Billy Hewitt finally took home the win on Saturday after some fantastic play in what can only be described as very tough conditions. We had four seasons of weather in one day! Heading the field after the first 18 with a nett 67 (4 over par), Billy continued the fine play in the 9-hole playoff finishing with a total of 101.5 which was enough to secure the win by 2 shots over Michael Healy. 3rd place went to Donald Binchy.

The prize giving was held afterwards and a great night was had by all there. Congratulations to everyone who played and well done to our Vice-Captain David Hoyne for a successful day.
