The PPU‘s annual golf classic took place once again in Dun Laoghaire Golf Club on Friday August 23rd. There was a ‘shotgun’ start at 14:00 which meant everyone finished together and had a great opportunity to socialise before the dinner. We had 44 golfers enjoying the beautiful sunny weather and another then six past pupils joined us for the dinner.
There was a bit of fun on the night with a raffle, a charity auction and the prize giving. Many thanks to our sponsors for their support which helped us ensure the prizes were good and for the super items that were ultimately auctioned. Also many thanks to the various individuals who contributed the prizes that made the raffle a bit of fun.
The individual winner was Donal Courtney with an excellent score of 39. The team prize was won with a score of 85 points by a Class of ’78 team comprised of Adrian Barnes, Gareth Colgan, Barry Steele and Russell Burke. The PPU president, Dermot Kelly, presented the prizes to all the winners.
