For a change we were blessed with dry crisp weather last Sun­day morn­ing, as the frost grad­u­ally cleared and the sun made an ap­pear­ance, mulled wine warmed up some of the large turnout of mem­bers who came to hon­our our Cap­tains Robert Mc Hugh and Olivia Cooney. Dressed in 1930s vin­tage out­fits they made their en­trance in a rather un­usual Horse driven Car­riage and to much amuse­ment, ap­plause and cam­era flash­ing, the cham­pagne bot­tles corked as the 2010 Cap­tains were of­fi­cially wel­comed into of­fice. Then af­ter much furore they calmly hit their drives up the first fair­way as they were joined by the Pres­i­dent Jim Byrne and Lady Pres­i­dent June Smith, fol­lowed by 86 Men and Ladies who scram­bled to ev­ery other tee box for the shot­gun start.

At the prize giv­ing the Hon Sec­re­tary Jim Mur­ray in­tro­duced both cap­tains and wished them ev­ery suc­cess dur­ing 2010. Both Cap­tains then spoke and said it was a great hon­our to be Cap­tains of such a great club, thanked the cater­ers, all the vol­un­teers who helped in ev­ery way pos­si­ble to en­sure a great day was had by all, and promised to do their ut­most to make the year a suc­cess­ful one for Balt­in­glass golf club.
