Another great week for The Sandpipers, possibly our best ever. The trip was blessed with superb weather and some excellent golf courses.

One or two members discovered the secret of playing consistently good golf but I don't think Tiger Woods will be following the Shotter Regime - 10 pints of Guinness and in bed by 3 am!!

Knowledgeable navigation by Tom-Tom enabled us to appreciate a great deal of the South West Irish landscape and we did eventually find our way to the four super courses of Courtown, Arklow, Enniscorthy and Coollatin.

Notable performances were produced by IDS to win the singles on a countback from The Judge and by The Pontiff and The Judge to score a creditable 55 nett in the pairs scramble.

The trip was rounded off with a lively presentation dinner supported with copious wine by the Riverside Park Hotel.

All in all, another Sandpipers' spectacular!
