Scramble was great

The Cayman Islands Gaelic Football Club produced another memorable Golf Scramble at their annual event at Britannia Golf Club last week.

The event attracted a maximum turnout of 84 eager competitors taking on the executive course, in a four player Texas scramble format.

Headline sponsors CML Offshore Recruitment were delighted to be able to contribute to the event. CML team member Colin Doylend, head of the company’s marketing and public relations, said: ‘It was great for CML to be involved in what is always a fun and worthwhile event. The day was a good and competitive, social event whilst also raising money for worthwhile causes.’

Funds raised on the day came to CI$6,800 which will be split between both the Cayman Islands Cancer Society and the 2008 Toronto International Gaelic Tournament tour fund where the CIGFC intends to enter both a Men’s and Ladies team.

The tournament winners were Team Foxton, which was made up of Paul Foxton, Rich Marian, Stuart Reed, and Matt Walker. As well as winners kudos they also received an excellent selection of prizes including a Tee Times USA $500 golf package voucher and CIGFC 2009 Membership for all four players.

For the second year running the PwC side of Noel Reilly, Mary Jane Reilly, Henry Whitehead and Tyson Bradley finished second with Team McNay’s Dave McNay, James Rawcliffe, Nick Leighton and Patrick Johnson in third.

GT Automotive had kindly put forward a BMW One Series for a hole-in-one on the 10th hole. However, no player ended up driving the car home. Ger Cohen came closest on the day with a tee shot that was three feet shy of the pin.

The golf was followed by the CML Putt-For-Dough competition where each person had a chance to hole a putt to win $250, but on this occasion no one was skilful or sober enough to claim the prize!
