Gaelic scramble raises big bucks

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

The event attracted a maximum turnout of 80 eager competitors taking on the executive course, in a four player Texas scramble format.

CML Offshore Recruitment, main sponsors on the day, were once again delighted to support the event.

CML acting vice-president Sinead Byrne said: ‘It was great for CML to be involved in such a successful event. The day was great fun for all whilst also raising money for worthwhile causes.’

Funds raised came to $5,000 which will be split between the CIGFC charitable donation programme and the 2009 US Gaelic tournament fund.

The tournament winners were team Bigwood, which was made up of Pete Bigwood, Paul Neary, Marc Randall and Nick Sellars. As well as winner’s glory they also received an excellent selection of prizes including a brunch for four at the Ritz-Carlton and CIGFC 2010 membership for all four players.

PwC were bridesmaids for the third year running finishing a close second with a side consisting of Noel Reilly, Ian Stokoe, Laurence Edwards and David Walker.

The all girl’s team of Joan Killeen, Kim Charaman, Helena McGrath and Linda Colgan picked up the Best Dressed Team prize taking a brunch for four at Luca.

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. John Lawless, one of the founding fathers of the club, came closest on the day with a tee shot that was about ten feet shy of the pin.

The golf was followed by the CML Putt-For-Dough skill test where each person had a chance to hole a putt to win $200, but on this occasion no one mastered the tricky putt.
