Shot gun success at Golf Outing
The annual CIBSE golf event took place at Castlewarden golf club on Friday, September 1st. This year the primary sponsor was Heat Merchants. The event attracted its highest turnout of teams with a total of twenty-six teams supporting the event. All team’s tee’d off at twelve noon for a shot gun start.
There were lots of prizes won on the day including:
- €1,000 holiday voucher for hole in one/nearest to the pin on the 13th which was won by Brain Harrison of Grundfos.
- Other opportunities to win were on the 6th for Longest drive sponsored by Wilo and
- 17th for Nearest the pin sponsored by Mitsubishi.
- Along with individual prizes the coveted PJ Doyle trophy was up for grabs the best 4 ball score which was won by Winthrop Engineering and Contracting Ltd. The event was scored under ‘Florida Scramble’ allowing for quick play and a fairer team result.
PJ Doyle was a CIBSE member and supporter of Irish branch. He was an engineer with JA Kenny before joining Jones engineering group and succeeding Denis Magee. He died in 1989. The PJ Doyle Memorial Cup was donated to CIBSE in 1990 with John Purcell registering the first win of the cup. In 2011, the scoring changed to a team prize format which continues today.
Teams starting returning to the clubhouse just under the four-hour mark with all reporting a good day but no comment on the score cards. Special mention also to Declan Kissane who managed the registration process officiated at the scoring, and acted as MC on the evening. Following showers and refreshments, over one hundred people sat down in the clubhouse for their meal with prize giving taking place over desert.
Adam Dent of CIBSE presented the winners in place of CIBSE Chairman Paul Martin who unfortunately could not make the prize giving ceremony. Adam was assisted by several representatives from sponsored holes. Full results posted below with photo gallery now online. The CIBSE committee would like to thank all sponsors and participants for their support of another great event
