Council Golf Day In New York

Council Golf Day In New York
A Painting by Vermeer? No – a shot from the Whitby Castle dining room down the 18th fairway on a sunny September morning – compliments of our artistic photographer, James Higgins.

From morning till night on Monday July 23, the elements conspired against the Council's now-annual golf day in New York. A Summer storm nailed the New York area causing the re-scheduling of the event to a rain-date on September 24 at Rye Golf Club. So, the morning of Monday, September 24 dawned as the sun rose in the East and happily shone from a cloudless sky from dawn till dusk.

Second time lucky and the occasion was marked by a day of strong support from members and friends of the Council and lots of prizes for the participants.

A committee of Council members and directors, headed by Niall Millar, President of AtlanticGolf in Stamford, CT, helped generate strong support for this successful event. Our thanks also to Joe Byrne and Tourism Ireland, who provided sponsorship support of the event.
