The annual Sunshine Classic got underway on Saturday with the first team teeing off at 7.30 a.m. We had a steady flow of teams throughout the day and this continued on Sunday. The Classic continues until Sunday 2nd August. Top prize is a fourball at Dromoland Castle GC including one night’s B&B for the 4 lucky winners. A fourball at Mount Wolseley including 1 night’s B&B and dinner for 4 awaits the runners up. You could also be heading off to your choice of the Flynn Group Hotels for 1 night’s B&B plus Dinner for 4. We are also offering a daily prize for each of the 9 days of our Classic. All this plus a round of golf in a top class course for just €100 per team of four which can be gents, ladies or mixed. As usual we have a nice prize awaiting the Best All Ladies Team. We look forward to welcoming you. Book online or ring 058 43216 to reserve your space now. We ask all members to support this annual fundraising event.
