Goal golf classic
The organisers of the annual Mayo GOAL Golf Classic, which takes place in Claremorris Golf Club on Thursday April 28, are aiming to make this year’s event the biggest ever. “Last year’s classic in Castlebar Golf Club was a huge success,” says chairman Chris Farrell, “and considering it is the poorest and most vulnerable people around the world who are hardest hit during an economic downturn we’re hoping that Mayo’s golfers will do their bit to support them again. We’re hoping that this year’s Mayo GOAL Golf Classic will be the biggest one so far.” Team entries for the Golf Classic cost €180 or €45 per person, while tees and greens can also be sponsored for €80. To book a tee time contact Claremorris Golf Club on 094 9371527 or Ronan Scully GOAL on 087 6189094.
