On Wednesday (14th June) we held the David Forde Golf Classic, and had 30 teams compete in a Shotgun Start in aid of Galway United. We had many Sports Stars and Celebrities here on the day, including Davey Forde himself, Joe Canning, Michael Swift, Padraic Joyce, Joe Bergin, Barry murphy (Apres match).The event was a huge success, with Owner Ronan Killeen’s team coming in with a winning Champagne Scramble score of 97pts.
The Sun Shone, and everyone remarked on the fantastic shape of the course, as always. The evening got underway at 6pm with pre-dinner drinks in the bar, followed by a 4 course meal in our function room overlooking the Bay. Tommy Martyn of TV3 acted as MC andintroduced Barry Murphy, who proceeded to tear almost everyone in the room apart. There were many laughs and speeches along the way and the day and night were a great success, and we look forward to hosting the same next year!
