Last year, in the inaugural staging of this event, more than 250 golfers played in the competition, which, despite some equally challenging weather, was a huge success. This year the organisers are hoping to attract double last year's numbers for the event, which will take place on May 7-10.

This is a four-person team event, with entry costing €595. The fee includes the welcome reception, golf at the three courses, daily transport to the three courses, prizes and the final dinner. It does not include flights or accommod- ation. Full details can be found at or by phone at +353 65 9055602.

Ladies Inter-Club secure new sponsor

GOOD to see that the ILGU has a new sponsor for their Ladies Inter- club championship. The long-established Private Home Care will back the championships for the next three years.

The overall competition consists of six separate tournaments -- four singles match-play events and two foursomes competitions and are now in their seventh year.
