Triple test awaits 'challenge' entrants

Ballybunion, Doonbeg and Lahinch are teaming up once again this May to host the Great Irish Links Challenge.

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.
