A local golf club will host the culmination of Golf Ireland’s 2022 interclub season from September 29th to October 2nd.
Male and female club members will converge on Athlone Golf Club to try and win one of the last four All-Ireland titles available to clubs this year. The Revive Active Women’s Fourball, Men’s Fourball and Fred Perry Men’s Trophy will conclude the four-day event at the County Roscommon venue.
The Flogas Irish Mixed Foursomes, which is the only event where men and women compete together, will also crown a champion in Athlone.
Golf Ireland’s Director of Championships, Mark Wehrly, said that Golf Ireland was delighted to stage the conclusion to the All-Ireland Interclub Series in Athlone.
“Athlone Golf Club has been steadfast supporters of amateur golf over the years, having hosted the underage Interprovincial Championships twice inside the last decade, as well as a number of other key events including the Connacht Stroke Play Championship. The club also hosted the prestigious All-Ireland Cups and Shields finals in 1998.
“The course presents an exciting challenge for players and its exceptional finishing stretch will be a great backdrop to the drama of the All-Ireland finals,” explained Mr Wehrly.
Men’s Captain of Athlone Golf Club, Thomas O’Connor, said that it would be a pleasure to welcome all teams, competitors, officials and supporters to the challenging course on the shores of Lough Ree set amongst the Hidden Heartlands.
“We wish all competitors the best of luck in their various competitions. We hope you enjoy your visit to the Hidden Heartlands and return home with good memories of your time spent with us,” he remarked.
Lady Captain Frances McGettigan added that Athlone and the surrounding region was well served with the supply of accommodation, restaurants, bars, retailing and other facilities to meet the demands of this national sporting event.
The numbers attending the golf club for this event will be a major boost to the local economy and we are all looking forward to hosting the event,” she said.
