KRFC Golf Classic – On your bike for Hole in one
Following the success of last year’s Golf Classic and this novel prize, Killarney Rugby Club has yet again something to focus the minds of those playing golf in this year’s Killarney Rugby Club Golf Classic at Mahony’s Point course. Our novel Hole-in-One competition on the iconic, picturesque 18th hole is back and will certainly challenge even the best. Open to both ladies and gents as part of the Classic, the first player who strikes a hole-in-one will win a top of the range bicycle and gear from O’Sullivan’s Cycle worth up to €5,000!
What a way to finish a wonderful day of good fun and friendly rivalry. You could be cycling the Ring a few days later on this state of the art bike! The Rugby Club has had a fantastic response from the business community once again and with over 40 teams of four taking part it promises to be a great day out. Great sponsors have supported the event from the off and with a mighty BBQ lunch midway through the golf, and so the back nine will be a formidable test!
The club wishes to thank the many sponsors and supporters in establishing this event. It is an annual event on the local calendar and the club has great support from all sporting codes in the locality again and this just shows you how stone mad for sport and ‘craic’ we are in Killarney and Kerry.
The Hole-in-One will cap a series of great prizes including ‘Nearest the Pin’; ‘Longest Drive’ and a monster Raffle throughout the day for a bundle of great surprises. The club also thanks Killarney Golf & Fishing Club for their generous accommodation in ‘Heaven’s Reflex’ and to Paul Cotter and his catering team at “The Chapel”.
So fun for all those involved and who knows we may have a brand new cyclist in this year’s Ring of Kerry!
