2017 Cork City FC Golf Classic

The annual Cork City FC Golf Classic took place last Tuesday 5th September in Lee Valley Golf and Country Club.

With nearly 40 teams entered it was a fantastic day all around. Thankful the weather stayed kind to us and allowed for some very low scores to be recorded.

We had players past and present in attendance with a few of these getting in among the prizes.

I think the highlight for many golfers on the day was the Clonakilty Black Pudding breakfast rolls on the 9th green which helped kill off the hunger for the back 9 holes.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all who participated, sponsored and helped out on the day to help make this day the success that it was.

We would also like to thank Lee Valley Golf & Country Club for hosting the event and we are looking forward to next year’s event already.

First Place winners Anthony Buckley, Evan O’Mahony & Paul O’Rourke.
