Grand Slam history in Portarlington Golf Club

Portarlington Golf Club President Kevin Kennedy with President's Prize winner Michael Turley

History was made last weekend in Portarlington Golf Club, with an amazing win in the President’s Prize by Michael Turley, completing a ‘Grand Slam’,  winning the Captain’s Prize and President’s Prize in the same year.

There is no record of this having been achieved before in the history of the 109-year-old club, and it was celebrated in grand style last Sunday.

The photos show Michael with the Club Captain Michael Murphy, after winning the Captain’s Prize on July 16, and with Club President Kevin Kennedy on Sunday, August 13.
