Rathdowney-Errill GAA are holding their Annual Golf Classic, in the always resplendent Rathdowney Golf Club on Friday, June 9 and Saturday, June 10.
The event is open to teams of 4 (any combination of ladies and men) at an entry fee of €120.
Juvenile and U-20 teams are also welcome at a cost of €60.
It will be the seventh annual running of the classic, which has become firm favourite in the sporting calendar.
Last year’s classic welcomed over 180 golfers, including former and current players, and many golfing enthusiasts who came out to help support the club.
The Camross-Ballacolla quartet of Fint Scully, Richie Moloney, Gerry Kavanagh and Tom Moore showed that they were just as adept with the golf clubs as they were were with a hurl, coming out on top last year with a marvellous return of 93 points.
They just edged out Sean Bolger, Billy Harte, Paud O’Reilly and Malachy Fogarty, after a countback.
Mark Aylward took home the longest drive, while the former Waterford and Limerick legend, Martin Geary, created a piece of golfing history when he scored a hole in one on the 17th – the first in the history of the classic.
The course is always kept in great condition by Lorcan Dunne and the greenkeeping staff, which certainly adds to the occasion.
Regardless of one’s golfing ability, the annual classic offers a great day out for all who take part.
