The 2023 Laois Chamber Alliance Golf Classic took place recently on Wednesday, September 13, in The Heritage Golf Resort Killenard.

The golf was followed by an evening meal and prizegiving in The Heritage Hotel.

This is the fourth year that this annual golf classic has been held, since the re-establishment of the Chamber in 2019.

Unfortunately the rain didn’t stay away on the day, but this didn’t dampen the spirit of those competing.

Ireland’s only Seve Ballesteros designed championship course was in superb condition for the event, attracting teams representing local businesses, as well as a team from as far afield as Canada on the day.

Congratulations to Team Cellnex Ireland, Captained by Colin Cunninghum, who took home the top prize of a night away for 4 people at the Castleknock Hotel with thanks to The Heritage and FBD Hotels & Resorts, together with the Gerry Browne Jewellers Perpetual Cup.

The winning team will also represent Laois at the Chambers Ireland All Island Golf Classic taking place in the K Club in Kildare in October.
