Ladies... You're On The Tee

After last week’s plug in the Irish Golfer Digital+ magazine for the Dooks Father & Son tournament (and similar events) on 21st April, it seems only fair to give the ladies a share of the limelight.

With women’s golf growing more popular it makes sense that more events and opportunities should be dedicated to lady golfers. Ladies can play in plenty of Open events and the
Atlantic Coast Challenge has certainly attracted a good crowd… but what about something a bit more focused?

1. Wild Atlantic Way Open (Carne Golf Club)

The outrageously brilliant Carne is hosting the Wild Atlantic Way Open Ladies Four Ball Championship. This inaugural event will be played on Saturday 10th June. Competitors can play a free practice round on Friday or a free follow up round on Sunday. Given that Belmullet is a little farther away than most clubs and that this is a beautiful part of the world it makes sense to take advantage. Besides, your Carne experience will really benefit from a second round.

The event is open to lady golfers with ILGU handicaps. There is an early bird entry rate of €60 up until the 31st March. Thereafter it is €70. Accommodation packages (including golf entry fee) are also available at the Broadhaven Bay Hotel, with 2 nights’ B&B costing €170pps, and 3 nights costing €210pps.

2. Ladies Golf Retreat at Lough Erne

This is the 6th year of the ‘retreat’ and it is becoming a regular fixture for lady golfers who want to combine golf coaching and tournament golf on the Faldo course with the five star luxury that Lough Erne offers. The package also includes a gala dinner, lunch on arrival and a prize presentation.

Lynn McCool PGA – and Director of Golf – alongside a guest professional will run the event over four different weekends, for golfers of all abilities. This is about improving your game, fun and camaraderie.

18th & 19th April
14th & 15th May
23rd & 24th July
22nd & 23rd August

2017 also sees the first Couples Mixed Retreat, on 10th and 11th September.
Stg £220 per person sharing.
