Portrane announce Golf Classic details

The annual Portrane hockey club, fundraising golf classic will take place on Friday, May 7 in Donabate Golf Club with participants competing for the inaugural Tommy O’Sullivan Perpetual Trophy.

The event will honour the goalkeeper who was a well-known figure on the Leinster hockey scene and passed away before his time in 2007.

All funds raised from the event will go toward the club’s continued development and expansion of the club’s schoolboy and schoolgirl hockey programme. Currently, the club has iver 100 juvenile members from Under-8s up to Under-16s.

In recent years, the club have been working hard to introduce hockey into local primary schools and are now well established with a weekly hockey programme in three schools on the Portrane-Donabate peninsula and also this year has been introduced into three schools in Swords.

In June this year, construction of the new international standard water base pitch will commence with the official opening of this world class facility on schedule for September 2011, providing an enormous boost for Portrane Hockey Club as well as all sporting clubs within the peninsula and wider Fingal area.

The golf classic itself has a tee-off times between 9am and 4.50pm sharp. This is a four person team event with four ball teams teeing off at ten minute intervals on one of Dublin’s most enjoyable coastal parkland courses.

The day will consist of a round of golf on one of Dublin’s premier golf clubs including surprise goodie bags, barbeque on the 10th hole and complimentary drinks during the round of golf.

The evening will conclude in the clubhouse with a three course dinner where the presentation of excellent prizes and club draw will take place. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams, nearest the pin and longest drive.
