The Club is proud having secured the presence of defending Irish Open Champion, Shane Lowry. Plans are that Shane will play a 9-hole demonstration set on the new course and also hold a “Golf Clinic” which will include a 20 minute lesson for two lucky junior golfers. All junior golfers, present on the day, will be entered into a free draw and the winners will be announced on the day.

For all golfers, the program of the day will also include a “Nearest-to-Pin”, and a Putting and Chipping competition”, and also an exhibition of latest golf equipment.

For non-golfers, there will be plenty of entertainment, including music, barbecue and refreshments. A play-zone for kids and lots of different fun-games will make sure that young and old will be kept entertained.
