Wild Atlantic Way Championship   09/10/2017

A very successful weekend at Carne Golf Links has just passed with the 2017 Wild Atlantic Way Club Championship over for another year.

Winners of the Club Championship for 2017 were the team from Achill Island Golf Club consisting of Mark Corrigan,Karen Lyons and Gerry and Julie Hassett with a score of 88 points.

Winners of the Open Section were Seán Gaughan,PJ Carey,Coilín Faherty and Kevin Conroy with 90 points.

A presentation of prizes was held on Sunday evening at The Talbot Hotel and it's fair to say Tommy and Orla pulled out all the stops when it came to attention to detail.

The presentation was followed by a gala dinner upstairs and then the musical entertainment in the bar by the couple of lads from Galway was exceptional.

2018 will see the event again played at Carne after which it will move along to another venue on the Wild Atlantic Way.

It's an event that is certainly going to go from strength to strength.

Next Sunday October 8th sees the Wild Atlantic Way Club Championship played at Carne.

At present there are 12 Clubs taking part in an AmAm format with defending champions Connemara Golf Club attempting to retain their title.

Due to the small number of Clubs being represented there are now a few tee times available on Sunday for any local members who would like to  play in an ' AmAm visitors' section where there are a considerable number of prizes up for grabs.

Entry fee is €60 per team of 4.

For those of you unable to form a team and who would still like to play golf  on Sunday there is a singles stableford  Club Competition. There are available tee times between 1pm and 1:32 pm. Usual entry fee of €7.

The previous day Saturday Oct 7th  sees an 'Open' Am Am , again with teams of four and again with a  team entry fee of €60.

Saturday will have it's own set of prizes.

Please note that the timesheet for the Friends of Carne AmAm on Sat 21st and Sun  22nd Oct is also filling up rapidly and there are just a small number of slots available on a first come first served basis. Entry fee for members for this 36 hole AmAm is €50 per person.There will be no singles competiiton on that weekend.
