Rugby star goes a fair way for charity
GOLF CLASSIC OPEN DOOR CENTRE BENEFITS AGAIN
HAVING already been rescheduled once, due to abysmal weather and flooding at the Glen of the Downs Golf Club, the Reggie Corrigan golf classic in aid of the Open Door Centre finally went ahead last Thursday, despite a damp start to the day.
There were 23 teams taking part in the event, which is organised annually by Gerry Lister, Secretary of the Open Door Board of Trustees.
They weren’t able to have golf buggies on the course at the start of the day, due to wet conditions, and the final team actu- ally missed their last hole as it was getting too dark to play!
Sustenance was on hand, however, as the chef came out during the day delivering burgers to the weary players - much to their collective delight.
Sponsored by Greenstar, there were plenty of prizes up for grabs on the day, including clubs and other gear as well as four-ball vouchers donated by various clubs in the Wicklow area.
Suzanne Cox of Open Door said that the turnout was slightly down on previous years due to rainfall and the fact that the date was moved, but that organisers are very grateful to those who did take part.
‘Everyone involved had a great day and said that they will take part again next year.’ Reggie himself came second on the day, with a team composed of his dad, his brother, his uncle and Kevin Keyes of Glen Fuels.
Winners on the day were William McCarthy’s team from O’Kane Engineering.
