Golf classic proceeds to light up Ballincollig for Christmas
The Ballincollig Business Association’s annual golf classic will help raise funds for new Christmas lights.
Proceeds from the event, at the Lee Valley Golf and Country Club on Thursday, September 14, will be used to set up a specific Town Development Fund, which will help support a new festive light system. Teams of three will tee off from 8.30am and the competition will run throughout the day. The cost of entry for a team is €190 which includes dinner and a special event goodie bag.
Emer Cassidy, chairperson of the BBA, said: “We’re really looking forward to this year’s golf classic which is shaping up to be the biggest and best one we’ve had. The organising committee has worked hard to put together a fantastic day’s programme that includes a great day’s golf as well as a few surprises in there as well.
“There will be golf clinics and playing tips from the Cork Golf Centre coaching team in Ballincollig, Par 3 Beat the Pro with Ian Stafford Golf Coaching, plenty of prizes on the day and we’re also expecting some well-known faces to turn up and play a round.
“All of the money raised from the golf classic is going to be used to establish a fund that will be used for different projects to better the town. The first of these is investing in new Christmas lights, and with the help of Cork County Council, we will hopefully have Ballincollig looking even more festive this year.”
There are still places left for teams to enter and anyone interested should contact the BBA at email@example.com or 086 055 1911.
