Charlie McGoldrick Cup 2014 at Enniscrone

The Charlie McGoldrick Cup took place recently at Enniscrone Golf Club on Friday 29th & 30th August. It was an excellent event with over 150 players taking part, which was made all the more enjoyable by the beautiful weather that was present on both days.

Golfers from every corner of Ireland and beyond travelled to Enniscrone to remember one of the clubs best ambassadors. Charlie would have loved the fact that there was a slight breeze on both days as he would say “The breeze will sort the good from the average” as he would have said! And so it did, scoring was very good on both days with a number of 40pts being returned. The honour of winning the 2014 Charlie McGoldrick Cup fell to Deputy Head Greenkeeper, Ciaran Sweeney,  to take cup, beating Robert Jacob on the back 6 . Now I know who was possible responsible for those pin positions!!

It was a truly tremendous two days in the West of Ireland at Enniscrone for the 2014 Charlie McGoldrick Cup and I’m already looking forward to playing in the 2015 tournament! In the meantime I’d highly recommend you getting out West to play Enniscrone GC, check out their website; like their Facebook page and give them a follow on Twitter too!

3rd Charlie McGoldrick Cup takes place at Enniscrone

The 3rd Charlie McGoldrick Cup will take place at Enniscrone Golf Club on Friday 29th & Saturday 30th August 2014. Charlie was the PGA Professional at Enniscrone Golf Club for 21 years, until his early retirement due to ill health in March 2011. He sadly passed away in August of 2011.Enniscrone GC
This is the third year of The Charlie McGoldrick Cup and it has proved a very successful event, with people playing in it from all over Ireland and beyond. The format is unique in that it can be won by a Lady, Gent or Junior Golfer and they can be either a member or visitor, with the best score over the two days of the competition to count. So that means if a competitor plays on Friday then this is the score that will be accepted to win the Cup, if a competitor plays both days then the Friday score will be accepted for the Cup but the Saturday score will be eligible for the Saturday competition as there will be prizes available for both. I, for one and I’m sure I won’t be in the minority here, will try to play both days!
