CAUSEWAY COAST GOLF DONATION

by | Jun 4, 2024 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

The Causeway Coast Golf Tournament has been running for over 50 years and is the largest of its type in Europe.
This year, around 400 competitors, from at least 15 countries, will play 4 rounds of golf, at Ballycastle GC, Ballyliffin GC, Castlerock GC and North West GC, nr Buncrana, 4 really excellent…and challenging…links courses.
Each year, the tournament organisers choose a local charity, to receive a donation from the event and we are delighted and honoured to have been chosen this year.
Our Chairman, Colin Barkley, was the guest speaker at the event’s opening night, at the refurbished Golf Links Hotel, opposite Royal Portrush GC, on Sunday, 2nd June and was delighted to receive a cheque for £1,000.
At the suggestion of a Canadian visitor, competitors agreed to add to that sum, with voluntary donations and another £530 was raised…another magnificent gesture from those in attendance and typical of the generosity we see time and time again.
Competitors return year after year, blown away by the quality of the courses and the hospitality they receive…long may that continue!
