Golf Classic 2022
In association with Lexus Cork

Our Golf Classic in association with  Lexus Cork took place yesterday with over 170 players taking part. There was a fantastic atmosphere in Cork Golf Club all day and thanks to the support of Chamber members everyone headed off with a packed goodie bag again this year.

Congratulations to the winning team from Hopkins Communications with an impressive score of 101. Each player on the team went home with one night’s B&B, afternoon tea, spa treatments and a round of golf for two at Fota Island Resort.

Well done to everyone who entered and supported the Hole-in-One Charity Challenge in association with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. While no lucky golfer walked away with the Trip for Two to Amsterdam, we did raise €1,600 which will be shared between Spinal Injuries Ireland and the Irish Blood Transfusion Service who were drawn on the day.
