Stackstown Kids Golf Programme 2022

We are delighted to announce our new kids golf programme which will take place throughout the year at Stackstown Golf Club. Under the guidance of our new assistant-professional Richard Bridges, the programme will run over the course of the year and be divided into monthly blocks/camps for convenience, allowing kids to develop both their golf skills and social circles. The monthly blocks will compromise of evening, weekend, mid-term and summer camps depending on the season and daylight. We aim to provide an engaging, fun and safe environment while developing all the tools necessary to enjoy this great game. This programme will be open to members and visitors alike, so if your kids would like to bring along their pals, they are more then welcome.

Paddy O'Beirne Trophy

The Junior boys and girls play in the "Paddy O'Beirne Trophy" run by Elm Park.  There are 5 rounds in 5 different clubs and the final is played in Elm Park in September each year.  The boys overall was won by Edmondstown.

 

The Girls had the best score in Newlands and were awarded with their trophies yesterday following the final.  Elm Park won the overall prize for top scores over the 6 rounds and Stackstown came 2nd overall.  Very proud of the 5 girls who play in the various rounds throughout the summer months.  Photos show all 5 with the Tilestyle Trophy and the girls who played in the final and the 3rd photo the 3 girls who won in Newlands.   Well done girls, it has been a pleasure working with you all.  

 

Special thanks to Michael Kavanagh for all the lessons he has given the girls through these lessons the girls have progressed each year and I hope they will continue to do so and play for our club teams in the years to come.
