Elm Eagles Support Day

Elm Eagles Special Olympics Golf Club would like to thank all members of Elmgreen Golf Club, firstly for allowing us to have Special Support Day on Sunday 19th May and secondly for all of the generous donations and support you gave us on the day!!

It is safe to say that the donations have far exceeded our expectations and we will report back to you on the equipment, clothing, materials, etc that we purchase over the coming months.

We are very proud to be based at Elmgreen Golf Club!

All members who made a donation to Elm Eagles on the day went into a draw to win a fabulous golf bag, donated by Carr Golf. The winner was Brian Gaffney.

We ran the “Beat the Elm Eagle” Putting and Chipping competitions during the day and 60 of your members took part in each. Just for the record, our Elm Eagles won approx one third these head-to-head contests.

The victorious Elmgreen members went into draws to win the very nice golf gear prizes that Carr Golf had provided. The winners were:

Men’s Putting – John Burke

Ladies Putting – Mary McGuirke

Men’s Chipping – Pascal Rogers

Ladies Chipping – Patricia Caulfield

We also had a Nearest the Pin on the 11th hole, with the hot shot winning a prize for all of their four players, which was donated by the Carroll Family. The winning team were:

Joe Turner (hot shot), Thomas Richardson, Paul Doogan & Gary Curran

Finally there was the Longest Drive competition on the 18th hole, with a prize sponsored by Jerome Howe. The winner was Michael Joyce.

Again, very many thanks to everyone in the Pro Shop, the Men’s Club and the Ladies Club for helping us make this day work so well.
