Elm Eagles Golf Club

Elm Eagles is a Special Olympics Golf Club. Our athletes are people with learning difficulties / intellectual disability (ID). We have 12 athletes; 7 are golfers and the other 5 play pitch & putt. Our club runs a weekly event, at Elmgreen, so that our members have a regular practice, interaction and enjoyment.

Elmgreen GC kindly provide your facilities to our Special Olympics Golf Club from September to June on Saturday afternoons. We have chipping/putting practise from around 12.45pm, then our athletes go to their first tee around 1.45/2.00pm, either to golf or to pitch & putt.

We are a successful club, winning the inter-club Special Olympics Trophy for the third year running (proudly on display in your club dining room), plus three of our athletes achieved medals in the Ireland Games in June 2018, one of whom went on to win a gold medal in the World Games in Abu Dhabi in March 2019.

Funding is crucial for Elm Eagles to support our on-going sports education programme, our inter-club competition expenses and providing team clothing / equipment for Elm Eagles SO GC members.

We hope that you can participate in our Special Fundraising Day on Sunday 19th May.

Many thanks

Peter Carroll & Peter Knight, Elm Eagles
