Dunfanaghy celebration Pro-Am this weekend

Golf

 

The committee of Dunfanaghy Golf Club has decided to revive the Pro-Am to celebrate their historic inclusion in the Golf Digest Top 100 courses listing for 2015 and to mark the success of the European Ryder Cup Team in Gleneagles last September under the inspired captaincy of Dunfanaghy member Paul McGinley.

The competition will be led by 52 of the top club professionals of the PGA plus there will be 52 amateur teams competing.

The event takes place this Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th and has a professional prize fund of €15000.

Golf has been played at the Dunfanaghy links since 1884 and they have been affiliated to the Golfing Union since 1906.

The course was originally designed by the great Harry Vardon after whom the "Vardon Trophy" awarded by the USPGA to the score average leader annually (Rory McIlroy 2014) and the "Harry Vardon Trophy" awarded by the European Tour to the winner of the Race to Dubai.
