The Annual Friends of Tipperary Football Golf Classic, sponsored by Mr. Mister Menswear – will take place at Thurles Golf Club on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th May, 2018.
It is a great opportunity for every golfer of any handicap to come along and play a superb golf course while at the same time mix it with and support the Tipperary footballers just weeks before they set out on their championship campaign for 2018.
Teams of four cost €120 (€30 per head) while tee boxes can be sponsored for €50.
The Annual Friends of Tipperary Football Golf Classic is sponsored again this year by Mr Mister Menswear whom all in Tipp football are extremely grateful to for their continued sponsorship and support to us over many years.
The Annual Golf Classic is a very important fundraiser for Tipperary football and is our biggest fundraiser of the year. All money raised goes into supporting financially all our Tipperary football teams. It costs a lot of money to ensure our teams are well prepared and well looked after in order for them to compete at the highest level.
We have enjoyed tremendous success over the past few years and last year’s winning of Division 3 of the Allianz National Football League by our senior footballers and being promoted to Division 2 was a huge lift to football in the county. This year our senior footballers continued their progression and barely lost out on promotion to Division 1.
With only a few weeks to go to the Golf Classic tee times are now open for booking and you can contact Martin O’Dwyer at 086- 2549154 or any of the committee members of the ‘’Friends’’ or any members of the Tipperary Football Board to book a tee time. Entry into the Golf Classic is as follows: €120 for a team of four which includes a goodie bag, free burgers at the 10th hole and a competition for “Nearest the Pin” and “Longest Drive” competition.
There are also a number of sponsorship opportunities. Tee boxes can be sponsored at €50 each while there are also opportunities to sponsor our Longest Drive Competition, Nearest the Pin Competition as well as prizes for first, second and third place. We are also looking for people to donate prizes for our raffle.
Again we appeal to all our supporters and friends to support this very important fundraiser for what should be a great few days of golf and where all the participants can come together and enjoy a great social day out. Looking forward to seeing you there.
