Golf Classic 2024 Report

Friday May 31st was a beautiful sunny Friday at Rathfarnham Golf Club which was the location for the inaugural PHA Golf Classic.

There were 12 teams playing in four-balls commencing at 13:30 with 10 minute intervals between teams.

The course was in magnificent condition with the annual Pro-am having been played there the previous week.

The images below reflect the weather and team spirit (click /tap on the thumbnails to see an expanded view of each image). The competition was keenly fought and the team captained by Morgan Crowe was victorious in the end. Alas, the team I was part of finished only second, however I am now the owner of some lovely Rioja reserve for my efforts.

After the golf there was a sit down meal which was sublime followed by a raffle and prize-giving. The atmosphere was electric and buzzing no doubt aided by the magnificent weather.

At the outset teams were provided with a goodie bag, details of the competition and a letter explaining what Pulmonary Hypertension is and where the funds raised would be spent.

The great news is that with Revenue application of tax rebate due to donation to a charity, our profit for the day was c.€18,000. This is a marvelous outcome and my sincere thanks to all our sponsors, participants and the team on the day that ensured the outing flowed.
