Join football legend Pat Jennings, at this year’s Co-operation Ireland Golf Classic, at the world- famous links of Royal County Down Golf Club.  Royal County Down is in one of the world’s most naturally beautiful links settings set against the magnificent backdrop of the Mourne Mountains in Newcastle, County Down. 

Through his support, endorsement and promotion of this annual golf classic, Pat has contributed in excess of £500,000 to the vitally important work of Ireland’s leading reconciliation charity Co-operation Ireland.  Co-operation Ireland has therefore been able to fund numerous programmes at grass-roots level in some of the more challenging communities within Northern Ireland and between both parts of Ireland, north and south. Young people who would not normally have had the opportunity to meet have been given the chance to spend time together working on projects of mutual interest so that they may develop an understanding and respect of each other’s cultures and traditions. 

This is the 26th year of the event and Co-operation Ireland is indebted to Pat for all his support over the years.  We would welcome your support of his important fundraising event for the charity.

The cost of a 4-ball is £1290 which includes light refreshments, goodie bags for all players, and post golf prize-giving 4-course dinner.

Refreshments are available in the clubhouse at Royal County Down from 09.00.  The golf classic operates a two tee start with tee times from 09.30-12.00.  The competition is a 4-ball stableford event with the best two net scores at each hole to count and the top three teams being awarded prizes.  There are also prizes for Front and Back Nine, Nearest the Pin and a Two’s Competition.

The prize-giving dinner will take place at the 4 * Slieve Donard Resort & Spa located beside Royal County Down, commencing at 7pm.  Pat Jennings will award the prizes for golfers, and entertainment is provided after dinner in the Chaplin Bar to round off the evening.
