NCBI comes to Carrick-on-Shannon
The NCBI Specsavers HolmPatrick Cup is coming to Carrick-on-Shannon Golf Club, Roscommon on Monday, 20 August, where eager golfers will tee off to compete for the chance to play at St Andrew’s Scotland, and win the prestigious trophy.
Ireland’s leading opticians and audiologists – Specsavers - has continued its charity partnership with the National Council for the Blind of Ireland as the title sponsor of the HolmPatrick Cup.
The national all-island competition was founded in 1932 and is the longest running and largest charity golf tournament in Ireland. The money raised goes directly to fund the NCBI’s life-enhancing services, which help over 8,000 people with sight loss, as well as their families.
Specsavers Sligo is encouraging locals to get behind the worthwhile cause and will be supporting the event. For only €7.50 per person or €15 per team, players can compete at Carrick-on-Shannon Golf Club on Monday, 20 August from 12 pm.
The NCBI Specsavers HolmPatrick Cup sees GUI-affiliated golf courses across the country hold a qualifying tournament, the winners of which will take part in the county final and compete for a place at the provincial tournament. The four provincial winners will then play at the final, which is hosted at the world-renowned St Andrew’s Links in Scotland.
Tee times for the upcoming HolmPatrick Cup Club Qualifier are as follows:
* 12 noon - Carrick on Shannon Golf Club & Castlebar Golf Club
* 12.10pm - Ballaghaderreen Golf Club & Tubbercurry Golf Club
* 12.20pm - Boyle Golf Club & Strandhill Golf Club
