Golf Classic in Aid of East Cork Rapid Response Under Way

By Alan Sheehan


The East Cork Rapid Response annual Golf Classic teed off yesterday afternoon and continues today, Thursday, 18 May with time still left to register last-minute.
The fourth annual Golf Classic is once again held at East Cork Golf Club with the proceeds going towards East Cork Rapid Response (ECRR) and it is a case of so far, so good for the event.
“It is going very well so far,” said Michael Hayes, one of the organisers of the event. “It’s very well supported by the East Cork Golf Club and the East Cork community. We are very happy with it. Forty-seven teams have registered so far and the tee times are nearly full. People can still register Today, Thursday 18 May as we can still put out a few teams at 2.30pm.
Entry costs €90 per team and includes the meal following the Classic. The format is 3 Ball Better Ball and tee times are still available for 2.30pm.
The idea for the first ECRR Golf Classic is attributed to the late Richard O’Riordan, a founding committee member of ECRR who passed away in January 2014, with the idea made possible through the generosity of the late Maurice Moloney, proprietor of the East Cork Golf Club, who passed away late the following year.
