Establish Connections In Dromoland’s Corporate Golf Challenge

The inaugural Corporate Golf Challenge at Dromoland Castle launches this week. With a €5,000 prize fund, the Winter Challenge promises company “teams of two” a series of league matches against other local companies, to crown the best corporate golf pairing in the West of Ireland.

“The Challenge is an opportunity for local corporates to network and engage over golf,” says Mark Nolan, Managing Director of Dromoland Castle. “There’s an outstanding business community here in the West. We are distinctly aware of the value and benefits of local contacts, so this golf event is a chance to do that out on the course. We welcome those keen golfing executives, men and women alike, to enter, network and above all have some good, competitive fun.”

The prize fund, with a €3,000 share going to the winning team, includes a Corporate Golf Day, Titleist Golf Gear, Luxury Overnight Stays at Dromoland Castle, Academy Memberships, and much more. The league will play over the Winter, with the play-offs in March. Teams are guaranteed 4 matches each and each round includes pre-access to the Golf Academy for warm-up, and a post-round meal in The Figtree Restaurant.

Irish Golfer Magazine and Titleist are sponsors of the Corporate Golf Challenge.
