The latest event in our 2021 Irish Golfer Series took us to PGA National Slieve Russell where another scorcher awaited players at the home of Solheim Cup star, Leona Maguire.

It was another full tee-sheet too with competitors taking advantage of the fantastic Play and Stay opportunities at the stunning resort to make this stop an all-family affair.

With our usual €5,000 worth of prizes and Grand Final places on offer, and conditions conducive to low scores, there were a few breaking the forty points barrier in their bid to nail down victory.

In Category One, Nicky Cosgrave lay down a stern marker with 40 points playing off 5 and he wouldn’t be beat on the way to taking home the TaylorMade SIM2 Driver while booking his place at November’s Grand Final at the K Club.

In Category Two, Ian Holmes was the star of the show, coming in with 43 points playing off 14, shooting the lights out en route to winning a new TaylorMade SIM2 Max Driver and guaranteeing his Grand Final Place.

Not be be outdone, Brid Connellan fired 43 points of her own in Category Three, beating everyone to the TaylorMade SIM2 Max Driver and a K Club date for November. Fionnuala Ryan and Corey Curtis honed in on the Nearest to the Pin prizes while Lar Ryan’s 71 won the Best Gross on the day.

If you won one of the prizes below, a member of our events team will get in contact with you early next week to arrange collection or delivery of your prize. Our next event is at Seapoint on Sunday September 12th and if you wish to book CLICK HERE
