Lady Captain Susan responded, stressing once again Mallow’s commitment to the charity’s ‘Play in Pink’ fundraising initiative, and thanked all sponsors and everyone who had put such effort into a remarkably successful day for the club

Well done to all involved at Mallow from everyone here at IGM. The Play in Pink initiative is one very close to all our hearts and the more pink we see on the golf course this year, the better.
