We always love to see golfers Play in Pink and that’s why Clonmel Golf Club was such a sight to behold as players wore pink in aid of Breast Cancer Research.
The fairways were awash with flamingo pink as players lined out in aid of our national charity which funds a comprehensive research programme at the Lambe Institute at NUI Galway.
Even those unable to make the golf course due to Covid-19 fears were proudly donning pink and donating from their gardens in support of a most worthy cause.
One in eight women will develop breast cancer in the course of their lifetime, while one in 1000 men will also be affected. In-all, there are 3100 new cases diagnosed each year in Ireland.
Last year there were 130 ‘Play in Pink’ days around the country which have raised over €160,000 in 2019 alone, no mean feat in a time where there are so many worthy causes to support.
We probably sound like a broken record at this stage but it’s a testament to the work of Miriam Hand and the partnerships she has developed with the Irish Ladies Golf Union and Lady Captains all over the country.
Of course, men aren’t afraid of a splash of pink too and why would they be? Play in Pink days are some of the most enjoyable fairway experiences you could wish for, packed with fun and laughter and all in aid of a cause close to many of our hearts.
The golfing year is back in full swing and with it, we’d encourage you to get your club on the roster for 2020 – there’s still plenty to play for, and no shortage of pink attire to play in!
