As the horrifying images of war continue to beam across the world of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a number of golf clubs in Ireland are doing their bit in aid of the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the region.
Over the past two days, Beaverstown Golf Club in Dublin has hosted club competitions with all proceeds going directly to the Irish Red Cross (IRC) to help in their efforts to aid Ukraine.

PGA pro Brian Sweeney sponsored prizes on Tuesday with the Management Committee supporting Wednesday’s event. With competition entry fees set at €10 per person, this generous donation is bound to make a big difference to the efforts of the IRC with the club also set to donate its share of the competition entry fee this coming Sunday to the charity
Laytown and Bettystown Links in Co. Meath will also donate proceeds from this coming Sunday and Monday’s competitions to the Irish Red Cross. A raffle will also be held through the pro shop with the club looking for people to donate prizes if possible to help towards alleviating the hardship of the people in the war-torn region.
Members are being encouraged to wear blue and yellow in an effort to show solidarity with Ukraine as the golf community comes together in support of a truly horrific situation.
The proceeds of next Sunday’s & Monday’s competitions will be donated to @irishredcross for the alleviation of hardship in Ukraine. #louthchat @GolfIreland_ @OpenGolfIreland @IrishGolferMag @IrishGolfDesk @amateur_info @BettystownNews @Love_Drogheda @drogindo @meathchronicle pic.twitter.com/dBxUQTbiDo
