It’s fitting that Mac-Group, Ireland’s fastest growing construction company, is sponsoring Ireland’s foremost single day Pro-Am with news that the PGA’s richest event will take place on July 16th at the Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links.

With a prize fund of €16,000, the Mac-Group Pro-Am boasts Ireland’s largest single day prize fund event and will attract the leading golf professionals from across the country.

Resident club professional, Conor Russell, is confident that the event will attract all of the top resident Irish PGA professionals and it’s intended that the course will accommodate 50 teams on the day with shotgun starts in both the morning and afternoon.

Paul McKenna, founder and CEO of event sponsor, Mac-Group, is delighted to be involved in the event. “As a member of Portmarnock Links I have watched closely the on-going programme of works that is transforming the course into one of the finest links courses in Ireland. Portmarnock represents quality, commitment and skill – the tenacity to overcome challenges – these are the same attributes the Mac brand conveys.  It’s appropriate for Mac to be associated with a course of such heritage.”

The Mac-Group, with the tagline ‘Dynamic Construction People’ specialises in the construction, restoration and re-purposing of commercial buildings. It’s a 100% privately-owned Irish company and has grown steadily since its inception in 2002. If their success in business is anything to go by, then the July pro-am should be an overwhelming hit.

The event is open to all and team entry is €550 for 3 amateurs. More details are available from resident club professional Conor Russell (crussell@portmarnock.com / 018666547 / www.portmarnock.com).
