The IRFU Charitable Trust Golf Outing, kindly supported by Pinergy, taking place on Friday 18th June 2021 in Powerscourt Golf Club is SOLD OUT. With a record number of 40 teams competing this year we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the teams who signed up.
The Golf Outing will be hosted by the immaculate Powerscourt Golf Club, East Course. Due to COVID-19, the format is a Team Sheet with 9 minute intervals. Tee times are to be provided to team captains closer to the date. Before each team tees-off, they will be treated to food while ensuring social distancing at all times and health guidelines compliance. Once again we have prizes for the top 3 teams, nearest the Pinergy and the longest drive.
In line with COVID-19 guidelines, there is a policy of no touching the pin flags and no rakes in the bunkers. Following the completion of their round, each team places their scorecard in to a box and may use the showers and changing rooms. Staff will ensure a limited number of people in the changing rooms in line with social distancing noting the rolling time sheet will facilitate everyone. There will be food goody bag consisting of a sandwich, crisps, chocolate and a drink provided to all team members as they register before teeing off. A burger and a drink of your choice e.g. beer, soft drink or wine will be served to teams when their round is finished. At all times both our Covid Officer, our volunteers and Powerscourt Golf Club staff will ensure COVID-19 guidelines are being adhered to and we ask that all team members follow these guidelines to ensure safety for themselves and everyone else. Winning teams will be invited back to be presented with their prizes if possible. A Q&A with Luke Fitzgerald will be announced closer to the date, including the format of the Q&A which is to be confirmed – again ensuring the safety of all involved. We will also have a Charity Raffle with some great prizes!
As mentioned above, we are complying with COVID-19 health guidelines and restrictions to ensure your safety, the safety of your team, our volunteers and Powerscourt staff at all times. We will continue to monitor and update as required.
Your support for our seriously injured players is even more appreciated during these difficult times. Like most charities, our fundraising initiatives have been severely impacted during the last year hence the continued support of all is greatly welcomed and greatly appreciated.
Thank you again to our sponsor Pinergy. Thank you to our media partners Extra.ie and Newstalk for helping us to promote the event, and Powerscourt for hosting. A special thank you to Luke Fitzgerald for his on-going support of our Golf Outing as well as featuring on our press, digital and radio advertising. Finally, a very appreciative thank you to our volunteers and to you our guests who will be joining us. Once again, please stay safe and take care and we look forward to seeing you all on the 18th!
