The IRFU Charitable Trust Golf Outing has been postponed until Friday 18th June 2021 due to the pandemic

Due to COVID-19, the IRFU Charitable Trust Golf Outing, kindly supported by Pinergy, has been postponed until Friday 18th June 2021 in Powerscourt Golf Club.  With a record number of teams competing this year it is unfortunate that we have had to delay the Golf Outing but ensuring the safety and well being of all involved is our priority.  We hope to see all of our teams already booked joining us in June and hopefully a few new teams as well looking forward to getting out!  Thank you to those teams who have signed up already for your understanding and special thanks to our sponsor Pinergy and host for the event, Powerscourt Golf Club. 

The Golf Outing will be hosted by the immaculate Powerscourt Golf Club, West 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. The cost for a team of 4 to join the Golf Outing is €600.

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 served to those teams who have finished – the detail of which is to be confirmed so that we are compliant with all social distancing and health & safety guidelines at the time. Winning teams will be invited back to be presented with their prizes. A Q&A with Luke Fitzgerald and special guests will be announced closer to the date, including the format of the Q&A which is to be confirmed – again ensuring the wellbeing 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 the safety of you, your team, our volunteers and Powerscourt staff at all times.  We will continue to monitor and update as required.

We will have more team times available for the June 2021 Golf Outing hence for those who wish to ensure they get their team in, please contact Linda Black by email: linda.black@irfu.ie.

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 teams already booked – and new teams who would like to join us on the 18th of June – are 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 the event 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 next June.  Once again, please stay safe and take care and we look forward to seeing you on the 18th!
