On Sunday 16th May, Clongowes Wood Golf Course was a hub of activity as the 2021 Clongowes Golf Open Championship was played. We had an impressive 97 entries, and despite some inclement weather in the second half of the afternoon; it was a fantastic afternoon on the busy fairways.

 

The competition was for Handicap and Novice golfers, with prizes for the overall best in school as well as section prizes for the three lines.

 

Congratulations to Marcus Sullivan in Rudiments who won the handicap championship with a superb level par gross round! A remarkable card included two birdies.

 

There was also some superb golf in the novice section for golfers without club handicaps. Congratulations to Oliver O’Callaghan in Grammar who shot a fine seven over par round to take the school prize in this category.

 

This was the highlight of the golfing year, which unlike other sports was able to see a lot of action despite the pandemic with a record number of boys receiving lessons and getting out onto the course!
