Killarney Golf & Fishing Club is delighted to welcome St. Brendan’s College to the Killarney Golf Academy at Lackabane. The junior golf programme was launched on Wednesday 9th of February. The Men’s club have engaged our Club Professional Mark Heinemann to provide a series of lessons to the St. Brendan’s College, Senior and Junior Golf teams. This initiative is taking place at a great time as it will be ahead of the National Schools competition in Newcastle West Golf Club in March. It is hoped that this new partnership between Killarney Golf & Fishing Club and St. Brendan’s College will help to develop and nurture new golfing talent in the greater area

Austin Stacks Golf Classic Launch
Rockie golfers and supporters gathered in The Brogue Inn on Sunday evening for the launch of the 2022 Austin Stacks Golf Classic which takes place on Friday 25th March in Tralee Golf Club. Speaking at the launch, Austin Stacks Chairman Shane Lynch said that “The Rock has a long and storied history of golf fundraising events and this year’s edition promises to be our biggest yet. As we emerge from Covid restrictions, the Golf Classic provides our fabulous supporters with a fantastic day out at the magnificent Barrow links course and an opportunity to celebrate our Senior Team’s hugely successful 2021 campaign which culminated in our 13th County Championship title and the return of the Bishop Moynihan Cup to the Rock”.
Shane remarked that this year’s Golf Classic is a hugely important part of Austin Stacks’ fundraising campaign to generate much-needed finances required for the club’s pitch upgrade programme and to alleviate the costs of the Senior Team’s County and Munster Championship campaigns. He added: “like all GAA clubs, our fundraising capability was adversely impacted by the Pandemic and we now call on all our supporters and on keen golfers in the Kingdom and beyond to get behind this fabulous event and help Austin Stacks finance the next wave of development in the club”. At the launch, which was attended by several of the County Championship winning team, Shane thanked the club’s Golf Classic committee who have worked tirelessly over the past number of months to make the event a reality, and also to Tralee Golf Club for hosting the event.
In addition to playing one of the best links courses in the world, teams of four will play for some fantastic prizes including a draw on the day for four All Ireland Football Final tickets. Full details of the Austin Stacks Golf Classic are available on the club’s website at www.austinstacks.ie.
