Golf Marathon in Carrick-on-Shannon in aid of Irish Golf Team

68-year-old Reggie Carroll from Drumsna will compete on the Irish team for the World Deaf Golf Championship in Hawaii this October.
Reggie who is a member of Carrick-on-Shannon Golf Club is training for the big event which takes place in Hawaii from October 18- 21.

He won his place on the team after a number of competitions. He trains with teammates from around Ireland once a month.
Reggie is fundraising for the event, which he told the Leitrim Observer is “costly” when flights and accommodation are taken into consideration.
To raise funds he is holding a one-day golf marathon event - three rounds of consecutive golf at Carrick-on-Shannon Golf Club on Tuesday, July 26. He will tee off at sunrise on this date.

Those who would like to support him can donate what they can - there are donation cards at Carrick-on-Shannon Golf Club and in locals pubs and shops or you can contact Reggie direct on (087) 6288117.
