Golf classic fundraiser for James Sugrue

Unfortunately, Tiger Woods won’t be at the golf classic in Mallow Golf Club this weekend, but James Sugrue’s many friends and supporters will be at the Ballyellis course to support the fundraiser which has been organised to help ease James’s transition into the professional game.

Mallow Golf Club is very proud of local member James Sugrue who turned professional last year, and this Friday and Saturday members and supporters will flood the majestic Ballyellis course to take part in a golf classic as a fundraiser for James to help in his early steps in the professional game.
Captain of Mallow Golf Club John ‘Skippy’ Coleman said that, “members are proud and honoured to participate and contribute in any way, shape or form to help James on his path in the professional ranks.
This weekend’s three-person team event has a brilliant array of prizes on offer, and there will also be a raffle golf-related prizes that everyone will want to win.
The fundraising committee led by Joe Dowling has put together a very attractive classic, and demand for tee times has been so great that they had to expand the timesheet to cater for everyone who wanted to play. Joe is delighted to support James, and indeed Joe’s son has been a friend and caddy for James at some big events, including the Amateur Open which James won a few years ago.
When James decided to turn professional, Mallow Golf Club members planned to hold a golf classic and give him a big send-off, but Covid intervened and plans had to be put on hold, so this weekend’s event has been a long time in the making. Best wishes to everyone involved, and to James who has been doing very well since joining the professional ranks, competing strongly in the Alps Tour this year.
