The Kilkenny GAA Golf Classic took place on the 23rd & 24th May last at Gowran Park Golf Course.  Kilkenny GAA would like to thank everyone who contributed to the event, which was a resounding success to the benefit of our Na Cait Oga academy teams.

A special word of thanks to all the sponsors, in particular our overall Platinum Sponsor, MW Hire and all the Gold Sponsors,  Tee Sponsors, Prize Sponsors, Team Sponsors, Club Sponsors and Gowran Park for hosting the event.  See full list of Sponsors below.

Thanks also to all the teams that participated over the two days – a lot of golf was played & lots of stories were told….. (see below a list of all the prize winners).

Finally, Kilkenny GAA would like to thank all on the Golf Classic Committee for their time and commitment in organising and running such a fantastic event.
