​Event Info​

The 2017 Connacht Boys Amateur Open Championship finds itself at the end of the 2017 Championship rota and therefore scehduled for November 1 - 3 at Athenry Golf Club.

Online Entry closed at midnight October 3 (Tuesday). We had an excellent entry of in excess of 190 players for the limited field due to the shortness of daylight hours in the first week of November.

Recent course development work at the proposed host venue, Athenry, has run behind schedule due to the weather and other uncontrolled factors beyond the Club's control. As a result a Course inspection is being conducted this weekend (Saturday October 7) and Connacht Golf will make an announcemnet by Monday afternnon regarding where the event will be housed should Athenry be deemed unable to do so.

Connacht Golf is committed to stage the event so we will do all in our power to make sure that it does go ahead with as little inconvenience to entrants as possible.
