Connacht Golf 2019 Boys Summer Camps Program opens for Club Applications.


After the very successful staging of the inaugural Boys Golf Summer camp program by Connacht Golf in 2018 which yield a nett increase in Junior Membership in the province of 13% compared to an overall National decline versus 2017.


The challenge for all Clubs and Connacht Golf shall be to sustain that momentum in Junior Boys golf for 2019 but we are reassured following the large turnouts at our two Junior Workshops in March that this can be achieved.


The Application Forms and Heads of Agreement which all applicant Clubs must complete and return have been issued at the afore mentioned Workshops and additional copies are available from the Connacht Golf Office by emailing Info@connacht.gui.ie


It goes without saying that Clubs must meet and adhere to Sport Irelands requirements under the Children First Act and meet all Safeguarding compliances and provide evidence of same. These will be vetted by officials from Connacht Golf and the Confederation of Golf in Ireland prior to approval being given to a Club to house a Summer Camp.


Once a Club has been approved, an Online Entry Portal shall then be opened by Connacht Golf in the name of that Club for their Camp to enable parents & Guardians enter their Boys to participate in the three-day camp at the date agreed between the Club and Connacht Golf.


During the course of the Camps the Boys attending shall receive nine hours of PGA Coaching funded by Connacht Golf. The Boys partaking shall also receive a Goodie bag and Certificate of participation on the final day of the camp from their local Connacht Golf representative.


Assistance shall be given to all successful applicant Clubs by Connacht Golf in promoting and advertising their camp through local Print and Online media channels.


Closing date for Club applications is Wednesday June 19, 2019.
