On behalf of the Coaching Management Committee Convenor, Martin Hynes and our High Performance Lead for Connacht Golf, Ian Kearney PGA, please be advised that there will be no Panel announcments until end of this month.

We wish to express our thanks to all Clubs who sent forward young boys to the recent U13 Development panel trials at Ballinrobe.

It is very encouraging to see the standard of young golfer continue to improve and there was some superb golf played in very tricky conditions.

Many thanks also to Ballinrobe for their wonderful venue and hospitality. We hope everyone is now settling back into the new school year smoothly.

Regarding the trial and panels being selected this will happen towards the end of September. The coaching programme is now a national system. The first panels chosen are the national teams and after they are confirmed then provincial and regional panels and budgets can be confirmed so it is a detailed process but it should all be confirmed by the end of September.

Again many thanks for your continued support.

Connacht Golf.
