The Fairhaven Trophy gets underway on Friday 4th of May at the impressive Fairhaven Golf Club, Lytham. This prestigious Under-18 event, which regularly attracts a quality international field is played over 72 holes of stroke play and is a coveted title in the boys and girls annual calendar. 

Recognised by the hierarchy of golf as one of the best courses in Northern England, Fairhaven has much to offer and presents a fine test of golf which has hosted the Girls Home Internationals in 2009 as well as The Open Regional Qualifying Series annually. 

Historically the Irish Girls’ have performed well at this event with Annabel Wilson (Lurgan) and Mairead Martin (Kanturk) finishing in 3rd and 6th place respectively in 2016 and Sara Byrne (Douglas) finishing 3rd in 2017.

This year Sara Byrne (Douglas) will return alongside Munster Girls’ Champion Aine Donegan (Woodstock) both of whom have travelled with Manager Gemma Butler (Birr) and will hope to emulate and better the success of previous years.
