Drogheda Rotary Club have been providing the Meals On Wheels service in Drogheda for 48 years.  The Golf Classic is a significant contributor to the financing of this service to the elderly and infirm in Drogheda.

This year Drogheda Rotary Club are partnering with Childhood Cancer Foundation. We plan to fund a new haematology/oncology treatment room for children attending daily at the Paediatric Unit in the Lourdes Hospital Drogheda for their cancer related care. 

Karl Allen,Drogheda Rotary President, said, “We would like every business in Drogheda to support Meals on Wheels and the Children’s Cancer Treatment Room in the Lourdes Hospital by entering a golf team or sponsoring a tee to support the good work Rotary is doing in Drogheda.”

Mary-Claire Rennick of Childhood Cancer Foundation states, “Having a treatment room specifically designed and equipped for the children’s needs will reduce the risk of cross infection and allow the children to be treated in a private and dedicated space suitable to their needs. We are delighted that Drogheda Rotary Club has very generously agreed to fund this project”. 

The fundraising target is €15,000.  There are places for 30 golf teams to play on the day.

“The Drogheda Rotary Golf Classic is really worth pulling on your golf shoes and chipping into the fundraising. Playing Baltray and supporting the Drogheda Rotary Golf Classic is a win win,” said Michael McCormick, Drogheda Rotary Meals On Wheels Coordinator.  

Founded in 1892, County Louth Golf Club, or Baltray as it is more commonly known, has established itself as one of Ireland’s finest links courses. Winner of the 2017 IGTOA Links course of the year and host to two Irish Opens.

On the day, the competition is a 4-ball Stableford event. The cost of a team is €400 with other sponsorship opportunities from €100.  The tee box can be booked from 11:00

Julian Grant quipped, “This is a marvellous links course and a superb opportunity for business to exercise corporate responsibility and enter golf teams”.
