Great interest in Ladies 3-Day classic

It's one of the most popular events on the north west's golfing calendar with the numbers of players taking part growing every year.

This year's Donegal Ladies 3-Day Golf Classic takes place next week - on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, May 24th - 26th.

Once again, players will have a chance to tackle three of the county's top courses.

Day One will be played at Dunfanaghy Golf Club and then it's on to Ballybofey and Stranorlar on Wednesday.

The final day of competition will be played at Letterkenny Golf Club on Thursday.

Players taking part can play as individuals or as part of a team.

Players can also choose to play on one, two or all three days.

Daily scores are accumulated towards overall scores at the end of the three days.

Daily prizes will be presented in each club on the day of the competition.

The team and individual prizes will be presented on the final day at Letterkenny.

The format of the competition is Stableford.

Well supported

The ladies classic is always extremely well supported and with an improvement in the weather recently, this year promises to be no different.

What makes it so popular is that players are given the opportunity to play the three courses for only €45 (and it's even cheaper for club members).

Individual fees are only €15 per day.

The respective lady captains - Mary Lafferty (Dunfanaghy), Margaret McCrossan (Ballybofey and Stranorlar) and Jacqueline Ireland (Letterkenny) are leading up the organisation of this year's classic and more details can be found by contacting any of the clubs.
