Clare Vs Limerick Golf Challenge in Costa del Sol

Join hurling legends Brian Lohan & Ollie Moran as Clare take on Limerick for the inaugural playing of ‘The Shannon Airport Cup’, a Ryder Cup style golf trip with a difference. 

Former Clare hurling captain and two time All-Ireland Hurling Championship winner Brian Lohan will captain a Clare team against a Limerick selection lead by fellow All-Star Award recipient, National Hurling League Winner and former Limerick hurling captain, Ollie Moran.

The dates for The Shannon Airport Cup are Saturday 18th November to Tuesday 21st November 2017. The golf will take place over 2 days (Sunday 19th & Monday 20th November) at the majestic La Cala Golf Resort.

The Shannon Airport Cup comprises a 3 night stay at Sunset Beach Club in Benalmadena and includes breakfast, 2 rounds of golf at La Cala Golf Resort with airport/golf transfers, buggies and welcome pack on arrival.

Speaking at the launch of the Clare Vs Limerick Golf Challenge, Conor Galvin CEO of Golf Voyager stated that “there is an appetite for competitive team golf with a difference and bringing a hurling rivalry into the equation will certainly add to the excitement. We hosted a similar Munster Vs Leinster rugby themed golf outing in Vilamoura back in January 2017 which was a huge success. We are running that event again in January 2018 and it is nearly sold out already so there is great interest in these type of events. We are also delighted that both Shannon Airport & Padraig McGrath from P&M Golf have come on board as sponsors”.

At the launch of The Shannon Aiport Cup hosted by Golf Voyager were Fintan Ward (COO of Golf Voyager), Ollie Moran, Andrew Murphy (MD of Shannon Airport), Brian Lohan & Padraig McGrath (MD of P&M Golf Superstore).

Welcoming this unique initiative Andrew Murphy, Managing Director, Shannon Airport said: “We are delighted to support this enterprising challenge. We would like to congratulate Conor Galvin and his team at Golf Voyager on this new venture and wish all of those flying from Shannon to Malaga an enjoyable trip. We look forward to learning which team wins the inaugural Shannon Airport Cup.”
