Premier Irish Golf Tours Signs on as Sponsor of Freedom Golfs 2nd Annual Golf Outing & Derby for the Disabled
Premier Irish Golf Tours, the #1 ranked golf tour operator in Ireland, has signed on as a sponsor of the Freedom Golf Association’s 2nd Annual Golf Outing and Derby for the Disabled taking place on Monday, September 14, 2015 at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club, Ravines course in Lemont, IL.
“Many of the golfers who book tours to Ireland come from the United States and we wanted to find an organization in the U.S. that we could work with as a means of thanks for the support we receive from Americans,” said David McMahon, Managing Director, Premier Irish Golf Tours. “Freedom Golf Association (FGA) is a wonderful organization that helps deliver grass roots golf instruction to those with special needs and we are proud to support their mission and in particular, their upcoming golf outing.”
This year FGA is offering two competitions: The 2nd Annual Golf Outing at renowned Cog Hill Golf & Country Club; and The Fundraising Derby for the disabled, where fundraising skills are valued as much as golf ability. All golfers playing in the event are automatically enrolled in the Derby, but non-golfers can also get in on the derby fun and fundraising. Participants in the derby can compete alone or, better yet, form a team and start fundraising. Prizes are awarded based on reaching specific fundraising goals.
“FGA is dedicated to bringing joy and a sense of freedom to the special needs community through their inclusion in the game of golf,” said EQ Sylvester, Founder, Freedom Golf Association. “The FGA Golf Outing and Fundraising Derby allow participants and sponsors to make an impact on a special needs golfer and their family that will last their lifetime. To date we have helped introduce more than 800 special needs individuals and wounded veterans to the joy of golf and all its wonderful benefits. We appreciate the sponsorship support from Premier Irish Golf Tours and look forward to a successful event this year.”
Premier Irish Golf Tours offers custom tours as well as tour packages with suggested itineraries for specific locations within the country. Golfers can select from tours in South West Ireland, North West Ireland, Dublin & East of Ireland, and Northern Ireland. The company also offers a “Ladies Only Golf Tour” specifically designed with the interest of female golfers in mind.
Premier Irish Golf Tours features only the best links and parkland courses in Ireland including some of the top 100 ranked courses in the world. The company provides free quotes for any size groups with options including chauffeur, VIP motor coach, self-drive, or helicopter.
