Results from Play In Pink Day

Our inaugural Play in Pink event took place on Sunday 31st July 2022. With a full timesheet and packed golf course, from the veranda it was like watching a flamboyance of flamingos taking flight. 

Captain Gerry Murray looking very suave

The style from both the men and women was exquisite and inventive, from knee high patent socks to golf tee earrings. There was even pink crocheted golf covers on view.

Breast cancer is a disease that has probably touched all our lives in one way or another and hopefully the money we have raised will go in some small way to help in finding a cure.

Well done everyone at Blessington Lakes Golf Club. We raised €2,368.
