Golf With Stars At the K Club

For Bóthar

Golf with Stars (GWS) is a fundraising event which is held annually for the development aid agency, Bóthar. This year Golf with Stars will be taking place in the famed and illustrious surroundings of the K Club Co. Kildare, previous hosts of not just the European Open but also the Ryder Cup.

Golf with Stars gives you (and 2 friends) a chance to tee off with some of Irelands sporting legends and to play on one of the most prestigious golf courses in the World. Amongst those already confirmed to take part include rugby stars Tommy Bowe (Ireland, Ospreys), Tomás O’Leary (Ireland, Munster), Frankie Sheahan (Munster, Ireland), Mick Galway (Munster, Ireland) and Anthony Foley (Munster, Ireland), and 10 times Irish Champion jockey Charlie Swan.

Entries to the Golf With Stars draw can be purchased online at golfwithstars.com. Tickets cost €20 for one entry. Three entries cost €50 or seven cost €100.

Draw entries will be accepted from 12th May 2011 to midday July 8th 2011, winners will be notified by email. The event will take place at the K Club in Kildare on Saturday 16th July. Not only will winners play with one of the stars but teams will also be treated to a gourmet BBQ cooked at the K Club by celebrity chef Neven Maguire.

Tommy Bowe, a long time supporter of Bóthar and regular with Golf with Stars said “Most of us who have signed up to take part in Golf with Stars would consider ourselves to be able golfers who enjoy a round or two. But, every year we get to meet new and very talented golfers and more often than not they show us a thing or two about how it’s done on the golf course! I hope Bóthar supporters will register at golfwithstars.com to be in with chance to participate in Golf with Stars 2011”.

All funds raised for Golf With Stars will go towards supporting the charity’s projects across 35 developing world countries. Bóthar enables families and communities worldwide to overcome hunger and poverty and to restore the environment in a sustainable way.
