COME down to Powerscourt Golf Club on Monday, September 9th for this year’s Irish Horse Welfare Trust Golf Classic. Having previously attracted the likes of Johnny Murtagh and with the beautiful Wicklow Mountains as a backdrop, teams of four are welcome for a highly entertaining day out. This exceptional animal charity homes and cares for 80 equines, around two thirds of which are thoroughbred, and one third cobs and ponies.

Any individuals or smaller groups may be accommodated, and all can look forward to the evening BBQ and prize-giving. A short auction has Robert Hall of RTÉ Racing as MC and some stunning prizes include a Longines watch, a Shane Lowry golf club, as well as some racing packages.
