St Patrick’s Day Golf Challenge at Lough Erne to raise funds for cancer charity

Charity Fund Raiser at Lough Erne Resort - St Patricks Day
The Lough Erne Resort in Co Fermanagh is launching a fundraising campaign to support Cancer Connect on St Patrick’s Day.
The main hotel building will be flooded with green light as the resort embraces Tourism Ireland’s #GoGreen4PatricksDay campaign and the 18th green will be the venue for a charity ‘night golf’ challenge.
“The 18th hole Challenge will kick start a series of fund-raising events called the 100k PROJECT,” said Lynn McCool, Lough Erne’s Director of Golf.
“The final goal for Cancer Connect NI is to raise 100k to purchase a house in Belfast whereby patients travelling for treatment will have access to a ‘home away from home’.”
The Night Golf Challenge – Nearest the Pin and Beat the Pro – will take place on the 18th hole using fluorescent golf balls. It costs £5 pounds per person to enter with all proceeds donated to the Fermanagh based charity Cancer Connect.
There are categories for Junior U10, U16, ladies, gents and even ‘non-golfers’ giving everyone an opportunity to win one of the fantastic prizes up for grabs. All proceeds raised from entry fees on the night will be donated to Cancer Connect. If you can’t attend in person, you can still donate and the resort will nominate someone – hopefully talented – to hit your shot!
“I’m very excited about the event and couldn’t believe how good the Night Golf equipment performed when we trialled it at the Resort. It will be a sea of green – green golf balls and the fairways, bunkers and tees will all be lit green for St Patricks Day,” added Lynn.
To enter the Night Golf Challenge call 02866 345 766 / ROI 048 66 345 766 or simply turn up on the day.
Alternatively make a donation by texting CCNI11 plus the amount you wish to donate to 70070 (UK Numbers) or visit
Come along for an evening that promises to be a fun filled event for all the family including traditional music in the clubhouse and a special St. Patrick’s Menu on offer in the Loughside Bar & Grill from 6-9pm. The golf challenge will get underway at approximately 7pm. For Loughside Bar & Grill or Catalina Restaurant bookings contact 028 6632 3230 as prior booking is advised.
