Captain’s Charity Day has raised €50,000 for Breast Cancer Research.

Friday May 18th last, saw a large turnout at the Galway Golf Club in Salthill for the Captain’s Charity Day which was being held in aid of Breast Cancer Research.

The “Play in Pink” event saw over 120 golfers compete over the beautifully prepared 18-hole layout and the novel format of the “Champagne Pink Ball Scramble” certainly added to the enjoyment of all those present.
