Golf Classic 2017

The Glenavon Golf Classic returned on Friday 19th May for the first time since 2014 with Major Freight Services on board as the main sponsor.

Lurgan Golf Club kindly hosted the event and it was a great success with 47 partaking in the day’s golf followed by for a delicious 2 course meal in the clubhouse.

The main prizes were awarded on a team basis, with the team containing former Glenavon players Colin Crawford & Alex Denver pipping the team, which contained former Portadown and current Glentoran left-back Ross Redman, to first prize.

A special thanks goes to Wilson Collins & Paul Best from Lurgan Golf Club for all their work in organising the golf, Ian Irwin who helped organise sponsors and Andy Heasley who provided the evening entertainment.

2017 Golf Classic

The GFC Development Group is pleased to announce Major Freight Services as the main sponsor for Friday’s Golf Classic.

Proud of Northern Ireland’s heritage and inspired by its future potential, since it was established in 1997, Major Freight Services has become recognised as one of the most efficient and competitive shipping agents in the province. Although still a young company, senior staff have worked for many years in the shipping industry and the diverse blend of talents they bring, means the company can work with an equally diverse range of clients, importing the finest luxury leather suites from Milan one day and sending containers of relief goods for aid projects in Africa, the next.

While all sponsorship opportunities are now filled, there are a few spaces left for 4-balls in the shotgun start at 2pm. If you are interested please contact Eddie Drury on 07866 273306, or Leigh McClune on 07717 295928. Cost per 4 ball is £200, which includes dinner in the Club House following the event.

Statement from the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors wishes to sincerely thank all Glenavon’s sponsors (including our main corporate sponsor Bedeck), the supporters clubs, our advertisers and benefactors for their very generous and much appreciated backing throughout the 2016/17 season.

The Board also takes this opportunity to acknowledge our loyal fans, the young and the not so young, whose steadfast support for the team, home and away meant so much to the players and team management.

Finally a word of thanks to our club’s cadre of volunteers (including the Stewards and matchday staff) who perform wide-ranging duties throughout the season to ensure the effective and efficient running of Glenavon Football Club.

The directors wish everyone a happy and contented close season.

Roll on early August!
