The Glenavon Golf Classic returned on Friday, July 30 for the first time since 2019 with SmartPay NI on board as the main sponsor and a fabulous range of prizes sponsored by Karcher.

Lurgan Golf Club kindly hosted the event and it was a great success with almost 90 partaking in the day’s golf followed by a meal in the clubhouse.

The Lord Mayor, Glenn Barr, was on hand to give out the main prizes which were awarded on a team basis, with the team containing current Glenavon players and coaches taking first spot, Graham Douglas’ team taking second spot and a team containing former Glenavon players and coaches, led by Mark Patton, taking third spot.

The winner of the longest drive was Ronan McCrory, who also won nearest to the pin on the second hole, with Andy Heasley winning nearest the pin on the seventeenth.

A special thanks goes to Warren McCleary from Lurgan Golf Club for all their work in organising the golf.
