The fifth annual Golf Classic for Pemba Support took place on the Castle Course, Lahinch on Saturday 6th June. Months of preparation with attention to every detail ensured that the day was most successful Classic to date. Despite the inclement weather in the first half of the day all fifty teams that had booked in turned up. This was a huge encouragement for the organizing committee and an endorsement by the golfing fraternity of the work of Pemba Support, on the ground, in Tanzania. After their game, all golfers were treated to a warm welcome in the clubhouse, a hearty meal of delicious home baking and a souvenir photograph of their team.
The main prize winners on the day were:
1.Team of Michael Neylon
2.Team of Sean Ryan
3.Team of John Daly
4.Team of Martin Flaherty
5.Team of Denis Nagle
6.Team of Ger. Hegarty
