UK Golf Day - Re-Introduction

UK Golf Day - Re-Introduction

Plans have recently been finalised for the revival of this unique event.  

The Background 

Pat Mulcahy, London reunion dinner organiser, had often considered organising a UK Golf Day but, not being a golfer himself, found it difficult to put together. Then, just a few weeks before the London dinner of 2006 an event occurred which gave him the impetus to review the idea.

Dr. Mick Brosnan (leaving year '49) & his family were good supporters of the London dinner. Their son, Mike, a golf promoter was in the USA organising a golf event, when he died suddenly in his sleep, at the age of 46.  

The shock of this occurrence prompted Pat to purchase a silver trophy which he dedicated to Mike's memory. 

 It was named the Brosnan Bowl and will be awarded, on an annual basis to the winner, who must have attended Rockwell. ( An alternative prize will be awarded  to a guest winner, who did not attend the College)    Book now

N.B. For anyone planning to travel from Ireland, the golf course is  near to Stanstead Airport. 

Also, for those interested in flat racing, the Guineas Classic meeting is being held on this weekend at Newmarket. This is also quite close to the golf club, so why not make a weekend of it!
