Global Golf4 Cancer’s first campaign in the West of Ireland
Global Golf4 Cancer was launched in 2017 with an inaugural campaign in the west of Ireland. It featured (and continues to feature) a spectacular collection of golf clubs situated along the country’s famous Wild Atlantic Way coastal route between Malin Head in the north and The Old Head of Kinsale in the south ... So from Ballyliffin in Co Donegal to Old Head Golf Links in Co Cork - via the likes of Rosapenna, Murvagh, Co Sligo, Enniscrone, Carne, Westport, Connemara, Galway Bay, Lahinch, Ballybunion, Tralee and Waterville. Each of these golf clubs has been invited to periodically fly a Global Golf4 Cancer Flag on its 4th hole, and to occasionally host or facilitate cancer fundraising activities
The 1st Global Golf4 Cancer Awareness ‘Golf-Walk’
Nick Edmund initiated the campaign on 4th March, 2017 when he set off from Malin Head and began a two-stage 2,000km walk around the Wild Atlantic Way carrying a set of golf clubs. During this awareness-creating ‘golf-walk’ Nick called into the 40 clubs en route and, after playing their 4th hole, presented each with a GG4C 4-Flag. He completed the journey by playing the 4th at Old Head Golf Links on 4th May, 2018.
