Global-Golf4-Cancer’s Wild Atlantic Way 4-Flag Campaign
Our inaugural campaign in Ireland showcases 40 golf clubs situated along the country’s famous Wild Atlantic Way coastal route between Malin Head in the north and Old Head of Kinsale in the south. From Ballyliffin Golf Club in County Donegal to Old Head Golf Links in County Cork - via the likes of Rosses Point, Carne, Lahinch, Ballybunion and Waterville - it features some of western Ireland’s most celebrated and spectacular courses. 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 fundraising activities.
The 1st Global Golf4 Cancer Awareness ‘Golf-Walk’
Nick Edmund launched the Wild Atlantic Way 4-Flag Campaign on 4th March, 2017 when he 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 in to 40 of the golf 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.
The location of the campaign has enabled GG4C to particularly support and ‘shine a light’ on the west of Ireland charity, Cancer Care West.
