1976 saw the club’s first tentative steps into the world of the Pro Am. This first Pro Am, however, was to be the catalyst for the biggest event in the club’s history in 1981. The three-day Pro Am in 1981 drew a field from all over the world including Major champions Nick Price and Ian Woosnam, and European Tour winners Roger Davis, Mark McNulty, Simon Owen, John O’Leary, Des Smyth and Christy O’Connor (Jnr). In recent years European Tour winner Damien McGrane and 1995 Ryder Cup hero Phillip Walton have made appearances.
