Ballycastle first up on the US Kids Golf North of Ireland Summer Tour double header weekend

Lurgan completes the US Kids Golf North of Ireland Summer Tour double header weekend

The weather was perfect for the second event of the weekend at Lurgan. The course and in particular the greens were in superb condition for the young players.

Although parkland, the dry weather had Lurgan playing like a links with some of the younger players driving the first green.

History was made on the U.S. Kids North of Ireland Tour when Lurgan’s Connor Coleman became the first player to record a hole in one on the 17th hole. Connors excitement didn’t stop there as he had to compose himself and take place in a playoff with Louis Goodman. Connor won the playoff to complete an exciting day.
