Sligo Grammar School has had a golfing team for many years. Over the years SGS has has competed in many schools competitions, both Match Play and Stroke Play. The school has had both boys teams and girls teams do well in competition, with many exceptional individual players emerging. Some SGS golfers have gone onto develop their careers, even receiving scholarships to Irish and US Universities, including Holly Robinson, David Brady and Michael Durcan.
Congratulations to the Sligo Grammar School Girls Golf Team who came second in the Junior Girls All-Ireland Golf Competition on Monday 29th April. The girls, Maebh McLoughlin and Sophie Reynolds, won the Connaught Shield and went on to play the All-Ireland at Milltown Golf Club in Dublin. Used to playing out of County Sligo Golf Club, a links course, the players dealt with the challenge of the parkland course brilliantly. Well done and here’s to next year!
Huge thanks go to Mr Pat Doherty who was the teacher in charge of golf for many very successful years.
