All Category winners on the day go through to the Golf Digest Open Grand Final at the Heritage Golf Resort and the winner will be crowned the Golf Digest Open Champion Golfer 2020.
Due to COVID-19 there will be no goodie bags or prize giving. However, there will still be FREE drinks at the reception, the 9th Hole and one the first tee. As usual, there is also a FREE delicious burger after nine holes...yum.
The club is situated in the beautiful country of Kilkenny and was founded in 1929. In 1994, a new clubhouse was built and the club extended the golf course from 12-holes to 18-holes in 1999.
The stream at Callan comes into play on the six hole with the par 3, 12th hole requiring 155yd carry over water to the green. Well placed spinneys are there to catch wayward drives and there is a pond left of drive on the ninth, while all the greens are bunkered and well protected.
A stern and enjoyable test awaits all our players at the end of July, on one of the best parkland courses in Kilkenny.
