Fred Perry Championship.

An inter-club four-ball championship for teams of 10 players, all of whom must be over 55, was named in honor of the former GUI President and Connacht Branch stalwart who served with distinction on the West of Ireland Championship Committee for 42 years before his death on March 3, 2018.  Fred Perry guided generations of Irish golfers through the highs and lows of championship golf.  “Fred was a one off,” says former GUI President John Moloughney. “He was committed to golf and the ethos of the game. He was a father figure in Irish golf.”  His immense stature stemmed from his unparalleled commitment to the game.
