Galway Golf ClubJack Hume will be back at Galway Golf Club next Saturday - September 14 - to defend the prestigious Galway Senior Scratch Cup.

The event is sponsored by Snoozels Hostel, which we’re informed has been voted the No 1 hostel in Europe and No 2 in the world. It almost makes you want to head to Galway just to see what a five-star hostel looks like.

If that isn’t enough, the golf promises to be top class for the 9.30am shotgun start with Irish Amateur Open champion Robbie Cannon, Royal Dublin’s Jeff Hopkins, Mullingar’s Dessie Morgan and defending champion Hume taking on the best of the local talent.

The home brigade will be led by Eddie McCormack, Joe Lyons and Ronan Mullarney and those with an eye for planning ahead will know it’s the venue for the 2016 Irish Amateur Close Championship.
