West of Ireland 1933
County Sligo Golf Club, April 15-18 1933
Lahinch's John Burke, the reigning Irish Close champion, won the West of Ireland title at the first attempt with a 13 and 12 victory over Roscommon's Gerald O'Connor. His winning margin was a record for the competition but according to the Irish Independent, "it did not represent any very brilliant golf. The new champion had a round of approximately 77 for the morning half and finished eleven up, and he had 25 for the six holes in the afternoon."
