Open is closing in on Kilkenny's Deerpark

PREPARATIONS continue apace for the third Irish International Pitch and Putt Open next month.

The game's top players from Holland, Catalonia, Great Britain and Ireland will be in action in Killarney. The Deerpark course will be well able to stage the festival.

They are certainly used to hosting the major events. It will be the most important weekend in their history. The club was formed in 1973.

The site was formerly unused rough ground opposite Fitzgerald Stadium. More details from office@deerparkpitchandputt.com or www.deerparkpitchandputt.com.
