Haverfordwest-Wicklow Twinning 2024
Plans for 2024
Haverfordwest -Wicklow Twinning
In our centenary year of 2004 Haverfordwest GC actively looked for other clubs celebrating their centenary, to provide a recognition of a great achievement. Matches were held between Machynlleth GC and Langland Bay GC and although these fixtures have now lapsed, the one enormous success was our fixture with Wicklow Golf Club, Ireland. Initially in 2004 Haverfordwest GC went to Wicklow early in the year and in return we entertained Wicklow GC at Haverfordwest later in the year. Currently, the fixture is now once a year, where we play golf for the Celtic Cross, but the friendship with our golfing friends in Wicklow has flourished and hence we twinned with Wicklow GC. This means that members of our club can play for free at Wicklow GC and vice versa. Although the golf is free, the most rewarding element is the friendship and the superb hospitality that Wicklow GC extends to us. At our most recent visit to Wicklow in April, 12 ladies and 18 gentlemen of which 26 were golfers all enjoyed the fantastic hospitality provided by Wicklow GC. The Wicklow Twinning is a full club event were all members and partners are invited.
It has been suggested that to celebrate in 2024 our 20 year friendship and twinning that as normal we extend an invitation to Wicklow in April but we are also invited to Wicklow GC in late October 2024. We would then revert to alternate years, so in April 2025 we are invited to Wicklow GC. From experience, 2 nights away in Wicklow with 2 rounds of golf, entertainment, coach from club to club, ferry crossing, accommodation and most meals provided will be around £300 per person.
To entertain our friends from Wicklow at our club we have offered Friday 26th through to Sunday 28thApril 2024. We need to provide at least two main meals with entertainment for around 30 Wicklow guests and your suggestions on how we raise funds and any ideas on entertainment would be appreciated.
How should we raise funds and is there anyone who would like to sponsor this event in April?
What entertainment do we provide?
Would you be interested in joining us to Wicklow in late October 2024 and April 2025?
We need your support and help and any ideas and suggestions will be gratefully received.
