Golf clubs in Ireland are to receive €2.8million, in grants of up to €25,000 each, to help with funding during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

145 clubs will receive the grants from the €2.8m club resilience fund, which has been provided by Sport Ireland.

The aim of the fund is to: “Provide short-term financial help to golf clubs, support business resilience and future sustainability post Covid-19.”

Clubs were invited to apply for funding at the end of 2020, providing they met a certain criteria which was put in place to ensure financial support went to the clubs most in need.

In a statement, Golf Ireland chief Mark Kennelly said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has had, and continues to have, a severe financial impact on golf clubs which have been closed for 5 of the last 12 months.

“The submissions received from clubs confirmed the significant need for financial assistance and Golf Ireland made a strong proposal to Sport Ireland for significant support for clubs.

“Golf Ireland is supporting its member clubs in every way we can and we are delighted to have secured this funding for golf clubs in the Republic of Ireland. A total of 145 clubs will receive funding from this scheme immediately and we hope that several more will benefit from Fáilte Ireland’s Business Continuity Fund in the coming months.

“In addition, we hope that many of our clubs in Northern Ireland will receive funding from the Sports Sustainability Fund in the near future.”
