THE Golf Doc Academy has announced the official launch of the inaugural Kerry Schools Cup golf competition for 12 – 16 year olds.

Teams of six kids are being invited to represent their secondary school in the Kerry Schools Cup and unlike other sports for 12 -16 year olds, teams can be mixed, boys only or girls only.

Speaking at the announcement of the Kerry Schools Cup,  James O’Dowd (known locally as the golf doctor) said; “I believe with the introduction of golf competitions for boys and girls through the school system will offer a real alternative to athletes that wish to partake in a non-contact sport.   My goal is make golf accessible and fun for all kids in Kerry, if they like the sport”.

The Kerry Schools Cup will be held in the beautiful Beaufort Golf Club in Killarney which is perfectly placed geographically to be accessible for schools from all over Kerry.  The competition will be held over one day on Wednesday, April 10.

Registrations for teams and schools can be completed on line on  website. The Kerry Schools Perpetual Cup is up for grabs for the winning school along with all the prestige and publicity that will come with being the winners of this great new sports competition in Kerry.
