THE Castlegregory Community Golf Course Association is amongst the 35 community groups, sports clubs and organisations from all over Ireland who were today announced as national finalists in the National Lottery Good Causes Awards.

The club is now set to contest in the Youth category of the Awards. With the support of Good Causes funding through the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth, members of the club formed the ‘GameOn Autism Golf Club’ programme which encouraged young members with autism to participate in the game, becoming the first inclusive golf programme of its kind in Ireland.

The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony which takes place on Saturday October 1 in the Kilashee House Hotel, Co. Kildare, where each of the seven category winners will receive €10,000 and the overall Good Cause of the Year will take home an additional €25,000.
