Rumble For Crumlin

The Annual fundraising event for Crumlin Childrens Hospital takes place in Gowran Park this week.  The competition is an 18 hole 3 person Rumble for Gowran Park members and runs through the whole week.  Members are invited to play as many times as they wish during the week with the competition continuing into next weekend’s competition.  Winners will go through to a regional qualifier at a later date.  The competition is a rumble with 1 score to count on holes 1 – 6, 2 scores on holes 7 – 12 and 3 scores on the remaining 6 holes.
