Irish and Welsh Friendly at Cardigan GCl
29 – 31 March 2016

The girls' team to represent Ireland at U16 and U14 level for the friendly match against Wales has been selected. Three U14 and three U16 Horizon Panel members will travel to Cardigan Golf Club, Wales on Tuesday, 29 March to compete in foursomes and singles matches.
At U16 level Sara Byrne (Douglas), Anna Dawson (Tramore) and Lauren Walsh (Castlewarden) will be taking to the course, while Beth Coulter (Kirkistown Castle), Anna Foster (Elm Park) and Aine Donegan (Woodstock) will represent Ireland at U14 level. 
The Horizon Programme is a new departure for the ILGU with 2016 being a pilot year. It has been designed based on the needs of young players across the country with the clear aim being to introduce players to all aspects of what is involved in a High Performance Programme. 
The Horizon Programme serves as an entry level performance programme and a stepping stone towards high performance. 
The 2016 programme provides the opportunity for over 30 players to engage with the ILGU High Performance Coaching staff, leading to approximately 12 players remaining involved for the 2017 Horizon Performance Programme.
ILGU Coaching Systems Manager Gillian O’Leary, ILGU High Performance Coach Dr Lee-Ann Sharp and ILGU U16’s Coach Michelle Carroll, will be travelling with the team.
