The Cobh Branch of ONE will host the ONE Golf Classic which will take place on Friday, 9th July 2021 in Cobh Golf Club.

The Golf Classic is being run in support of the Brú na Farraige Hostel for Homeless Veterans and Veterans Support Centre (VSC).

Brú na Farraige is currently under construction and will provide ensuite accommodation for five homeless veterans.  The VSC will be a place to meet comrades or to seek information and advice.

This will be the fourth ONE hostel for homeless veterans and the first in Munster. The others are in Dublin, Athlone and Letterkenny.  The establishment of the Brú na Farraige home will bring the number of bedrooms for homeless veterans to 54 or almost 20,000 bed nights per year.

The Cobh Branch is particularly seeking funding for the fitting out and furnishing of the bedrooms, etc. in the hostel. The approx. cost of fully furnishing a bedroom is in the region of €3,000.

Teams consisting of members of ONE, the Defence Forces and the wider Golfing Community (or any mix of the foregoing) are welcome.

Entry per team of three is only €90.

Cobh Branch also welcomes sponsorship for Greens and Tee-boxes.
