The second annual Specsavers Pro-Am Tournament took place at Lucan Golf recently – this is the second time the Liffey Valley Specsavers store has sponsored the event after the successful launch in 2022. More than 220 professional and amateur players teed off this morning for the Lucan Golf Club Pro-Am which has been backed by the local Specsavers store for the second year in a row. There was plenty of excitement amongst the golfers for the hugely anticipated event which was also attended by staff and management from Specsavers Liffey Valley.
Store manager, Stacey Connolly, said: “It is brilliant to be involved with the local community in this way. Sponsoring the Lucan Golf Club Pro-Am is so important for us, to see the members – many of whom are Specsavers customers – come out to enjoy the day is just brilliant.”
In 2022 Specsavers Liffey Valley Retail Director Conor Dewey approached Lucan Golf Club about holding an event aimed at thanking the community for its support throughout the years. The Liffey Valley team worked closely with Lucan Golf Club General Manager, Pat Barrett, on the idea which led to the inaugural Specsavers Pro-Am at Lucan Golf Club in September last year. Conor said: “I think it’s fantastic that we can give back to the community by sponsoring this event in Lucan Golf Club. They have added a new hole since last year which is tremendous to see. This is only our second year sponsoring this event in Lucan Golf Club and we can’t wait to continue our partnership with the club – and the community – for many years to come!”
Lucan Golf Club General Manager, Pat, added: “We are thrilled to have Specsavers Liffey Valley back with us again, we really appreciate their support for this important event.”
Although the team from Liffey Valley Specsavers will attend this year’s Pro-Am, they will not be taking part in the event, however, Conor revealed that some of the staff from the store have been practicing their skills and are aiming to play competitively in 2024!
