2015 Golf Scramble – Recap

Golfers taking part in the 7th annual LIF/Molly Malone’s Golf Outing were blessed with another fine day for the event. June 8th found us out at beautiful Lake Forest Country Club enjoying a round on the Arnold Palmer golf course. Participants enjoyed a box lunch before heading out. The 18 teams participating took the game very seriously with a good bit of friendly banter taking place before the shotgun start. The event concluded with a delicious buffet dinner in the clubhouse. The top finishing teams were separated by a very narrow margin, but this year’s trophy went to Republic Bank.

Without the support of the players and the companies who generously sponsored holes or provided raffle items, the Irish Arts Foundation would not be able to donate to charities like the STAR program, Wounded Warrior Project and Wreathes Across America. We are looking forward to 2016 and our 8th year for this event.
