Irish Golf Classic

The 2020 Socially Distant 34th Irish Golf Classic

After much thought and consideration, the Irish Alumni Association Board made the decision to cancel the in-person 2020 Irish Golf Classic. This event was originally scheduled to take place in July and was then rescheduled for September. However, due to continued uncertainty as we moved into the start of the school year, we collectively felt it was best to cancel the event altogether for the health and well-being of all.

Thank You!

Dear Alumni and Friends,

The Irish Alumni Association Board would like to extend a huge thank you to all of our alums, family and friends, and businesses that supported our 2020 Socially Distant Irish Golf Classic.
