Each year the Society runs a World Championship which is attended by golfers of all standards from a dozen countries around the world. Although using only one arm standards are very high. We have members with single figure handicaps who can hit drives up to 300 yards. The event is being held in Carlow Golf Club this year. This will be our second World Championship in Carlow. The week is very busy with lots of golf, entertainment, fun etc. The Championship qualifiers are played on Monday & Tuesday mornings. First round knock out & Quarter Finals are held on Thursday morning & Thursday afternoon with the Semi-Final being held on Friday morning culminating in the Championship Final on Friday Afternoon. The Non- Qualifiers compete in Stableford Competitions on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday mornings.  We start off the week with our Flag Raising Ceremony on Sunday evening. As well as Sunday evening we have entertainment in the Club on Tuesday & Wednesday evenings with the Midweek prize giving also on Wednesday evening.
