There is no doubt but that some past pupils joined golf clubs and played golf. However we have no information on them. Some may have achieved a very high standard at the game. One such player is P. J. Hehir (Lack School 1951) who achieved a golf handicap of 7 as a member of the famous links course in north county Dublin known as the Island. Over the years he has represented the Island in the various inter club golf competitions, won the title 'Golfer of the Year' in 1986 and has won the intermediate scratch cup on two occasions.
