Coghlan-Cusack Marathon Golf Classic

April 20, 2005

in Hingham, MA 


In its decade of existence the Eamonn Coghlan-Neil Cusack Marathon Golf Classic has become a staple on the local scene, kicking off the golfing season each spring with a celebrity-studded gala two days after the Boston Marathon. The event has raised over $270,000 for Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children, and its organizers are looking forward to the biggest and best edition yet on April 20. 

The 10th annual installment of the ECNC Classic is scheduled for South Shore Country Club in Hingham that day, with a 12 noon shotgun start followed by an awards banquet. This year’s tournament will be dedicated to the late Jim Hannan, a charter member of the ECNC committee, who passed away earlier this month.

Over the years celebrities from both sides of the Atlantic have participated in the ECNC tournament -- Eamonn Coghlan and Neil Cusack themselves, entertainers Finbar Furey and Niall Toibin, former Red Sox pitchers Bill Lee and Luis Tiant and manager Joe Morgan, present and former Patriots like Adam Vinatieri, Babe Parilli, Larry Eisenhauer, and Gino Cappelletti, boxers Gerry Cooney, Micky Ward and Dana Rosenblatt, former Celtics Jo Jo White and Ernie DiGregorio, ex-Bruins Ken Hodge, Johnny McKenzie, Rick Middleton and Johnny Bucyk, and a host of New England Revolution players and coaches from Frank Stapleton to Taylor Twellman, along with and radio and television personalities Steve Burton and John Dennis. Speakers and entertainers at the post-tournament dinner have included former heavyweight champion George Foreman, Delores Keane, and John McDermott.

The Eamonn Coghlan-Neil Cusack Marathon Golf Classic -- named for the former world mile record-holder and the only Irish winner of the Boston Marathon (in 1974) -- is sponsored by Foxwoods Resort Casino, Honey Dew Donuts, United Liquors, the New England Revolution, Magner’s Irish Cider, New Balance Athletic Shoes, Galway Irish Crystal, Kerr Printing, and Tuohy Sports and Entertainment, in association with the Aisling Gallery of Hingham. 

Although a sold-out field is anticipated again this year, a few spots (at $150 per player or $600 per team) remain available. For information contact the ECNC Classic c/o Aisling Gallery, 229 Lincoln Street, Hingham MA 02043, e-mail, or telephone (781) 773-1097.
