2023 Pub League Award Nominations

We know it’s been a minute since Pub League, but now that those memories have had time to marinate, it’s time to nominate your fellow players (or yourselves, we don’t judge) for our 2023 Pub League Awards.

The link below will send you to the anonymous survey – you can submit nominations for as many or as few categories as you like. Players with at least two nominations for a given category will then be added to a ballot for a final vote, and winners will be revealed at our Annual Banquet on January 6th at the Oasis Lounge at the Murat. More details to come on that.

Please submit your nominations by Wednesday, October 11th.

2023 Indy GAA Fall League

Fall league is back this year, and is the perfect time to check out the club if you’ve been thinking about learning more about the Gaelic games, or just an excellent way for our more veteran players to participate in a low-stakes, fun environment.

The schedule will be as follows:

  • Sunday, October 1st and 15th – 11am – Hurling & Camogie
  • Sunday, October 8th and 22nd – 11am – Gaelic Football

Everything will take place at Eugene Burns Fields, 5602 Glenn Road, Lawrence, IN 46226.

Again, no experience or equipment is necessary, just show up with a set of boots and an open mind, and we’ll take care of the rest.

A Big Thanks to our 2023 Golf Outing Supporters

The 2023 Indy GAA Golf Outing was another huge success!

This past Sunday provided us with beautiful weather, while Eagle Creek Golf Club provided the lovely course, and had 20 teams show up to play.

We appreciate everyone who showed up to play but also want to recognize that this event could not have happened without the support of a few particular individuals and our sponsors.

A huge thank you to our sponsors:

We’d also like to provide a shout-out to Ciaran Connery, Andretta Erickson, Brian Mathes, Mike Monaghan, Woody White, Tim Riley, Brien Shoemaker, Jeremy Pugh, and Paul Flynn for donating their time and resources to make this event a success!

Save the date, Sunday, September 10th will be the 2023 Indy GAA Golf Outing. Here are the details:


  • Fun with your friends as you attempt the ridiculous task of getting a small white ball into a small hole several hundred yards away – 18 times.
  • Golf cart to carry your clubs, which are singularly ill-designed for the above mentioned task – but hey at least you can sit down in a very comfortable drinking position, within easy reach of the beer cooler on the cart.
  • Cheat bags for $20 (max 4 per team) – lower your score, boost your ego and add to your legend.
  • Bucket of balls and use of the driving range prior to your round – probably won’t help your golf game, but you will begin working up a thirst.
  • Unlimited beer/soda/water throughout the entire event – this will help, not just with golf game, but with philosophy of life.
  • Buffet meal of burgers & brats – the perfect accompaniment to beer.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available, so you can check out the sponsorship sheet here.
