AIB Ladies for the Links at Portmarnock

12.31am 29th February 2008 - Sponsorship

Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Links is to host the AIB Ladies Irish Open, from 11th – 13th July. The championship, with a prize fund of €450,000, will be the only major women’s professional golf tournament in the world played on a natural ‘links’ golf course in 2008.

The Links at Portmarnock was selected as a result of the overwhelmingly positive response to the Women’s British Open being played on St. Andrews Links in 2007.

It will also be the first major championship to be played on what was once the Jameson family’s private golf course. First developed in 1858, and one of the earliest courses in Ireland, Bernhard Langer incorporated part of the original layout in his design of the 7,000 yard championship links, which opened for play in 1995. The use of dunes and natural terrain should please even the most ardent links purists.
