Your Golf Travel has announced its official sponsorship of the Challenge Tour’s Northern Ireland Open which will take place at Galgorm Castle from August 28-31.
The 2014 Northern Ireland Open will look to build on the momentum generated by last year’s tournament which saw just over 22,000 golfers watch Daan Huizing of the Netherlands triumph in a dramatic play-off victory over 2008 Ryder Cup star Oliver Wilson.
This year’s £140,000 showpiece promises another stellar line-up, headlined by five-time European Tour winner Michael Hoey, and including several European and Challenge Tour winners.
Golfers wanting to see the very best up and coming golfers from the Challenge Tour will be able to do so for free simply by registering for a ticket via niopen.co.uk. As an extra incentive, Your Golf Travel will be offering a complimentary £50 voucher for attendees to use on their next golfing holiday.
Gary Henry, Director of Galgorm Castle said, “We are delighted to have Your Golf Travel as the official travel partner of the NI Open 2014. Your Golf Travel is the market leader in golf travel and the NI Open is the perfect partnership to interact with the golf enthusiast.
“The NI Open places Northern Ireland in the global shop window to a potential audience of over 400 million viewers. With five time European Tour winner Michael Hoey (NI Open event ambassador) heading up the international field from 28th August – 31st August 2014, the NI Open will showcase world class golf with free entry to the event!
“Northern Ireland’s major champions Darren Clarke (Your Golf Travel Ambassador), Rory McIlroy & Graeme McDowell continue to shine the spotlight on Northern Ireland golf and the Northern Ireland Open will also showcase that Northern Ireland truly is- ‘Made for Golf.'”
Your Golf Travel co-founder Ross Marshall said: “We’re thrilled to continue our ongoing support towards golf in Northern Ireland, which extends through our global brand ambassador Darren Clarke who hails from Royal Portrush.
“Northern Ireland is home to some of the best links courses in the world, but the retention of GalgormCastle as host venue shows the variety of golf on offer.
“We’re sure this will be a great week for Northern Ireland and will no doubt reinforce it as a must-see golfing destination.”
