Voyages.golf adds Ireland’s Opens
The Dubai Duty Free Irish Open is part of the Rolex Series Events. The 2020 Irish Open, provided by the European Tour and hosted by Co Kilkenny’s Mount Juliet Estate, was originally scheduled for play between May 28-31. The European Tour decided to postpone The 2020 Irish Open due to concerns of the impact of Covid-19. The European Tour said in a statement that the decision to postpone the 2020 Open was made ‘with public health and well-being as our absolute priority.” New dates or a cancellation is pending further collaboration between the European Tour and relative health authorities as well as the players involved.
Northern Ireland’s Portstewart Golf Club is set to host the 2021 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open for the second time in four years. The Strand golf course at Portstewart last played host to The 2017 Irish Open when John Rahm took the title and set a record for the series of an aggregate score of 264 and a record of lowest to a par of -24.
Voyages.golf has added both events to its inventory despite concerns surrounding the 2020 event at Mount Juliet going ahead. Travel insurance is always recommended to purchase before your travel dates, and always seek information from the relevant destination authorities and travel provider before you plan your trip. The Irish golf tournament is a hallmark of European golf and its future as a showcase for the great Irish golf courses is significant for Ireland and Northern Ireland’s golf development.
The return of the Irish Open to Portstewart and Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coast firmly solidifies the prestige of golf quality in the region. In 2018, The Open Championship returned to Northern Ireland for the first time in 68 years when it was played at the Royal Portrush Dunluce golf course.
Irish Open Custom Packages
Voyages.golf recommends experiencing The Irish Open with a custom-made play-golf package of local Irish golf courses mixed with a two-day attendance at the tournament. The 2012 tournament saw a sell-out crowd at Royal Portrush; it comes as no surprise that each year the tournament expects a turnout in excess of 100,000 spectators across the week.
