The Irish Open Golf Tournament goes all the way back in time to 1927. With such a rich heritage, it is regarded as one of the best European Tour events by the players.
Over the years, The Irish Open has been won, by many of the world’s golfing greats, including names such as Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, Colin Montgomerie and Bernhard Langer, who each won three times.
This year, the 3 Irish Open will take place at the Killarney Golf and Fishing Club from the 29th July to 1st August 2010 with a prize fund of over €3 million. This will be the third time that Killarney has hosted the Irish Open following consecutive events in 1991 and ’92.
The Killeen course, which is the jewel in the crown of the three-course Killarney Golf Complex, was originally designed in 1972 by Eddie Hackett and Billy O’Sullivan. The Killarney lakes and high mountain range provide a stunning backdrop to this Championship course. The 2010 tournament in Killarney will not fail to excite players and golfing fans alike.
