The Emerald Isle Takes Golf's Centre Stage
To our valued IGTOA members and partners,

The golfing world will once again turn its attention to Ireland as the Irish Open unfolds over the next four days at the magnificent Mount Juliet.
 
Ahead of July 19th, we could not have asked for a better time or place to remind golfers across the globe why the Emerald Isle is among the greatest destinations on the planet.
 
And here’s hoping one of the 16-strong Irish contingent will take the top prize in front of a lively home crowd!
 
Whether you were lucky enough to nab a ticket or plan to watch from home, be sure to enjoy this incredible occasion for our wonderful sport.
 
Below you’ll find some of the other news and updates from across the IGTOA family.
 
Until next time.
 
Yours in Golf,


Denis Kane
Chairman IGTOA
