Play your way to Augusta with Irish Golfer Events

Irish Golfer Events Champions Trophy

With our most recent competition winner, Darragh Curran having just returned from an historic visit to Augusta National, a trip to the 2020 Masters is up for grabs for those competing at any event in the Irish Golfer series again this year.

The Irish Golfer event series returns with a bang this Saturday with the forecast looking balmy for event one at Baltray which is the first our 14 events nationwide and we’ve got some extra space that has just come available, so BOOK NOW.

Competitions are singles stableford and are open to all with a GUI/ILGU handicap.

With over €5,000 worth of prizes up for grabs at each event, live scoring and first tee announcements for all players, don’t miss your chance to be part of the ultimate Tour experience.

Category winners from each event qualify for the Tournament of Champions – Grand Final on the Palmer Ryder Cup Course at the K Club with one winner on the day crowned Grand Champion for 2019.

One lucky participant from the event series will also be selected at random during our Grand Final to win a trip of a lifetime to the 2020 US Masters.

“It was unbelievable, just different gravy altogether, fantastic,” said Darragh Curran who has only returned from his winning trip to Augusta.

“When someone rings to tell you that you’ve won a trip to the Masters, it’s hard to believe them. I didn’t even remember entering as we played the event in Killarney in May! I was waiting for somebody to laugh down the phone but suddenly it was real.

“It was absolutely awesome and I’m so grateful to everyone at Irish Golfer Events for giving me the opportunity.”
