‘Tis the week for venue announcements and with Mount Juliet hogging the limelight, word is in that Carton House has been confirmed as the host venue for the KPMG Irish Kids Golf Tour All Ireland Trophy next year.
The stunning Maynooth resort will be a fitting home for the inaugural two-day event set for August 25th and 26th. The estate, boasting two Championship courses in the O’Meara and the Montgomerie, three Irish Open stagings and a World Amateur Championship, is also the home to the Golfing Union of Ireland headquarters where many of the Kids Tour competitors will no doubt go on to learn their trade in years to come.
Speaking at the announcement, Jason Totos- Director of Golf at Carton House said:
“We are thrilled to be hosting the KPMG Irish Kids Golf Tour All Ireland Trophy in 2020. The event will now be played over two days on both the Montgomerie and O Meara courses in August 2020 .
“We are looking forward to welcoming all the competitors and their families to the resort and know this will be a special event on what is Ireland’s best junior Golf Tour.”
It was another successful year for the innovative tour as both boys and girls aged 13 years and under experienced a professionally conducted tournament like no other at this age level, preparing those taking part for a future in competitive golf.
Having kicked off with its inaugural Easter Trophy at Killeen Castle back in April, the ever-evolving Tour touched down for Provincial Trophy competitions at Slieve Russell, County Sligo, Mount Juliet and Fota Island before staging its Grand Final at Druids Glen.
This year’s Tour was a quick sellout and entries to all the 2020 events will open soon.
