Killarney based Golf Tour Operator, Experience Ireland Golf & Travel, have announced a multi-year sponsorship deal with Waterford’s Gary Hurley.
The experts in designing bespoke itineraries in Ireland for those visiting the country, Experience Ireland Golf & Travel are your one stop Tour Operator for an authentic Irish experience, to not only play on some of Ireland’s best golf courses, but to also learn about the culture and heritage while staying in some beautiful properties and enjoying luxury transport and our unique Irish hospitality.
Speaking on the day of the announcement, Experience Ireland’s CEO Tom Kennedy said: “It’s great to be linking up with Gary for the next 2 years and it’s hopefully something we can continue into the future as well. We have been looking to support one of the Irish Pros on Tour and we are proud that Gary will wear our logo for the coming 2 years. We’re sure he will have some great results in 2023 & 2024, following on from his excellent end to the year in 2022.”
Gary recently gained his DP World Tour Card for the 2023 season having come through the notoriously difficult DP World Tour Q-School and this result will see him compete on Europe’s biggest golfing stage next season.
It has been a fascinating professional career to date for Hurley, who competed on the Alps Tour for the 2022 season and thanks to victory at the Alps de Andalucia, T2 at the Roma Alps Open and 3rd at the Castelconturbia Alps Open he secured his Challenge Tour card for 2023, following a 5th place finish on the year long Order of Merit.
However, just a couple of short weeks later, Gary finished tied 13th at the Final Stage of DP World Tour Q-School, exemplifying the high level of golf that he has been producing all year. He has since competed at two DP World Tour events in South Africa and has successfully made both cuts.
“I’m delighted to announce this partnership with Experience Ireland Golf & Travel and begin showcasing what they have to offer while I compete on the DP World Tour this season,” said Hurley. “I’m so proud to be Irish and to be working with a company who specialise in showing off our great country, not just our great golf courses, but our history too, is such a perfect fit.”
