Earlier this year the Golfing Union of Ireland introduced the GUI All-Ireland Gold Medal tournament, giving club golfers a unique opportunity to participate at individual level in an all-Ireland GUI event.

Spread across three different handicap categories, the competition was open to all club members and entry was free for all affiliated golf clubs.

This week the 36 finalists from all over Ireland take to the Ryder Cup course at The K Club with play set to get underway on Tuesday morning and Sharon Smurfit, Director of Golf at The K Club said: “I, along with my team are honoured that The K Club is hosting the inaugural 2019 All Ireland Gold Medal Final on our Ryder Cup Course. We look forward to welcoming the all-Ireland finalists to what will be a thrilling end to this new competition. The Ryder Cup course has hosted many special events including the Ryder Cup in 2006 and more recently the Irish Open in 2016, so the finalists will have a challenging day. We are delighted to work alongside the GUI in hosting this All Ireland Final and I wish all the competitors the very best of luck.”
