This famous course designed by Pat Ruddy & Tom Craddock has hosted the prestigious Seve Trophy and is a four time Irish Open Venue. A fitting venue for the season ending All-Ireland and again the competitors of the tour will walk in the footsteps of the world’s best.

The KPMG Irish Kids Golf Tour has become the go to Junior Tour in Ireland with six amazing venues now on its 2019 rota. With KPMG on board as leading sponsor, the Tour offered professionally conducted competitions for both boys and girls aged 13 years and under, that helped develop players both on and off the golf course.

As part of the sponsorship, KPMG provided goody bags and branded caps to everyone involved with the aim of the Tour focussed on preparing kids for competitive golf in the future.

Hopefully the 600 or so who competed this year across its staging will be feeling more ready than ever and we have no doubt that this event will only go from strength to strength, especially now with Druids Glen on board too.
