“Pierse Motors Volkswagen’s partnership with Lahinch Golf Club and Golf Ireland commenced in 2016 and we are delighted to continue with our sponsorship of the South of Ireland Championship. Lahinch boasts one of the finest links golf courses in the country and I have no doubt the tournament will be a huge success once again.”

Jim Nolan, Captain Lahinch Golf Club, said: “Played mid-summer at peak holiday time in Lahinch, the South is generally regarded as the most enjoyable of the amateur ‘majors’ where golf is the talk of the village throughout the week.

“Lahinch and the surrounding area is looking forward to another memorable Championship and all visitors are welcome to come along and join in the festivities.”

“Last year, all of the victorious Irish Men’s Home International team played in the South and Lahinch Golf Club appreciates the continued support of Golf Ireland in ensuring that our leading golfers have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of previous winners such as John Burke, JB Carr, Paul McGinley, Darren Clarke, and Graeme McDowell.”

Michael Coote, Chairperson, Munster Region Golf Ireland, said: “Golf Ireland is delighted to continue its long association with Lahinch Golf Club. The South of Ireland Championship is one of the oldest and most prestigious championships in the world and we wish all the competitors well when the tournament commences in a few weeks. The roll of honour of past winners truly reflects the high esteem in which the South of Ireland is held by both the players and supporters of amateur golf.”
