Former rugby stars Tommy Bowe and Rory Best, impressionist Conor ‘Sketches’ Moore, former Cork GAA All-Star footballer Valerie Mulcahy and TV presenter Craig Doyle will all play in the Horizon Irish Open celebrity Pro Am at The K Club on Wednesday September 6th.
Cork sporting legend Valerie Mulcahy said: “I’m really looking forward to playing in the Horizon Irish Open Pro Am this September. It’ll be a nerve-wrecking but great day out.”
After a hugely successful hosting in 2016, the island of Ireland’s national open will return to The K Club when the 68th edition is played from September 6th to 10th. Returning to The K Club is Rory McIlroy. The four-time Major Champion secured a famous victory at the County Kildare venue in 2016 after producing a stunning eagle-par-birdie finish to secure his first professional victory on Irish soil by three strokes.
Joining Rory is 2019 Open Championship winner Shane Lowry, three-time Major Champion Pádraig Harrington, six-time DP World Tour champion Tyrrell Hatton and two-time PGA TOUR winner Séamus Power. Further star names are still to be announced between now and September.
A week of entertainment for the whole family is promised with a mix of music and golf on site at The K Club as Scouting for Girls and The Stunning will headline the main stage at the Horizon Irish Open.
Scouting for Girls, known for hits such as She’s So Lovely, Elvis Ain’t Dead and This Ain’t a Love Song, will take to the main stage in the Championship Village on Saturday September 9. The English pop rock band are on Tour with Olly Murs in the UK this Summer before taking to the stage in Co. Kildare.
Formed by Steve Wall in Galway, this will be The Stunning’s first time playing the Horizon Irish Open. The Brewing Up A Storm singers will perform on Sunday September 10. Both acts will take to the stage once the final putt drops each evening.
