The European Tour is now making the final preparations for the Irish Open which is returning to Northern Ireland in 2015, with Royal County Down Golf Club hosting this year’s event from 28 – 31 May.
It will be the first time in 76 years that the Irish Open has been played at the world famous links in Newcastle, County Down, while Northern Ireland hosts the event for only the second time in the last 60 years, following the hugely successful 2012 Irish Open at Royal Portrush.
Rickie Fowler, one of golf’s most exciting talents, will take a walk down memory lane with one of his closest golfing friends when he joins World Number One Rory McIlroy at Royal County Down Golf Club for the 2015 Irish Open hosted by the Rory Foundation.
