Rory McIlroy: US Open Champion….

Monday, 20 June 2011

We are all feeling extremely proud this morning as we welcome the return of the US Open Championship to Northern Ireland! We join the rest of the country in celebrating the news that Rory McIlroy has clinched the title in a stunning display of his talent over the four day event.  And didn’t he do it in style?

Leaving his rivals in his wake, he led from start to finish becoming the first player to go 17 under par in the competitions history and eventually winning by an 8 shot margin. He broke a host of scoring records to win his first major title and become the second successive Northern Irishman to lift the trophy after Graeme McDowell triumphed at Pebble Beach last year. All hail Gmac & Weemac!!!

All that golf has made us extremely excited about our own prestigious golf event starting next week, the Northern Ireland PGA EuroPro Open, Tuesday 28th June – Friday 1st July 2011. Join us at Galgorm Castle Golf Club to watch the stars of the future play, you may even spot the next Rory!

The event is FREE to attend with FREE on-site parking. A shuttle bus is then available to bring you from the course up to the hotel, so you can round off the day in Gillies Bar & Grill where we have food promotions and entertainment running throughout the week. Or even make a night of it with fantastic overnight accommodation offers for spectators attending the event.

A great event for all the family, we hope to see you there
