Darren Clarke wins British Open…

Sunday, 17 July 2011

Galgorm Resort & Spa would like to send out a huge congratulations to Darren Clarke who today finally clinched his first major title, lifting the Claret Jug to become the British Open Champion.

His win heralded another fantastic day for Northern Irish Golf with Darren’s victory ensuring back to back Major wins for Northern Ireland after Rory McILroy’s triumph at the US Open. With Graeme McDowell preceding McIlroy as US Open Champion last year it means that 3 of the last 6 Majors have been won by golfers from Northern Ireland….we really couldn’t be prouder!!

So as the media spotlight becomes firmly focused on our lovely part of the world, there really is no better time to experience the place Darren, Rory & Graeme call home, and Galgorm is the perfect base from which to explore some truly outstanding Northern Irish golf courses.
