Irish Open Tournament heads to County Kilkenny

For the second straight year the Irish Open will take place at Mount Juliet In County Kilkenny. Local favorites Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry and Graeme McDowell all played in the 2021 competition, which was won by Australian Lucas Herbert.
   The tournament will take place on the Jack Nicklaus-designed signature parkland course, set across 180 acres of rolling Irish countryside, completed by a stunning five-star Georgian manor house. Magnificent specimen trees, miles of rushing river and verdant pastures all play their part, bringing sensational natural beauty to a course that is ranked among the world’s finest parkland courses.
   The venue was also recently voted Ireland’s Best Parkland Golf Course by the Golfer’s Guide to Ireland.

   Mount Juliet is situated in Thomastown, between Kilkenny and Waterford, both treasure troves of Irish history, while in the northern part of the region, the highly regarded links of County Louth Golf Club, known as ‘Baltray’, is a short drive from the megalithic sites at Newgrange and Knowth.
