Mount Wolseley added to stellar schedule

February 26th, 2014

The PGA EuroPro Tour has added Mount Wolseley Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort in County Carlow to its schedule, the second Irish venue to be included in the Tour’s impressive 2014 line-up.

The Christy O’Connor designed course boasts rich surrounds, mature trees and playing surfaces unrivalled for their consistency and quality and will host Europe’s leading satellite tour from July 30 until August 1.

The 54-hole event follows straight on from the tournament at Concra Wood in Castleblayney and will be filmed for a two hour highlights programme to be broadcast on Sky Sports. The tournament will see some of Europe’s best young professionals competing for the £10,000 winner’s cheque and their share of a total prize fund of £40,000.

Daniel Godding, PGA EuroPro Tour Director of Operations said: “Mount Wolseley is a stunning course and is in a great location with its mountainous backdrop.

“Historically the PGA EuroPro Tour has always enjoyed great public support in Ireland and I am thrilled to give Irish golf fans another opportunity to see some of Europe’s best young pros compete on a top-class course in front of the Sky Sports cameras.”

Lisa Morrissey, Director at Mount Wolseley Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort said: “We are delighted to be hosting such a prestigious event here at Mount Wolseley and to have such calibre of golfers descending on County Carlow in July. Our championship golf course will challenge the professionals on every aspect of their game, so it will be a great tournament to watch.”

Broadcast on Sky Sports HD and TV networks around the world, the PGA EuroPro Tour is the UK and Ireland’s leading golf tour and is where many top golfers begin their professional careers.

The Tour comprises 17 tournaments at some of the UK and Ireland’s very best courses, including the Belfry (Brabazon course), The Oxfordshire and Prince’s. Players play for a total prize fund of over £700,000 each year and at the end of the season the top five on the Order of Merit graduate to the Challenge Tour.

The PGA EuroPro Tour has received a record number of Q School entries for this time of year, and the first stage event at Woldingham Golf Club is now full, with limited spaces available at Formby Hall and Players Club.
