PREM Group PGA EuroPro Tour Irish Masters

We host a huge number of events here every year, from corporate & team building days out, to charity and fundraising, we can cater to any requirements. One of the biggest and best events this year was the 2018 EuroPro Tour Irish Masters, sponsored by PREM Group which took place over three consecutive days, 29-31st August. The event was televised by Sky Sports and we were delighted to play host to this excellent event while showcasing the beauty and quality of our course to over 400m people around the world. The EuroPro Tour is set to take place at Tulfarris Hotel and Golf Resort for 2018, 2019 and 2020.

The conditions were ideal for this fantastic tournament which was hosted by our own Golf Tournament Professional, Simon Thornton. Simon started his golfing career in Royal County Down as an Assistant Club Professional and has gone from strength to strength culminating in his first European Tour win at the Najeti Hotels et Golfs Open in France. In late 2017, Simon joined our golf team as Tulfarris’ Tournament Professional. Since then, Simon has organised and hosted multiple pro-ams, catered for group clinics and charity events and is a regular on the Irish PGA circuit.

The Irish Masters weekend ended with a well-deserved win from English golfer, Mark Young. Mark emerged victorious after a thrilling three-way playoff on the Friday against Ashley Mansell (Clevedon Golf Club) and Tomasz Anderson (Centurion Golf Club). After an exciting afternoon of record-breaking golf from many players, including a new course record, Mark Young took home first place prize of £10,000. Speaking after his win, Mark expressed his delight at winning such a prestigious award and complimented the ‘phenomenal condition of the grounds’.

We look forward to the next two years of hosting this fantastic tournament which gives many young male golfers a chance to compete on a European level and hopefully progress on to the highest level of world golf in the coming years.
