A former Ryder Cup Captain at the heart of the action
The tournament will feature some of golfs ‘Legends’ including 1999 Open Championship winner Paul Lawrie, Legends Tour 2021 Order of Merit Number One Stephen Dodd and the host and former European Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley.
McGinley who hosted his first Irish Legends tournament in 2021, which saw Thomas Bjørn secure his maiden Legends Tour victory is hosting the event in a place which is close to his heart, in Co. Donegal, where he spent many happy years as a child.
McGinley explained in 2021, “My mum and dad are from here, just across the way in Dunfanaghy, for my dad, and my mum from Rathmullan, so I spent all my summers here as a kid, had a great childhood growing up here,” McGinley said. “I know this place intimately very well and it’s a place and part of Ireland that’s not really been as illuminated as we’d like it to be.”
The Old Tom Morris Links
Old Tom Morris of St. Andrews was a winner of four Open Championships in the 1860’s, and took a visit to explore the Donegal countryside, quick to realise the golfing potential in the area. The coastline stretches for miles, and Old Tom Morris decided to incorporate a links course now known as The Old Tom Morris Links at Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Resort.
Featuring wide rolling fairways amidst the undulating terrain and wonderful well-manicured greens that feature throughout the course, giving the players a fantastic experience of a true links course with many challenges.
The Wild Atlantic Way
Ireland was named Europe’s Best Golf Destination 2020 at the World Golf Awards and it is easy to see why when you visit Donegal. Often referred as the links capital of Ireland, Donegal is a golfer’s dream which has been enchanting golfers for years. This great county encapsulates everything that is magical about the Wild Atlantic Way.
