Measuring 7,150 yards from its championship tees, Seapoint Golf Links sets a challenging test for all golfers. However, with up to five tee boxes on every hole, the course can be meaningfully adjusted to suit the conditions. The wind will inevitability play its part on a links golf course as each hole will challenge the players hitting into the wind, downwind and battling cross winds.
Welshman Phillip Price secured his third Legends Tour title in difficult conditions at last year’s Irish Legends hosted by McGinley Foundation at Rosapenna Hotel & Golf Resort, over on the west coast of Ireland.
“I loved the course,” Price said. “I was disappointed in 2021, not winning, because I led going into the last day, Thomas (Bjorn) played great shooting a 66, a worthy champion, but I probably felt like I deserved that one.”
We asked the defending champion how his year is taking shape so far.
“It’s been a slow start to the season, but I saw some improvement in Jersey last time out with a T6 finish.” Price said.
“I’m looking forward to playing another great Irish links course. I’m excited to try and defend my Irish Legends title!”
With the recent dry conditions across the UK, we asked Price what the key would be to going low around Seapoint Golf Links.
“With the weather looking milder than last year, there should be more chance of attacking the course. Its best defence would be dry conditions which will make it difficult to control the ball on the greens.”
Price was part of Europe’s winning Ryder Cup team in 2002 and he’ll be teeing it up alongside other Ryder Cup legends, Ian Woosnam & Paul Lawrie. Plus 2005 US Open champion, Michael Campbell. A field of 60 professionals will battle it out to become the 2023 Irish Legends champion.
Joining the professional field before tournament play gets underway will be a host of stars from sport, TV and entertainment for the wapp Celebrity Series. Stars such as James Nesbitt, Daniel O’Donnell and Sir Andrew Strauss will all be competing for their chosen charities and a spot in the Grand Final where they will play for a £100,000 charity prize pot!
