2012 – Irish Open

Jeff Howes Golf Design are delighted with the news that The 2012 Irish Open is to be held at Royal Portrush Golf Club in Northern Ireland.

It is great to see this European Tour event return to a “Links” course for which Ireland is known the world over for!

Credit is due to all involved particularly all the Irish players on tour who supported the move north.

Cannot wait to see this classic Colt course on TV – we hope the R&A strive to acheive the 2006 Royal Liverpool (Hoylake) appearance – Brown being the new Green!
