Added bonus for winner

The 36-hole strokeplay event will be hosted by Galgorm Castle Golf Club on Tuesday 9th June 2015. An added attraction for amateur golfers is the winner’s invitation to play in the prestigious Northern Ireland Open which takes place in August. Pictured at the launch were (from left) Keith Dinsmore, Galgorm Castle Golf Club Captain, Jordan Hood, Irish Golf International and Steven Penney, Specsavers.

Six years of support

Valerie Penney, store director, Ballymena Specsavers, said: ‘We have supported this annual strokeplay competition since 2009. It’s a fantastic tournament in its own right always attracting a full field of 60 competitors. The bonus of being able to win the opportunity to play in the European Challenge Tour event at Galgorm in August is an amateur’s dream and gives this strokeplay competition a real edge.’
