Northern Ireland Open Challenge 2014

28 August - 31 August
The stars of the fairways will make a welcome return to Ballymena this year after the official announcement that the Northern Ireland Open, the province’s annual international tournament, will take place once more at Galgorm Castle from August 28-31. After record numbers attended last year’s event, this year promises to be a spectacular occasion for all the family with a designated food village in the grounds of the estate castle plus an interactive golf village behind the 18th.

Even better news is entry to the Challenge Tour event and all the activities are free. All you have to do is visit and register to receive your free tickets and be part of Northern Ireland’s very own professional golf tournament.

Organisers have introduced a ’Food Festival’ to the 2014 NI Open to ‘savour the culinary delights of the region’. The gourmet excellence theme will carry through to tournament week where suppliers, exhibitors and live demonstrations will showcase the very best of NI produce within the designated food village at the castle.

The golf village will be another interactive spectacle for all the family with free golf lessons for the kids and sporting challenges for the ‘big kids’ too. Leading golf retailers and event partners will be present in the golf village with great deals, promotions and competitions throughout the week.

Before the week-long festival of food and golf, the game’s elite amateurs will get another chance to tee it up with the professionals through the annual North of Ireland Strokeplay. The 36-hole event will take place over the championship parkland on Tuesday, 24th June.
