Irish Open 2012

Just ahead of any official announcement it seems very likely the Irish Open this year will be held at Royal Portrush Golf Club :smiley:

Like Ballybunion a few years ago, RPGC will need at least a little wind for protection and some of the holes will be dominated by the pros but there are plenty of holes where accuracy will be more important than length and a host of holes where shot making skills are a requisite.

It’s great for the club and the area that it is coming and if successful could lead to The Open coming back in the next few years!

Fantastic. The word on the street that I’d heard was that it was going to be Carton House, which nobody liked. Portrush is, in my opinion, the best course in Ireland.
