The Open Championship 2019, at Portrush
Royal Portrush is to play host to The Open Championship from the 18th to the 21st
of July 2019. This is the first Open Championship to be held in Northern Ireland
in 67 years and promises to be another occasion to remember.
Over the Championship’s 148-year history, The Open has only once been played
outside of England and Scotland. In 1951, Royal Portrush also had the honour of
hosting the event, where the infamous Claret Jug was raised by Max Faulkner.
This long awaited return to Northern Irish soil means golf enthusiasts from both
Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland can enjoy all that the Open has to
offer without having to travel too far a field.
