Event Info

The Northern Ireland Open, Northern Ireland’s annual national professional tournament returns to Galgorm Castle, Ballymena from Thursday 10th – Sunday 13th August 2017. The NI Open is not just a golf event, rather a Golf Tournament for all the Family!

In 2015 & 2016 over 39,000 visitors flocked to the event.

A brand new format and a tournament full of innovation is certain to make the 2017 Northern Ireland Open, presented by Modest! Golf, one of the most talked about events in world golf this year and a must visit for golf fans across the UK and Ireland.

Now in its fifth year, the NI Open is one of the best supported events on the European Challenge Tour’s international schedule, both with record attendances and depth of field. And now in 2017, the NI Open has embraced the European Tour’s vision of introducing fresh new ideas and innovation to professional golf with the introduction of Shootout Sunday.

156 players will tee it up ahead of the traditional 36-hole cut, before a 54-hole cut for the top 24 players followed by five rounds of six-hole strokeplay matches in what will be a high octane and dramatic Shootout Sunday.

The NI Open is part of the European Challenge Tour’s international schedule, the second tier of men’s professional golf in Europe and the final stepping-stone to the ‘big time’ of world golf. The NI Open attracts a strong contingent of Irish European Tour players such as Michael Hoey and Gareth Maybin, rising European Challenge Tour stars Chris Selfridge, Cormac Sharvin and Ruaidhri McGee,plus rookie professionals Gavin Moynihan, Gary Hurley and Ballymena’s very own Dermot McElroy, plus a host of former European Tour winners and Ryder Cup players.

The NI Open is not just a golf event, rather a Golf Tournament for all the Family!

The NI Open Food Festival showcases the best of local produce and forms part of the NI Open Village which also includes a wide range of Exhibitors, Live Music, the Village Bar and the Tournament Scoreboard.

The Interactive Zone offers something for all the family with FREE golf lessons for all and the opportunity to try your hand at Pitch & Putt on Galgorm Castle’s Fun Golf Area. For the young ones, the Kids Fun Area provides plenty of activities to keep everyone happy. Stay tuned for exciting news as 2017 progresses. The event is FREE to enter, simply register for your tickets HERE
