Pro-am day was a great way to start tournament week at the Galgorm Resort & Spa Northern Ireland Open, presented by Modest! Golf at Galgorm Castle.

The sun shone and the stars were out on show with plenty for spectators to see. The timesheet read like a who’s who of the Northern Ireland sporting and entertainment world as teams of amateurs alongside their professionals competed for the Pro-am prize.

Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill was in action alongside the likes of Willy Clingan and David Healy. The rugby world was catered for too with Ulster legends Rory Best and Stephen Ferris having the banter with the galleries. (There was some debate about who hits the ball further!)

Athletics sensation Michael McKillop was also playing, as was snooker’s Mark Allen plus a host of other names.

Great day out for all the family and always a good way to watch the celebrities up close.
