    The Irish Open is the marquee golf event that takes place on the island of Ireland each year. First played in 1927, this top tournament on the European Tour has been hosted at great courses such as Royal County Down, Ballybunion, and Portmarnock.

    This year, the action returns to the spectacular surroundings of The K Club in County Kildare. Get ready for the Horizon Irish Open 2023!

    The K Club is calling

    The Horizon Irish Open 2023 takes place at The K Club in County Kildare, a 5-star resort nestled in Ireland’s Ancient East, but also conveniently only 30 minutes away from Dublin city.

    It comes complete with a country club, spa and rejuvenating spa treatments, swimming pool, several bars and restaurants, including an afternoon tea hosted in its luxurious drawing room, and not one but two Arnold Palmer-designed golf courses.

    If the epic 2006 Ryder Cup – which was also hosted here – is anything to go by, it'll be a golfing extravaganza not to be missed.

    If you can’t make it this year, but have fallen in love with The K Club, don’t worry! This venue will be part of the DP World Tour schedule for a long time to come, as the Irish Open will be hosted here again in 2025 and 2027. It will also play host to another championship, the Challenge Tour’s Irish Challenge in 2024 and 2026.

    Fun in the Thoroughbred County

    County Kildare isn’t just a great place to play golf, and there’s plenty to see and do while you stay here. Locals know County Kildare as the “Thoroughbred County” because it’s the centre for breeding and training of horses in Ireland. This is none better exemplified than at The Irish National Stud which was founded in 1900 by Colonel William Hall Walker.

    If it’s history you’re after, try Castletown House, a country house built in the 18th century for William Connolly. When he died, Conolly was one of the richest men on the island and owned a staggering 100,000 acres of land.

    Or, you’re looking to get your heart racing, why not try a boat tour along the Grand Canal, or if you prefer dry land, take to your two wheels and cycle along the Royal Canal Greenway, which starts just outside of Dublin city and ends in County Longford!

    A golfing heritage

    Perusing the list of past winners reads like a who’s who of golfing legends. Since George Duncan's win at the inaugural event at Portmarnock back in 1927, greats such as Seve Ballesteros, José María Olazábal, Ian Woosnam, Nick Faldo, Bernhard Langer, Sergio García, Sam Torrance, Colin Montgomerie, Pádraig Harrington and Shane Lowry have all lifted the coveted trophy.

    Who do you think will be lifting the trophy this year?

    Tee off on the Irish Open

    So, the land golfers call the "green of dreams" is calling! A famously warm welcome awaits and the craic (fun) will continue from the clubhouse to the greens to the legendary 19th hole. Consider this your Irish Open invitation. We'll see you on the fairways...
