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 Garcia, Sam Torrance, Colin Montgomerie, Padraig Harrington and Shane Lowry have all lifted the coveted trophy.
Amongst some of the most breathtaking and challenging courses in the world, you’ll find an extraordinary welcome both on and off the fairways. Add to that a rich tradition of producing some of the finest talent in the game’s history, it’s no wonder this leafy land is often referred to as the ‘green of dreams’.
