Carlsberg Launches North of Ireland Amateur
Open Golf Championships


Today Carlsberg announced its sponsorship of the Carlsberg North of Ireland Golf Championship for the 6th year. 

Northern Ireland’s leading amateur golf event ‘The Carlsberg North’ has become a highlight of the sporting calendar in Ulster and has become a breading ground for some of Ireland’s best international golfers. 

The competition held between the 10th and 14th of July will see 300 top amateur golfers battle it out at Royal Portrush Golf Club’s world famous Dunluce course, including players from Scotland, Wales, South Africa and the Irish Republic. 

Colm McGarrigle, Carlsberg Marketing Manager said:“Carlsberg are delighted to be involved with the North of Ireland Amateur Open Golf Championships for another year.  Carlsberg as the province’s leading continental lager has a cosmopolitan edge that sits well with the championship.  The ‘Carlsberg North’ is the highlight of amateur golf in the province and as it has for many years, Carlsberg’s presence will be felt both on the course and at surrounding venues.”

 Lindsay Shanks, Chairman of the Golfing Union of Ireland, Ulster Branch said:

“Once again we are privileged to have such a talented field at this year’s ‘Carlsberg North’.  When you consider how far Darren Clarke has come since winning the event in 1990, it is perfect inspiration for our top amateurs.  We fully expect this years competition to be most enjoyable whether we are watching the golf or talking about it with a pint of Carlsberg.”
