Rory McIlroy Competition

Ladies compete in the Rory McIlroy this Thursday 7th April and the winner will go to Rockmount with the men’s club winner for this most exciting opportunity. Rockmount Golf Club will play host to the first qualifying event for this year’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Club Challenge. More than 160 golf clubs across Ireland are competing with the chance to play alongside international golf superstars and world famous celebrities in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Pro–Am at stake. Forty teams will compete at Rockmount on Monday, April 11, with just five going on to a place in the finals. The theme for this year’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, hosted by the Rory Foundation at The K Club (May 19-22) is ‘History in the Making’ and that will certainly be the case on May 18 when, for the first time ever, one lucky club team lines up to play alongside a top golfer in the prestigious Pro-Am competition.

The European Tour and Irish Open title-sponsor Dubai Duty Free, which has kindly donated one of its own Pro-Am team spaces for the competition, has revealed the all important details of the venues and dates for the five ‘Club Challenge’ regional qualifiers as well as the names of the 166 clubs who will be represented.

The qualifiers will all take place between Monday, April 11, and Monday, April 25, at five of Ireland’s top golf courses. So exciting!
