Galgorm Castle Golf Club has been awarded the “2014 IGTOA Parkland Golf Course of the Year” in recognition of the Ballymena venue’s consistent “high standards and quality of course” and the key role it plays in promoting Irish golf tourism to an international audience.
Representatives from Galgorm received the prestigious award at the Ireland Golf Tour Operator Association (IGTOA) awards ceremony held at the Knockranny House Hotel in Westport.
“We are delighted to receive this wonderful award,” said Gary Henry, Managing Director, Galgorm Castle Golf Club & Estates.
“For a number of years we have continued to invest in what we believe is one of Ireland’s finest destinations here at Galgorm.
“This year we hosted the second Northern Ireland Open, which set new attendance records on the European Challenge Tour with almost 35,000 spectators witnessing Sweden’s Joakim Lagergren’s dramatic win,” added Gary.
Galgorm’s proactive approach continues beyond the fairways with the second phase of The Courtyard Business Park at the estate’s castle underway as part of an £8million investment programme, while the Creative Gardens Centre is already a great success.
In 2015 work will complete on the new Himalayas putting green and six-hole pitch and putt course to further enhance Galgorm as a destination for all the family.
