This wonderful endorsement presents Tourism Ireland with another invaluable opportunity to showcase Northern Ireland to golfers and prospective visitors around the world. We will be pulling out all the stops – in Great Britain, the US and in other important golf markets – to capitalise on the potential of this wonderful news. Not only do we have some of the best golfers in the world, we also have some of the best courses in the world too!”
