A field of more than 100 golfers aged 12 to 21 will compete in the Faldo Series Ireland Championship over two rounds on the Faldo Course. Other notable competitors include 19-year-old Ireland squad member Ted Collins (Dun Laoghaire) and Paddy Culhane (Galway GC), both have previously appeared at Grand Finals.
“The Ireland Championship at Lough Erne provides a thorough test on a great course against very good young players.” commented Sir Nick Faldo.
“We thank Lough Erne for their continued support for the Faldo Series and we’re pleased the event gets stronger each year even after nine editions.”
“The Ireland Championship at Lough Erne is an incredibly attractive event for talented young golfers from all across the island.” commented Lynn McCool, Director of Golf at Lough Erne.
“To be hosting our ninth edition in the Faldo Series 20th year is a great way for us to support the on-going efforts of Sir Nick’s vision. We have another great field next week and we hope that the players will enjoy the test that Lough Erne will provide them.”
Competitors will be divided into five age categories, three for boys and two for girls, with the winner of each category qualifying for the 20th European Grand Final, a World Amateur Golf Ranking event
Recognised as the only global amateur series for boys and girls, the Faldo Series was established in 1996, expanding to Asia in 2006.
Today, 40 Faldo Series tournaments take place in 30-plus countries worldwide, touching thousands of golfers each year. Past winners include Major Champions Tseng Ya-ni and Rory McIlroy, who took his tally of professional Major titles to four with his wins at the 2014 Open Championship and US PGA Championship.
