The Carr Golf Links Pro-Am will return from the 19th – 22nd October taking PGA Professionals and their amateur teams to some of the greatest links golf courses in the world.
Up to 20 international teams will have the opportunity to compete over four rounds at courses in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, including this year’s Irish Open venue, Royal Country Down, former Irish Open and Walker Cup venue, Portmarnock Golf Club, as well as future Open Championship venue, Royal Portrush.
