Around 22 teams from golf clubs across Ireland will do battle this Monday on the Smurfit Course at The K Club in the final of this year’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Club Challenge - with a chance to play alongside international golf superstars and world famous celebrities in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Pro–Am at stake.

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 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 qualifying events took place at five of Ireland’s top golf courses, including Powerscourt GC in County Wicklow, Hollystown GC in Dublin, Rockmount GC in Belfast, Dooks GC in County Kerry and Galway Bay Golf Club, all of whom donated their excellent facilities in support of this year’s Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.
