ABOUT THE Irish Seniors Amateur Open

First played for in 1970 when the legendary Cecil Ewing (Co Sligo) won the title at Lahinch, this event has grown in strength and popularity since then. The Championship has proven to be a breeding ground for the Irish Seniors Home International Team and the European Seniors Team, as the recent list of winners proves.

This Championship attracts a quality entry from overseas, and no fewer than seven winners have come from outside of Ireland. Competitive entry process, but a handicap of 2.5-3.0 should get you in this 54 hole stroke play event.
