US Kids Golf North of Ireland Local Tour Launched
For the first time Ireland will have its own US Kids Local Tour The North of Ireland Local Tour. The tour comprises 6 events for boys and girls from 5 to 14 years of age. The North of Ireland Local Tour will have its own Order of Merit and a special Local Tour Championship event as a finale.
Tour Director Zoe Allen is excited about bringing US Kids Events to Ireland.
Following the success of the US Kids Learning Programme at Lurgan Golf Club, I am delighted to establish the first US Kids Local Tour in Ireland. The young Golfers will enjoy every minute of taking part in the US Kids North of Ireland Local Tour events. I have helped organise a number of US Kids events in USA at a Local and State level and worked at the European and World Championships. US Kids Tournaments take Junior Golf events to a new level both for players and parents. I'm sure parents and kids will be excited, not only with the events, but by taking part in the only Irish Local Tour there is the possibility of qualifying for the US Kids European Championships and World Championships. I would like to thank all the Golf Clubs who have agreed to support the North of Ireland Local Tour their support recognises the benefits of supporting Junior Golf.
