The Irish Women's Close Championship, the most prestigious event in the domestic Irish calendar, this year travels to the Midlands where Mullingar Golf Club will host Ireland's Elite.

After 36 holes qualifying, the top flight of 32 will battle to become Irish Close Champion and add their name to an illustrious list that includes Philomena Garvey, Mary McKenna, Leona Maguire and most recently, Olivia Mehaffey. 

There is an extra incentive this year as the event will be used, alongside the Leinster Girls' Championship, as a qualifier for the English U16's Open Stroke Play Championship, in which 6 Irish players will travel to Blackmoor Golf Club, south east of London. 

Additionally the Interprovincial Players to earn representative honors at this years Interprovincial Matches at Shannon Golf Club will be announced on the Monday following the event at Mullingar. 

The closing date for entres into the Irish Close Championship is Thursday 1st June, entries can be made on the Tournament Page HERE
