The Irish Ladies Golf Union have confirmed their calendar of events for 2019. 

From a National perspective, the first underage championship again will be the Irish Girls’ Open Stroke Play Championship at Roganstown in April (5th – 7th).

As the summer months approach, the Irish Women’s Open Stroke Play again returns to Co. Louth where an International field will compete for the Clarrie Reddan and Philomena Garvey Trophy. Scottish International Hannah McCook claimed honours at the Baltray links in 2018 and has since turned Professional. 

The 2018 Silver and Bronze Medallists will compete in the National Final at Headfort in mid-May while across the country, hopes of Senior Cup success will begin as District qualifiers are played at Ballinasloe, Dun Laoghaire, Courtown, Thurles and North West. 

Returning to the east coast for the first time since 2012, the Irish Women’s Close Championship will be hosted by Woodbrook Golf Club in June. In July, arguably the busiest month of the calendar, Naas will host the Irish Senior Women’s Close Championship (2nd – 5th) and Galway is the venue for the Irish Girls’ Close Championship (16th – 19th). Ulster and Leinster will defend their Women’s and Girls’ Interprovincial titles at Mount Wolseley from July 9th to 11th and the Irish Senior Women’s Open Stroke Play Championship will travel to Carlow from September 11th – 13th.

Mid - summer promises excitement as the Ladies British Open Amateur Championship is hosted at Royal County Down following the successful staging of the Girls’ British Amateur Championship at Arglass in 2018.

From an inter-club perspective, Killarney will welcome the Senior Cup All-Ireland Finals alongside the Final of the Girls’ Inter-Club. The Australian Spoons National Final takes place at Portarlington on Monday 26th August. The AIG Ladies Cups and Shields National Finals returns to Knightsbrook Hotel and Golf Resort (September 25th – 28th) while the Revive Active Fourball National Finals will be contested at Athenry on the 5th and 6th of October. 

In a new endeavour last year, the Connacht Play and Stay will again be hosted at Glasson on the 3rd of September. A networking event for current and past Lady Captains, this event will include golf, dinner and a night’s stay at the midland resort. To further highlight the option of shorter forms of the game, the Nine-Hole events will continue with four Regional Finalists qualifying to compete at R&A Nine-Hole Championship final at Royal Portrush.

All ILGU events are now open for entry via the TOURNAMENT ENTRY page.
