The global media coverage of the ISPS World Invitational really helps put us on the map as a tourist destination, which allows us to market our fantastic parkland courses to a global audience.

“It showcases all that our borough has to offer for golfing fans and international visitors bringing with it considerable economic benefits of around £1.3 million to our tourism, hospitality, retail and transport industries.

“I wish to extend a warm welcome to all the competitors, officials and visitors involved in this year’s incredible sporting showpiece. I would like to thank the organisers at Galgorm Spa & Golf Resort and our partner sponsors for their sustained efforts in bringing this event together and for their continued belief in Mid and East Antrim as a top-class location for international events.”
