DROMOLAND CASTLE is to host the KPMG Women’s Irish Open again in 2023.

As previously reported by The Clare Echo, Dromoland could be the home of the Ladies European Tour event for a three year stint.

Tournament organisers on Wednesday confirmed a new date for 2023, seeing it start three weeks earlier than this year and also officially announced Dromoland Castle as the host, once again.

With a €400,000 prize fund, the women’s event will begin an exciting two weeks of professional golf in Ireland with the Men’s Irish Open taking place in The K Club the following week.

More than 24,000 people attended the event across the three days in Newmarket-on-Fergus which was a record for a women’s golf event in Ireland.

This year’s event was won by Klara Spilková from the Czech Republic, claiming her first LET Tour victory in over five years, overcoming Ursula Wikström and Nicole Broch Estrup in a dramatic playoff.

Having come agonisingly close to securing a spot in that playoff, Irish golfer and KPMG ambassador, Maguire will once again tee it up at Dromoland Castle as she seeks to become the first Irish winner of the event.

Speaking about today’s announcement Cian Branagan, CEO and Founder of Forefront Sports said, “We are delighted to announce the new date for the KPMG Women’s Irish Open in 2023. It is our hope that this new position on the LET schedule will kick off a festival of golf for Irish golf fans as the summer of 2023 comes to a close. The tournament proved to be a brilliant success in 2022 with a record number of people attending the event in Dromoland Castle and we are delighted to be returning to this world-class venue in 2023”.

Mark Nolan, Managing Director at Dromoland Castle stated, “We are all thrilled that yet again Dromoland Castle will host the Women’s Irish Open August 2023, consolidating our position as the home of the KPMG Women’s Irish Open, of which we are all truly proud”.
