The winner will receive an invitation to play in the 2018 Northern Ireland Open (subject to criteria). This year’s NI Open takes place at Galgorm Castle from August 16-19 and will be one of the standout events on the European Challenge Tour.
As well as the NI Open invitation for the winner, prize vouchers will be issued for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places, the overall nett winner, plus the best gross and nett scores for rounds 1 and 2.
The winner will join an illustrious list of champions in this the ninth year of the NI Amateur Open.
