Tourism NI has released a video celebrating some of the best of golf in Northern Ireland


Tourism NI has released a video celebrating some of the best of golf in Northern Ireland, narrated by James Nesbitt OBE.

The video celebrates the world class golf courses and golfing heroes of Northern Ireland as well as the tournaments hosted down the years from The Open in 1951, The Irish Open, Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, the ISPS Handa World Invitational 2019 and The 148th Open at Royal Portrush.

James Nesbitt OBE commented;

“I am delighted to be involved in Tourism NI’s latest golf video which highlights Northern Ireland’s golfing achievements. Our passion and love for golf is one of the many reasons why people over the years have come to Northern Ireland to explore our beautiful landscapes, parkland courses and truly remarkable links. This past year has been exceptionally difficult, especially for the industry therefore it’s great to see our golf courses reopen and players back on the course.”
