THE largest event in this year's PGA calendar, the Walled City of Derry Pro Am tournament, is set to take place in Derry City on August 26 and August 27 2017.
For the first time ever, the two courses, City of Derry Golf Club and Foyle International Golf Centre, will be getting in on the action on both days.
This will provide a larger number of competitors with the opportunity to put their skills to the test while also promoting the local offering to a wide range of visitors.
Launching the Walled City Pro-Am golf tournament, Ordhan Dunne, General Manager, Visit Derry said: "Ireland's North West region is currently at the forefront of golf tourism on the island and whilst this tournament will be an excellent opportunity to promote the quality of the city's parkland golf, it will further enhance our reputation as a central hub for golfers to enjoy a premier golf and tourism experience."
Visit Derry, in partnership with Derry City and Strabane Council, are sponsoring the tournament which will be one of the top attractions in the North West social and sporting calendar this summer.
In 2013, Derry-Londonderry was awarded City of Culture status and enjoyed a change of attitude, a new pride in cultural identity and an acceptance not so evident before.
