Arena Events Group plc is once again proud to be an official sponsor of the Challenge Tour’s Irish Challenge event, to be held at the prestigious Mount Wolseley Hotel, Spa and Golf Resort in County Carlow, 14th-17th September 2017.

The tournament returns to Mount Wolseley for the third time and will see some of Ireland’s best young golfers take up the challenge of climbing through the paid ranks.

Featuring 27 tournaments in 21 different countries, the European Challenge Tour offers European Tour cards for the top 15 players at the end of the season.

Greg Lawless, Arena Group CEO, commented:

“As a company, we have been privileged to work at many prestigious golfing events already this year including the US Open at Erin Hills, The Open at Royal Birkdale, The Scottish Open at Dundonald, the Ricoh Women’s Open at Kingsbarns and the US PGA Championships at Quail Hollow.

“We are delighted to be able to support the grass roots of the sport at events like the Irish Challenge which offers players a chance to progress their golfing career. Good luck to all those competing and we look forward to seeing them one day playing on the European Tour circuit.”

Arena Group have a keen interest in this year’s event as our ambassador Gavin Moynihan and compatriots Ruaidhri Mcgee, Gary Hurley, Cormac Sharvin and Kevin Phelan are all flying the flag for Ireland in this year’s Challenge Tour and will be out to earn vital ranking points in September at Mount Wolseley.
