In today's Podcast we are teeing up the first of a new series looking at The Business of Golf.
With long term deals in place for the Horizon Irish Open and the KPMG Women’s Irish Open, professional golf in this country is in a good place.
That’s backed up by the Open Championship’s return to Royal Portrush in 2025, the Walker cup coming to Lahinch in 2026 and then the big one, the Ryder Cup landing in Adare Manor in 2027.
With golf tourism delivering real value for the economy and golf clubs delivering the sport to an ever bigger and ever younger audience, there is no better time to be diving deeper into the sport.
We are able to do so through the great support of our partners KPMG, Golf Ireland and Forefront Sports and you can find out more over the coming months on what we have planned for the Business of Golf as part of Sport for Business.
Today’s guest is Paul Heery, the General Manager at the K Club and a man steeped in the very finest traditions of top level golf.
Having served his time with Adare Manor in Limerick and the Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland he knows a thing or three about the sport and is a great person with whom to kick off this new series.
