Leona Maguire will participate in Horizon Irish Open Pro-Am for the first time when the fun-filled curtain-raiser for the island of Ireland’s national open tees off at Mount Juliet Estate next month.
In April, Maguire became the first Irish woman to win an LPGA Tour title, winning the LPGA Drive-On Championship by three strokes.
She will join fellow Irish golfers Shane Lowry, Pádraig Harrington, and Séamus Power on the pristine fairways of the Kilkenny venue as well as many other celebrities from sports and entertainment.
John O’Shea, former Ireland and Manchester United footballer, Spencer Matthews, James Nesbitt, Rob Kearney, Olympian Greg O’Shea, and popular Today FM broadcaster Dermot Whelan are among those included.
The celebrities will all take to the course at Mount Juliet Estate on Wednesday 29th June as they participate in this year’s Horizon Irish Open Pro-Am, the traditional curtain-raiser for the main event.
The historic tournament takes place at Mount Juliet Estate for the second time, but for the first time with full capacity crowds, from June 30 to July 3.
