The #SMOpen came about through various conversations between like minded individuals, fanatical golfers! Soon it was decided a tournament should be put together to get everybody together off-line and on the golf course. The Social Media Open was born!
From what was envisioned to be a small event with possibly 16 golfers, 20 teams (40 golfers) teed it up from Wednesday 10th April to Sunday 14th April 2013. Starting at Mount Juliet, the teams then moved onto Castlemartyr, Adare and Old Head while taking in a “rest day” on the Saturday! A great week was had by all and when all was said and done the lads from Tyrone, Kevin Connolly & Declan Devine were the Inaugural Social Media Open Champions!
On the back of a hugely successful Inaugural Tournament in April of 2013 during Masters week in Ireland, the Social Media Open returns to these golfing shores in April of 2014 for its 2nd Annual Tournament. With over 50 golfers already down to play next year it promises to be a great event once more and very competitive one. Playing in during Masters week as well means playing golf by day and watching the finest golfers in the World battle it out at Augusta by night, with maybe a few social drinks to accompany the evening’s festivities!
There are a couple of changes for the 2014 Tournament, Doonbeg replaces Mount Juliet as the venue for Day 1 on Wednesday 9th April while Adare swaps with Castlemartyr as the Limerick course will now stage the 2nd Round while the Cork venue hosts Round 3. As expected, the Old Head Golf Links provides the crescendo with the Final Round being played there on Sunday 13th April 2014.
The Prize Presentation will take place after golf in the Old Head Clubhouse, 1st Prize being a Custom Fit Driver for each member of the winning team from Fore Golf, the opportunity to defend your Title in 2015 with Free Golf for all tournament rounds and of course you also get The Grace Murphy Trophy to take home for the year as well! Other prizes include PING wedges; Golf Breaks to Killarney and Kilkenny; Golf vouchers for Old Head, Doonbeg, Adare, Castlemartyr, City West and Tulfarris; Swingbyte 2.0 units, Metro Golf Dublin Vouchers, Royal & Awesome pants & hats and MyCoverPics covers!!
