Moyvalley Hotel & Golf Resort, situated on the breathtaking Balyna Estate in County Kildare, takes over the staging of the Challenge of Ireland following two successful years at Glasson Golf Hotel & Country Club, which itself succeeded Killarney Golf and Fishing Club in 2007.
The 7,370 yards, par 72 course will present the Challenge Tour Members with a stern examination, according to the club’s owner Stuart Jackson.
He said: “We are honoured to be chosen to stage the Challenge of Ireland presented by Moyvalley, which we hope will attract a quality field of some of the game’s brightest young talents. We are extremely proud of the course we have created in partnership with Darren Clarke, and I’m confident it will provide a fitting stage and become a popular venue on the Challenge Tour for many years to come.”
