Where next for the Irish Open?

Trump plans “even bigger project” for Doonbeg

A European Tour spokesman has confirmed that Lough Erne Resort will host the Irish Open as planned in 2017. With Donald Trump back in the news cycle following the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Trump National Doral last week, speculation had grown that Lough Erne could be moved from its 2017 slot in favour of an early visit to Trump International Golf Links & Hotel, Ireland, aka, Doonbeg. Not true, it appears. ”It’s as per the venue announcement in May 2014,” the European Tour responded. “Royal County Down for 2015 and then Lough Erne in 2017.”

County Louth, which is convenient for many Northern Ireland based fans, has been mentioned as a potential 2016 venue as have Mount Juliet, The Island and others. Trump has made no secret of the fact that he has been speaking to the European Tour about the Irish Open but according to The Clare People, it appears that it may be a few years before his golf course will be ready.

Last Friday, Trump withdrew a planning application lodged with Clare County Council to construct coastal defences at Doonbeg, where a large swathe of the property is out of bounds to him because of the protected dunes and the microscopic snail.
