Lady golfers take to the tee at Roe Park Resort

Women from 12 golf clubs across Northern Ireland competed at the annual Elemis Spa Ladies’ Open at the Roe Park Resort, Limavady, on bank holiday Monday.  

This year’s tournament attracted 110 lady golfers competing for the top spot on Roe Park Resort’s newly redesigned course. 

A popular fixture on the ladies’ golf circuit, the Elemis Spa Ladies’ Open is just one of the tournaments continuing to make Roe Park Resort a destination for competitive golfers. The Golf Digest Volvo Open Day, one of the biggest amateur golf tournaments on the island of Ireland, will also return to Roe Park in May 2018. 

Following this year’s Elemis Spa Ladies’ Open, Lady Captain of Roe Park Golf Club, Christine Wilson said: “We had such a great day on the course and I’d like to thank all of the women who came to Roe Park for a fantastic day of golf. The grand prize was £300 of Resort vouchers which continues to be a popular draw for women across Northern Ireland – we had lady golfers from Belfast to Ballycastle out on the course well as our own golfers from Roe Park Golf Club.

“In addition to the lovely atmosphere, the tournament was great value. It was only £7 to enter and all golfers left with a free Elemis gift bag worth £25. It is a brilliant day out from start to finish.”

After the day of competition, it was Bernie Kealey, Maureen McConalogue and Heather McLaughlin from home team Roe Park Golf Club who topped the leader board.

Roe Park Resort Golf & Spa Manager Terry Kelly added: “We continue to see great interest in our annual Elemis Spa Ladies’ Open, with many players returning to compete year after year. Having Elemis as the title sponsor has made the tournament particularly popular. 

“This year’s competition was especially challenging because of the work on the course as we recently completed a major investment programme totalling £1millon. The improvements have transformed the course and made this year’s tournament even more enjoyable and encouraged lots of friendly competition.

“We hope to see even more lady golfers at next year’s tournament on Monday 27th August 2018. It’s a great chance to plan a day out and take advantage of the last glimpse of summer sunshine! With the Golf Digest Volvo Open Day also coming up next year, 2018 will be another great year for golf at Roe Park.”
