Great Day for Lady Golfers at Roe Park Resort

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

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 popular destination for competitive golfers. This year’s tournament attracted 108 female golfers competing for the top spot, as well as many spectators who enjoyed Roe Park Resort’s newly redesigned course and updated facilities. 

After the day of competition, it was Anne Kearney, Estelle Rose, Noleen McIntyre, from Roe Park Golf Club who topped the leader board.

Following this year’s event, Lady Captain of Roe Park Golf Club, Shona O’Connor said, 

“We enjoyed a great day of competitive golf and I would like to thank all of the ladies who came to Roe Park Resort for a fantastic event. The grand prize of £300 worth of Roe Park Resort vouchers continues to be a popular draw– we had golfers from seven clubs across Northern Ireland out on the course as well as our own golfers from Roe Park Golf Club.

“In addition to the superb course and lovely atmosphere, the tournament was great value, at only £5 entry fee for members and all the golfers left with a luxurious Elemis gift bag. All in all, this was a brilliant day out from start to finish.”

Roe Park Resort Golf and Spa Manager Terry Kelly added,

“Despite the unsettled spell of summer weather, the rain held off to provide perfect course conditions for all our lady golfers. Having Elemis as the title sponsor has made the tournament particularly popular and again, this year we continue to see great interest with many players returning to compete. 

“With the 2019 Open Championship hosted in Portrush, we have seen an increase in people taking up golf with a new-found passion for the game. To cater to this, we recently completed a major investment programme totalling £1millon, transforming the Roe Park Resort golf course. In September, our driving range will also be refurbished so our outdoor bays can accommodate everyone from the amateur to the professional. We hope to see even more lady golfers at next year’s tournament on Monday 26th August 2019.”
