Business of Sport: Royal Portrush gets ready to Open for business in 2019
By the time the Open Championship reaches Portrush in 2019, it will be worth in the region of €90 million to the North, writes Brian Keogh at Hoylake.
It’s not just the biggest golf tournament in the world, it’s also massive business, estimated to be worth close to €90 million to the local economy.
The Open – the oldest and most prestigious of golf’s four major championships — will return to these shores from 2019 at the earliest, with organisers the R&A inviting Royal Portrush back onto the rota of courses used for the event.
