Flogas Ireland has confirmed it will sponsor the Irish Amateur Open for another three years until 2021.

John Rooney, Managing Director of Flogas Ireland said: "The Flogas Irish Amateur Open is firmly established on the international stage as one of the most historic and prestigious events in the amateur golf calendar, and played on some of Ireland’s best golf courses every year.

"We in Flogas are delighted and truly honoured to have our company associated with this event over the past two years and are looking forward to its hosting on the famous links of Royal County Down next month. 

"For us, it was an easy decision to renew this sponsorship for a further three years and we are very much looking forward to bringing the event to County Sligo next year and Galway for the following two years."

Pat Finn, CEO of the GUI said: “Working with Flogas has been a wonderful experience. Not only are they supporting our flagship event, but they are providing our member clubs with very competitive energy deals and in the current climate that is very welcome. We look forward to working with Flogas for many years to come”.

The Flogas Irish Amateur Open takes place from 17-20 May at Royal County Down with Peter O’Keeffe from Douglas Golf Club the defending champion.

The event will be played at County Sligo in 2019 and at Galway Golf Club in 2020 and 2021 before moving to The Island in 2022.
