Michael Gallagher PGA Head Professional at Clandeboye Golf Club
Hello and welcome, my name is Michael Gallagher and I am the PGA Head Professional at Clandeboye Golf Club in County Down.
In the last few years I have been awarded two very prestigious awards at the European Tour’s Headquarters, in the form of the UK and Ireland PGA Assistant Professional and Junior Golf Coach of the year.
Clandeboye is one of the top golf clubs in Ireland and to compliment this we have our new professional shop which is up there with the best in the country.
We cater for all ages and price ranges as well as stocking leading brands including Calvin Klein, Galvin Green, Oscar Jacobson, Oakley, Adidas, Green Lamb, Srixon, Cleveland, Titleist, Footjoy, Taylormade, Ping, Sketchers, Proquip, Cutter & Buck, Island Green, Sub Seventy, Masters, Superstroke, Golf Pride, Golphin, Powakaddy, Golf Buddy and many more. We are also the only shop to supply Clandeboye Golf Club and Irish Junior Open crested merchandise.
The club offers a splendid 36 hole complex comprising of the 6559 yards Dufferin Championship course (which has hosted many important events including the Irish Ladies Open and the Northern Ireland Open) and the shorter Ava Course (5775 yards) which is also very popular with members and visitors. Both courses are challenging and fair and provide a good test of golf for players of all abilities. They are set in wonderful scenic surroundings with views on one side over the Irish Sea and the other to Strangford Lough.
In 2014 I introduced a new junior golf event which has become the biggest junior golf tournament in the UK and Ireland. This event is called the ‘Irish Junior Open’ and in 2015 attracted over 300 junior golfers of all ages from Ireland and beyond to compete for the various titles on offer.
In 2016 I have introduced four provincial events throughout Ireland to form the new ‘Applegreen LowFuelcard Irish Junior Open Series’. These events will be played in the run up to the final which is set to become one of the biggest junior golf events in Europe.
I look forward to meeting you all very soon.
