The Ladies European Tour (LET) has announced that the Women’s Irish Open has chosen KPMG to be its title sponsor for the next three years.
The tournament, which is returning to the women’s golfing schedule following a ten-year absence, will take place from 22-25 September 2022 at Dromoland Castle’s championship course in County Clare.
Mark Nolan, Managing Director at Dromoland Castle, said: “Dromoland Castle are delighted to welcome KPMG as title sponsor for the Women’s Irish Open. We look forward to working together in staging the historic return of this event to Ireland for the first time in 10 years.
“KPMG’s commitment to women’s sport and women’s golf over the past number of years, both in Ireland & beyond are a clear indication of their vision and we are delighted to join them on this journey & help establish the KPMG Women’s Irish Open as one of the premier events of the Ladies European Tour.
“Alongside our recent investment of €2 million on our championship golf course, we look forward to providing a platform for the leading women golfers to showcase their talents in September.”
The deal is an extension of the multinational professional services network’s ongoing commitment to the ‘development, advancement, and empowerment’ of women’s sport in Ireland.
KPMG has previously supported the 20×20 campaign and its ongoing sponsorship of Irish golfer Leona Maguire, Irish jockey, Rachael Blackmore, and the Dublin Ladies Gaelic football team.
“KPMG is thrilled to announce that it will be the title sponsor of the Women’s Irish Open ahead of its historic return to the LET schedule in September,” added Declan Keane, KPMG Chief Operating Officer.
“We are incredibly proud of our history in supporting both the game of golf, as well as women’s sport in Ireland, and with today’s announcement we look forward to building our relationship with both over the coming years.
“As a Firm, we are committed to investing in young talented people in Ireland and it is my hope that the KPMG Women’s Irish Open will inspire the next generation Irish golfers to compete at the highest level of the game.”
Additionally, the firm also holds heritage in the game of golf, both in Ireland and abroad, having been title sponsor of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship since 2015. The company is also the title sponsor of the KPMG Irish Kids Golf Tour.
