Golf fans snapping up free tickets for this summer's Galgorm Castle Northern Ireland Amateur Open will pick up the added bonus of a complimentary £50 golf holiday voucher.

The incentive comes from newly announced tournament travel partner, Your Golf Travel, the world's largest golf travel company.

This year's £140,000 Galgorm showpiece from August 28-31 promises another stellar line-up, headlined by five-time European Tour winner Michael Hoey, and including several European and Challenge Tour winners.

Last year, just over 22,000 spectators watched Daan Huizing of the Netherlands triumph in a dramatic play-off victory over 2008 Ryder Cup star Oliver Wilson.

Organisers' hopes of topping that figure this year have now been boosted by the arrival on board of Your Golf Travel and their £50 voucher offer to fans registering for free event tickets via

Your Golf Travel co-founder Ross Marshall said: "We're thrilled to continue our support of golf in Northern Ireland, which extends through our global brand ambassador Darren Clarke.

"Northern Ireland is home to some of the best links courses in the world, but the retention of Galgorm Castle as host venue shows the variety of golf on offer, reinforcing it as a must-see golfing destination."

Gary Henry, director of Galgorm Castle added: "The NI Open places Northern Ireland in the global shop window to a potential audience of over 400 million viewers and for local fans, its a chance to see world class golf for free."
