Translink is the latest major local company to come on board as one of the Official Suppliers for next week's Tayto Northern Ireland Open, in partnership with Ulster Bank, at Galgorm Castle in Ballymena.

The transport firm will operate a frequent free shuttle bus service to the course from Ballymena rail station and also from Ballee park and ride, off the M2 with discounted fares and family deals on offer on bus and rail services to the town.

Every year the NI Open breaks the European Challenge Tour attendance records with almost 40,000 through the gates in 2015. This year organisers are confident they can attract in the region of 45,000, especially as admission is free to the golf and side attractions.

Practice days take place on Monday and Tuesday (July 25-26) before the eagerly anticipated NI Open Pro-Am on Wednesday, July 27 where stars including One Direction's Niall Horan, Northern Ireland goalkeeping legend Pat Jennings and former Ulster and Lions rugby player Stephen Ferris will be playing.

The NI Open tournament for the professionals is from Thursday July 28-31. Register for free event tickets at
