The Pro-Am at this year's ISPS Handa World Invitational has gained another couple of star names.

With the likes of singing sensation Niall Horan, Ulster Rugby hero Tommy Bowe and actor James Nesbitt already confirmed to tee it up at Galgorm Castle, they have now been joined by Westlife's Brian McFadden and record breaking champion jockey AP McCoy.

Tickets for the Pro-am, which will be played on Wednesday, August 14, are completely free. All spectators need to do is register for tickets online here.

Also among the amateurs taking part will be sporting heroes Pat Jennings, Oisin McConville and Michael McKillop.

The pro-am will lead into a big weekend of golf with the likes of European Solheim Cup captain Catriona Matthew descending on County Antrim for the main event.

The men's and women's tournaments will run simultaneously at Galgorm and Massereene Golf Clubs from August 15-18.

The men and women will compete for equal prize money in the $500,000 event

“The whole ethos of this tournament through ISPS Handa is to demonstrate equality, opportunity and give something back. It was an easy decision to make the fun Pro-am free for everyone to come and enjoy at special day at Galgorm,” explained Mark McDonnell, Director Modest! Golf.

“We are delighted to have such a great line-up for the Pro-am. There is always a great buzz around the venue during tournament week, especially at the Pro-am and we look forward to welcoming fans from around Northern Ireland as they get the chance to see some of their heroes in action.”
