Following the success of hosting the 2021 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, Mount Juliet Estate is delighted to host the 2022 Horizon Irish Open.
The 2022 Horizon Irish Open will take place from the 30th of June to the 3rd of July 2022.
Over the past 30 years, the Jack Nicklaus Signature Design course has held an esteemed position across the Irish golfing landscape, hosting a series of prestigious, international golf events.
The course has a prestigious history of hosting major golf events and producing world-class champions.

Tiger Woods emerged victorious in 2002, beating Retief Goosen – who shares the Mount Juliet Estate course record with Sergio Garcia – by one stroke, while Ernie Els claimed the 2004 trophy, overcoming another European Tour legend in Thomas Bjørn by one shot.
