Golf in Northern Ireland and the Causeway Coast & Glens are set for a massive year ahead. The 148th Open is coming to Royal Portrush 14th -21st July 2019.  This is the first time in almost 70 years that this iconic championship will return to Royal Portrush Golf Club.  The event presents a massive opportunity for the whole of Northern Ireland. There has been an unprecedented demand for tickets with all 4 championship days sold out, making it the first ever Open to sell out.  There will be an unprecedented media focus, thousands of spectators, a global TV audience of millions and a terrific atmosphere of celebration.  We will all want to showcase Northern Ireland and to give our global visitors a warm welcome.

Volunteer Now have recruited a team of motivated and enthusiastic volunteers who can bring an unrivaled visitor experience to the tournament and make this event truly unmissable.
