Irish sportsman Brendan Lawlor will make history next week as the first disabled golfer to play the European Tour when he tees off in the inaugural ISPS HANDA UK Championship - the final event of the UK Swing - at The Belfry from August 27-30.

Currently ranked fourth in the World Rankings for Golfers with Disability (WR4GD), the 22-year-old Irishman has also now confirmed Carton House as his new home of golf for the next 12 months as he works to prepare and compete at upcoming tournaments all over the world. Nestled in the heart of 1,100-acres of private parkland in County Kildare,

Brendan will have access to two of Ireland’s finest championship golf courses, the classic parkland O’Meara and the inland links Montgomerie, as well as the professional driving range and exceptional leisure and dining facilities of this award winning club.

Niall Horan, Brendan’s manager and owner of Modest Golf Management echoed his sentiments. “It’s so good to see such an iconic golf club as Carton House welcome Brendan and promote inclusivity in golf. I’ve always loved Carton House and cannot wait to get down for a game myself with Brendan soon.”
