Rory McIlroy launches The Epic Journey to The 148th Open
Beginning in March, we’re hosting 'The Epic Journey to The 148th Open' which will involve larger-than-life size letters spelling out #TheOpen travelling across Northern Ireland, promoting the upcoming championship.
The schedule for the letters is as follows:
1st March: Belfast City Hall
14th March: Enniskillen Castle, Fermanagh
9th May: Shambles Yard, Armagh
16th May: Guildhall, Derry~Londonderry
30th May: Portrush Golf Club, Antrim
6th June: Slieve Donard Hotel, Down
13th June: Hill of O’Neill Visitor Centre, Tyrone
TBC: Dublin City Centre
At each stop you’ll have the opportunity to take a photo with the replica Claret Jug, chat with local sports stars and put your pitching skills to the test. There will be a regional leader board, updated at each location, which keeps a record of the best – find out how you compare by chipping a golf ball through the ‘O’ of the 3D letters and see where you rank. There will be goody bags for the best on the day.

Capture and share your best photograph and videos of the larger-than-life 3D letters which spell out ‘#TheOpen’ on social media, along with the hashtags #TheOpen and #DiscoverNI. We’ll pick a winner from each location that the letters stop at, based on the creativity, composition and imagination displayed.
The prize is definitely worth the effort too – 2x Championship Day tickets for The Open in July 2019!
