History of The Irish Open:
The first Irish Open was played in 1890 and at that time Irish golf was match play and was played on peat bogs.
By the time the players walked the so called fairway assuming they themselves had not got sucked under, there where no balls to be found.
The players had to carry an extra bag full of balls, a bit like playing on WGT today. Very often no ball could be found on the soggy greens.
Therefore the winner of the hole would be decided by having a drinking competition.
In the case of the gentry, a dual with pistols determined who actually won the hole.
This obviously led to a major loss of quality golfers in Ireland due either to death or alcoholism, therefore something had to be done.
In 2016 a great idea was put forward by Seamus O'Hallihan a famous local drunkard and a distant cousin of El Presidente. It was decided to hold The Irish Open on virtual ground and The Las Vegas Knights Country Club Irish Open was born.
