GOLF lovers could receive a personalised signed Christmas card from golfing superstar Rory McIlroy this month as part of a limited edition Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Festive Fan Pack that the European Tour has launched to help solve those last-minute shopping headaches.

- £50 MERCHANDISE VOUCHER that can be used in the tournament’s on-site store




Available to purchase until December 15 (to ensure delivery before Christmas Day), the cost for all of the above is £119 which offers a saving of more than 20% on the full retail price of £150.


Not only that, everyone who buys a Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Festive Fan Pack will be entered into a draw to receive one of 50 exclusive Christmas cards, personalised and signed by Rory McIlroy himself.


Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Championship Director Simon Alliss said:“The 2017 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open is set to be the biggest sporting event of the year in Ireland as the country gets behind Rory McIlroy to cheer him on to a successful defence of the title which he won in such exciting fashion at The K Club earlier this year.


If you have a golf fan in your family, then our exclusive Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Festive Fan Pack really is the perfect Christmas present,” he added. “Not only does it offer tremendous value for money for anyone wanting to go to the event, recipients will also have a chance to win one of just 50 personally signed Christmas cards from our defending champion Rory McIlroy. This is a unique offer that can be treasured long after the event has come and gone.


Families with young children will also be delighted to hear that admission is free for all under 16’s (when accompanied by an adult), so just one Festive Fan Pack could ensure a great day out for the entire family.”
