Amateur CLUB golf in Northern Ireland is set for an exciting and innovative addition thanks to a new amateur golf company set up by Belfast man Thomas Hughes.
Hughes has formed Golf Am-NI, Northern Ireland’s first amateur golf events company, with the aim of providing an extra dimension to the local club game by adding a qualifying element to club competitions starting in March 2021.
The idea centres around turning four weekly tournaments at clubs across the country into qualifiers, with the winners of each event receiving an invitation to Golf Am-NI’s National Final. (International Pairs final)

Thomas said: “I’ve been trying to get into the golf sector for a while now, and I made a contact with some guys in South Africa who run a company out there called the International Pairs,” said Hughes of the idea.
“They’d been doing that for more than 20 years.
“Northern Ireland has nothing, and hasn’t had anything for a long time, outside of club competitions for club golfers, so I’m excited to try and give every club member a chance to play competitive golf.”

International Pairs is very excited about the latest development with Northern Ireland becoming a participating country. Northern Ireland have a very rich golfing history with some great Professional Champions. Now the amateurs golfers in Northern Ireland will have the opportunity to qualify to play on a World Stage against players from all over the World and possibly emulate their heroes by possibly becoming World Champion amateur golfers.

Welcome Northern Ireland we look forward to seeing your International Pairs finalist at the World Finals next year.
