We were delighted to host the 2011 Faldo Series Grand Final, welcoming 81 of the world’s top young players, Sir Nick Faldo himself, and a very special guest, US Open Champion, Rory McIlroy! Rory caused quite a stir when he joined Sir Nick Faldo to give a clinic to competitors ahead of Gavin Samuels being crowned Faldo Series winner!
The Solheim Cup took place at the end of September, and some nail biting play saw Europe securing a historic fourth victory. In celebration of the success, Lough Erne is delighted to announce a ‘Ladies Golf Retreat’ on the 19th and 20th October.

"The team at Lough Erne Resort are proud to offer its congratulations to Rory McIlroy, The Resort's touring professional, for his historic win at the 2011 US Open. This is a huge feat for Rory and has once again placed Northern Ireland on the international golfing stage.
The Lough Erne Resort's association with Rory is one that stands for all that is excellent, inspirational and world class about the game. Northern Irelandstands strong as an international leader in golf and The Resort looks forward to encouraging and nurturing further golfing talent. We also hope that this will succeed in attracting major international golfing tournaments to Northern Ireland, in particular to The Faldo Course at the Lough Erne Resort, a Top 100 Course in the UK and Ireland.
Once again congratulations from the Lough Erne Resort to Rory, the deserved winner and champion of the 2011 US Open."
