Mount Juliet Baulks at Holding the Irish Open

The scramble is on to find a host course for the 2009 Irish Open, Ireland's only European PGA Tour event. Previous reports had suggested that Mount Juliet would stage the event, but yesterday the estate management reluctantly had to refuse the hosting invitation from the European Tour.

The reasons given were prior commitments on the estate at that time, but the premature leaking of the venue as a fait accompli certainly didn't help matters. It is now believed that the search for a new host course is centred on the East coast, as everyone knows that's where the best courses in Ireland are!!!!!!!!!!
