Run by not-for-profit organisation Ireland Gateway to Europe, the competition will be the largest international business golf event ever held in Ireland.

Teams from Ireland, Boston College and Georgia Tech, Atlanta will compete in an event that will welcome 150 players, including a number of leading US business CEOs, politicians, figures from the world of business, and senior representatives from Boston College and Georgia Tech universities.
