Royal Portrush hosts 148th Open

Graphic News

July 18-21, 2019 -- The 148th Open will be played at the Dunluce Links at Royal Portrush Golf Club in County Antrim, marking a historic return to Northern Ireland after a near 70-year absence.

The course has undergone major changes as part of preparations to host the tournament, including the introduction of two new holes – the long par-5 7th and the par-4 8th.

Nine of the holes have new tees and several new bunkers have been introduced, including five on the new 7th hole and three on the new 8th. The changes means the course has been lengthened by 201 yards to 7,344 yards.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
