In today’s Podcast we are returning to the Business of Golf series talking with movers and shakers from across the sport.

Mark Nolan is the general manager at Dromoland Castle host venue for the revived KPMG Women’s Irish Open in 2022 and 2023.

Our chat covers how he got into the luxury game, what hosting the open has meant for the hotel, where he likes to go on holiday and plenty more.

The Business of Golf is brought to you with the support of our friends at KPMG, Golf Ireland and Forefront Sports. So far in our Podcast series we have spoken to Paul Here General Manager at the K Club and Paul Gillmon the tournament director of the Horizon Irish Open.

We will be exploring further the business of golf over the coming months in what is a great time to be involved in the sport.

If you’d like to find out more about our plans or even get involved you can email me at and sure we will see what is possible.

The KPMG Women’s Irish Open is on Thursday 31st August to Sunday September 3rd and it really is a very special event to be at.
