AN evaluation report is being prepared for councillors regarding the ISPS HANDA World Invitational golf tournament which was held in the Ballymena and Antrim areas this year.
A Council minute on discussions by councillors in Mid & East Antrim makes reference to a “poor” attendance at this year’s event.
Bannside TUV councillor Stewart McDonald said local support should be encouraged and residents living close to the course should be given free admission to make up for any inconvenience they may suffer.
Several councillors said the event had merit and said it brought much publicity to the area.
The evaluation report is to include a review of pricing.
