Following a hugely successful inaugural staging in 2015, the Volopa Irish Challenge returned to the Challenge Tour schedule for the 2016 season, with Bernd Ritthammer claiming a second victory of the season.

The German was one of the stars of 2016, ultimately winning for a third time at the season-ending NBO Golf Classic Grand Final, as he emphatically proved himself worthy of a place on the European Tour - never more apparent than during his five-shot win at Mount Wolseley Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort.

One year earlier, Tom Murray won a maiden Challenge Tour title in dramatic fashion, holing a lengthy birdie putt on the second additional hole to beat Nino Bertasio in a play-off.
