New Friends from Florida

12 Jun 2017

I had the great privilege of looking after 15 golfers from Florida who came along with their 4 Club PGA Professionals. I made up the 16th golfer at Ballybunion G.C. (Old) and enjoyed golfing and dining with them too. New friends have been made for life and a nicer bunch of guys you wouldn't meet.

Availability of Tee Times on Irish Golf Courses

13 Aug 2015

It is truly remarkable that visitors have access to every single golf club in Ireland , with no exceptions whatsoever. As the vast majority of clubs are private, members clubs certain tee time restrictions apply, in order to accommodate members host their tournaments and invite their friends. We always take into account these restrictions when preparing an itinerary.

Early indications are that bookings for 2016 are way ahead of anything we have seen in the last 6/ 7 years – maybe the favourable US$ exchange rates is driving  this demand. This may well lead to an availability issue later in the year. We are therefore urging visitors to book early so they can get  favourable times

World Golf Championship - Bridgestone Invitational

13 Aug 2015

What a boost for golf in Ireland – Shane Lowry’s magnificent win last Sunday in the World Golf Championship- - Bridgestone International at Bridgestone.

Just over 14 months ago Shane was langushing at 142nd in the world rankings – with his Bridgestone win coupled with some excellent results in the last 12 months, Shane is now up to a career high of 19th in the world rankings. We all took pride in 2009 when as an amateur he won The Irish Open at Co. Louth (Baltray) G.C. Shane was a team mate of Rory McIlroys when Ireland won the European Amateur team Championships on two occasions. We now eagerly await look forward to The PGA at Whistling Straights to see both compete again on the worls stage.

To Shane, his team and his family we convey our heartiest congratulations and best wishes for the future.
