With a trip that included golf at Powerscourt, Island Golf Club, Carton House, K Club, Druids Glen and Mount Juliet, Tim Baines (the author of this article) had a lot of good to say about golfing in Ireland. And so did the people he met.
"I'm proud of this country. We look after our guests," said Aine Mangan, director of the Dublin East Coast Golf Alliance (which won the IAGTO European Golf Destination of 2015 award). "I've golfed around the world," said K Club pro Michael Dixon. "If you say K Club, they say 'Oh, the K Club- the Ryder Cup. There has to be some mystique when you've had such great walks and play a tournament like that."
With courses like Druids Glen, often called the Augusta of Europe, golf in Ireland has plenty to offer to visiting golfers. For more on the area, check out dublingolfalliance.com.
