Playing a round in Ireland

Westport GC, Ireland

Fourteen ladies flew to the west coast of Ireland to play golf.

This is what happened:

Westport Golf Club

Situated on the shores of Clew Bay in the shadow of Croagh Patrick, Ireland’s famous holy mountain, Westport boasts fantastic views of the surrounding area from its elevated position. Plays like a rolling parkland on the first nine and then more like a links on the back nine – which calls for character. One of the very best parkland courses I have played on in Ireland. For best results,  play with a blinding hangover.

Enniscrone Golf Club

I’m not sure which word best describes this links course: dramatic or difficult. They call it the award-winning Enniscrone Golf Club for a reason. Sensational layout, majestic views and positively the most ridiculously intimidating approach shots to what can only be described as eccentric greens.  I peaked with an easy birdie on the first hole and after that it was quite literally all downhill for me.

Carne Golf Links

If God created a better golf course … he kept it for himself. I last played this stunning links course almost a decade ago and just like a fine wine over the years it has matured, ripened and blossomed with age. Carne Golf Links lies in magnificent unspoiled sand dunes overlooking Blacksod Bay and the wild Atlantic Ocean near the town of Belmullet. Everything that links golf should be. Unforgettable!

    • Hi Josh, welcome! Glad you enjoyed it. Was an amazing trip and if you ever make your way over from Canada – a golf trip to the west coast of Ireland is highly recommended. Amazing links courses, great locals and superb craic … as they say!
