K Club Smurfit at it again
A few months back, the K Club decided to jump on the 'Deals' bandwagon by offering a special rate for a round of golf on the Smurfit course, for two people, with a slap up meal afterwards...
... it must have worked well because they're doing it again - the only difference this time being the food, which is a two course meal in a different restaurant.

Here's the deal: €110 instead of €260 for a Tee Time for 2 at the 18 Hole Championship Smurfit Course, followed by a sumptuous 2 Course Meal in the Kwam Suk, Thai and Oriental Restaurant at the K Club.
It's a saving of €150 - normal price €260.
You can get the deal here, on Pigsback, up until Monday 21 November. There are a couple of conditions, although they're not too restrictive:
- This voucher is valid until Mar 31 2012 - This voucher is valid Tues - Sun only - Meal is from a set menu

The Smurfit is not my favourite course, but much of that was to do with the cost of green fees, which was €250 at the time. If they're now offering a round and a meal for €55 per person, then my attitude towards them has softened... although the original price of €130 per person would still be too high to get me along. The closing stretch is superb, and one of my favourite photographs (out of 3,500), taken on my travels, is of the 17th hole.
