Mount Juliet Anyone? 'Inside the Ropes' Needs Volunteers
[Photo: the par three 14th, green to tee]
My 'Inside the Ropes' project is progressing at a good pace and now Mount Juliet have agreed to come on board and offer me a complimentary fourball... which means that I am looking for three golfers to join me in Kilkenny on Sunday 19th August for a 2.50pm tee off time. If you're a member of the golf forum on Boards.ie, then I suggest you go there and add your name to the list... otherwise leave your name and mobile number on here as a Comment (I won't publish the Comments, so your mobile number will be private).
I can't say much about Mount Juliet that you don't already know - it helps when you're regularly ranked as the best parkland in Ireland.
If you want to play there are a few things to note:
· Your handicap is irrelevant - if you can hit a ball, stick your name down - I'm not handicapist.
· You must be available to play and be at the course on time. I'd suggest getting there at least 30 minutes beforehand as it's worth touring the place and the practice facilities. There's a full 18 hole putting course at Mount Juliet as well, so if you want to play that, get there in plenty of time.
· I'm looking for golfers who have not had the privilege of playing the venue before.
· You must be prepared to spend half an hour in the bar afterwards!
