Irish Golf for Free. Play Baltray on Sat May 18th

Irish Golf is a beautiful thing... Free Irish Golf is even better!

I have a tee time booked for 2.10pm on Saturday 18th May for Baltray, a.k.a Co. Louth. I'm after three volunteers who'd like to play the scene of Shane Lowry's hair-raising amateur victory in the Irish Open (2009, in case you'd forgotten).

Baltray is often regarded as one of Ireland's hidden links gems (so hidden in fact that I have no photos of the place) and it's only 60km from Dublin City Centre. Apparently the 18th interferes with some Champions League football match as well as the Heineken Cup. I guess you have a decision to make.
