Just Treats at Co Longford Golf Club

The 6th, green to tee
(lots of water to the right as you approach)
I was driving from Belmullet to Wexford this day last week, and I stopped in Longford town for a break. It took me a while to find the golf club (it is a comment I make in my Hooked review, and even though I'd been there in 2008, it still took me a while to find it). It was worth the effort as the course was looking superb... so it seems only fair that I blog about Just Treats latest offer, which is for the Co Longford Golf Club.

It was a perfect sunny evening when I strolled out and took some photographs of the course

In this weather, courses never look better and Co Longford impressed me far more than I remembered. It had a major revamp in 2005, so when I visited in 2007 it may still have been settling in.

If you feel inclined you can get two green fees for €25 (i.e. €12.50 each) which can be used on any day - a major bonus for the time-poor golfers out there. I met a lady on the 9th green (a par four straight up the hill) who thought her approach shot might be in the hole... I didn't have the heart to tell her it was in the bunker and scurried off before she reached it. Nothing worse on a golf course than thinking you've hit the perfect shot, only to find it in trouble.

The 15th - a sweet and straight par four. Mind that tree
