Open Weeks 2 - Irish Golf

Given our exceptional Irish golfing weather - a whole week of sunshine due next week - it really is a good time to keep eyes out for Open events around the country. 

There are two Open Weeks this coming week at Concra Wood and Faithlegg. And the weeks after that (12th July - 3rd August) you can pick from a variety of events at Bunclody, Killeen Castle and Waterford Castle.

Killeen Castle
The Jack Nicklaus-designed idyll that is Killeen Castle is charging between €35 and €50 to play over its expansive Co Meath landscape. Given the time of year, this is a good value green fee for a course that has become one of Ireland's top parklands. Click on the image to see the details enlarged.

Waterford Castle
Elsewhere, and a little further south, Waterford Castle is holding its Open Week between Friday 12th and Saturday 20th. Entry is €20 for Visitors.

Bunclody Golf and Fishing Club 
Bunclody is running its own series of events at its beautiful course on the Carlow/Wexford border. Events start on 25th July and prices range from €25 - €30. See below. For a review of the course, click here.

The TopGolfer event takes a Junior and Senior Scratch Cup  to Grange in Rathfarnham on Friday, 19th July. It is one of Dublin's most colourful courses and you can play it from the back sticks for €30.

(The Balbriggan TopGolfer Junior Scratch is the following day. For a full list of the TopGolfer events, click here.)

And finally, for the competitive low handicappers (5 - 9), here's an event at Donegal Golf Club, played over 36 holes for €35.
