After some input from the gang on Boards.ie I got some useful alternatives... of which Fairways Less Travelled was perfect.
So here are Ireland's top 20 Fairways Less Travelled: 10 links and 10 parkland. Each blog will have free fourballs to be won.
Here are the first two courses:
Bearna Golf Club, Co. GalwayBearna sits on the Galway Bay coastline, west of Galway city. Opened in 1996, Bearna has a mystique that is enthralling. The holes are built on bogland, sliding down to the ocean and offering views over the Aran Islands and across to the Burren. These are made even more spectacular by the tall clubhouse which looks over much of the course. But Bearna’s unique qualities come from elsewhere - from the deep, rich turf, the still, dark waters and the flora that flourishes everywhere, lavishing the undergrowth with colour.
