Knightsbrook - €44 for Golf and Buggy for Two (Just Treats)

The par three 5th
As part of my current Irish 'tour' I visited the Knightsbrook Golf Resort, in Trim. Co. Meath, during the week. I hadn't played the course since 2008, so I wanted to see how such a big course had evolved in the last six years. At just over 30 minutes from Dublin, it's an easy journey and the course is open to visitors on weekends - which is always a bonus for free-spirited golfers looking for that weekend game.

The young trees are making a big difference to holes - the resort only opened in 2006. They're starting to blend nicely with the mature trees scattered about. Paddy, in the Pro shop, assured me that the greens were in excellent condition, and he wasn't wrong... although with all the recent good weather they were surprisingly firm for this time of year.

This is a long course with a big feel... with water on 11 holes. Check it out for yourself with the latest offer from Just Treats. For €22 each you get to play golf and travel around in a buggy. Check out the offer here.

The long par four dogleg 8th
These Knightsbrook photos don't really do it justice (grey days on both visits), but you can see how the course has 'filled out' a good bit. And don't forget the hotel if you're looking for a place to stay.
