|The 2nd hole - a par three (taken 2008)|
A couple of months back I posted two photos of Ballyneety Golf Club. They were before and after shots, showing how the club had looked in its prime (when it was called Limerick County GC), and how it looked last year. The difference was startling: the immaculate fairways of 2010 had given way to three foot high grass and weeds in 2013. Bunkers were invisible, ponds besieged and fairway definition a distant memory. Photos are here
And yet, in the here and now, that same club has just collected the GUI award for Munster Golf Club of the Year.
