This month's issue includes Nicole Kidman, Morgan Freeman, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans... and our own Dermot Synott - all in attendance at the star-studded Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am. Loads of photos and the golf looks fairly tasty, too.
Mission Hills is a serious set-up. There are 22 courses designed by the biggest names in today's game and these are spread across two resorts, each slowly developing into something resembling an entire city... it's a scary thought when you live in a country as small as ours. Issue 23, in its entirety, was devoted to this behemoth of golf.
The IAGTO awards, held in Italy, gave a big thumbs up to golf on Ireland's east coast, with the Dublin East Coast Golf Alliance to the fore (no pun intended). The Alliance brings together The Island, Carton House x 2, The K Club x 2, Powerscourt x 2 and both Druid's Glen and Druid's Heath. It's a novel idea that's been running for a few years, combining nine prestigious courses... but the price of €499 makes it a tough sell in the current market.
