Golf, Easter, Ireland

View from the 2nd tee at Strandhill
Three Little Words that will see your Easter celebrations move along very nicely indeed.

There will be golf all over Ireland this Easter… available to the masses courtesy of Open events in abundance. No doubt most of you have plans to play your home course (why are you paying your annual sub after all) but if you’re looking for a game, then you’re spoilt for choice with fun events, good prizes and, of course, perfect weather guaranteed.

Here are just six venues to get you started. You’ll need to check timesheets for formats (there’s a wide variety), etc., but is a good place to start.
