Golf Ireland Golf Promotion - Saturday April 2nd
West Waterford Golf Club
couple of weeks ago I said I would let you know as soon as I heard about Golf
Ireland’s 2016 ‘Dublin Golf Promotion’
In what is a departure from previous years, when the
event was held in Ballsbridge, in the evening, the 2016 event by Failte Ireland's 'Golf Ireland' arm has moved to the
Crowne Plaza hotel in Santry. It will
be held on Saturday April 2nd, between
2pm and 5pm.
It is hoped that such changes will make it easier to
attend, both in terms of accessibility and availability.

So, what is the event all about? It’s about some 40 Irish
golf clubs and resorts promoting their courses, services and various golfing
packages to golfers. Yes, it’s aimed at groups rather than individuals, but
don’t assume you won’t get a little something extra if you have a four ball ready and willing to make a booking. This is all about Irish golf –
selling it, supporting it and playing it. Golf clubs are working hard to
provide great value packages so why not drop by and see what’s out there for
the passionate golfer. Golfgraffix will also have their launch monitor there so you can knock out a few shots and see how well you do.
There will be numerous prizes given away on the day,
too. Expect free four balls from many of the courses and maybe a free overnight
stay or two at a hotel. Who knows… throw a business card in a bowl and you may
win something else.

Some of the courses in attendance will be the classy Castlemartyr Resort
in Cork, the Christy O’Connor designed Galway Bay Golf Resort, Portmarnock
Hotel & Golf Links, the excellent Donegal Golf Club, the relatively unknown
but idyllic West Waterford Golf Club and the Radisson Blu Farnham Estate Golf
The hotel is on Northwood Avenue, Santry, Dublin 9.
Pop it in your diary and drop by after your morning 18 holes.
