Irish Golf Clubs Move With The Times

Moyvalley's 17th green, to the 16th green
If you want to know how Irish golf clubs and golf resorts are preparing for the years ahead, here's a piece I wrote for the Irish Examiner. There are over 30 courses covered and that is really only a fraction of the investment clubs are putting into their number one asset. Indeed, neither Moyvalley (€1 million in 2016) or
Farnham Estate (a massive €6 million overhaul, to include a clubhouse) were included in the piece.

Here's the Examiner article.

From Glen of the Downs to Ballybunion, from Royal Portrush to Castlemartyr, from Killarney to St. Anne's, and from Strandhill to New Forest... no corner of the country is taking it easy.

  1. Absolutely. For the casual golfer they should recommend getting rid of the antiquated ‘farthest from the hole plays first’ rule. If you’re ready take your shot.
