The group service includes the following: 24 concierge services, all booking fees & taxes, transportation, golf courses, accommodation & breakfast. A PGA professional to play and he is available to give any type of golf advice/coaching when required by the group. Concierge Golf made reservations for dinner each night and they can be altered to suit he groups requirements.

After this trip, I had some time to consult with the our customer, Mr McNamara and I have made the following notes from my his feedback.  

Golf Courses:
All the golf courses were in good condition. But the European Club played very challenging for this group and they mentioned a couple of items:
1.    The rough was a little too tough on this occasion
2.    Mr McNamara felt they needed a lot more local knowledge to shot lower scores. 

The greens at the Carton House Montgomery course were great and the weather they had playing Doonbeg and Lahinch G.C was just fantastic. They did like playing with a PGA golf professional each day. As a result this added significantly to their golfing experience. Most of the golfers enjoyed posting better tournament scores and they had more fun because they were losing less golf balls. Plus, they could compete and make more bets during their respective two man team matches.

The group were all night owls and they really enjoyed their stay at the Temple Bar Hotel. But be prepared to be disturbed if you are a light sleeper! The music generally vibrates through the building until the music stops. They did like the central hotel location to the pubs and it was within a 5 to 10 minute walk to restaurants around Stephen’s Green and Grafton Street.

There were all happy with the restaurant selections and the seating arrangements suited the group. They had a great time during the Wednesday's nights entertainment at Tubridys Pub in Doonbeg. They had "a very special trip".

So all together, the group had a great time and a lot of great memories to take home. 

Please Contact John Dooley PGA Concierge Golf or email Concierge Golf for more information on how to book and how much this trip would cost.


Just a nice day to play Doonbeg
