Golf trips to Ireland, 2014
17th Tee at Waterville, September 2012

Over the last few years, I have listen to golfers saying "I liked where I was staying, but we spent too much time in the bus travelling from place to place".When you are choosing a set of golf courses to play in Ireland; I would recommend looking at specific areas such as, Northern Ireland, North West of Ireland, South West and the East of Ireland and pick a central location to hang your hat for most part of the trip. I am making this recommendation so that you can spend more time enjoying the town where you are located without too much travel time in the bus!
