Royal County Down looked spectacular from the TV. It certainly was challenging for the players with the weather conditions. Thankfully there was sunshine on the final day which showed it at its best with the backdrop of the Mourne Mountains.
I also will be holding my breath for good weather Wednesday & Thursday when my group are playing Enniscrone another challenging links course!
The first trip undertaken by the new company Green Landscapes Social Golf Breaks Ireland to Westport was exciting and challenging. We played Westport Golf course which is a beautiful scenic course with views over Clew Bay & Croagh Patrick.
We had gale force winds and hailstones and I have photos to prove it! Croagh Patrick was covered in snow just like someone poured a bag of sugar over the top of it. We had a wonderful time supporting one another up the 16th as we tried to open umbrellas in gale force winds. We are definitely going back to play this great course again!
We enjoyed a few hot whiskeys in Matt Molloys to recover after our experience while listening to traditional music.
The following nights were as exciting with dancing and socialising to country and western music while sharing stories with other golfers.
“Who wants sunshine and fine weather when you can have wonderful memories with such scenic views”.
