Are You Booking an Irish Golf Tour for 2015/2016?
Suppose you have been given the god-awful job of organizing Fortricks, the boys’ or girls’ golf tour in Ireland or wherever else for 2015/2016! You must read the following points because I would like to share a few of my thoughts to help you plan a great golf trip for everyone to enjoy. I will outline some crucial aspects to ensure you won’t make the task a complete disaster. In this piece, I will focus on helping you build a great Irish Golf Tour.
Create a checklist… If you do nothing else, create a list. Detail: golf courses, transportation, accommodation, great places to eat at every stop, great shopping, what sights to see, research Irish sporting events, and whatever else you think the group would like to do. You must obtain the group’s congroup’son, which golf courses they want to play. But be realistic, and trust me, the idea of playing Waterville and Royal Portrush on the same trip sounds great, but they’re traveling between those golf courses, and you will lose too much time traveling when you could be playing golf. Before you decide where you would like to play golf, I typically segment Ireland into four golfing destinations. However, the areas can overlap depending on the courses you would like to play.
Southwest golf links courses: Ballybunion G.C., Doonbeg G.C., Dooks G.C., Lahinch G.C., Old Head Golf Links, Tralee G.C. & Waterville Golf Links. Southwest Parkland Golf Course: Cork Golf Club, Adare Golf Club (at the Manor House) & Killeen at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club. Dublin Golf Links (Baltray, European Club, The Island, Portmarnock G.C., Portmarnock Links & Royal Dublin) North & West Golf Links: both courses at Ballyliffin, Carne, Donegal, Enniscrone, Narin & Portnoo, Northwest, Portsalon, both methods at Rossapenna, Rosses Point. (Please note that there is a lot of traveling from place to place around the West and North West of Ireland). Northern Ireland Golf Links: Ardglass, both courses at Royal County Down, at Royal Portrush, Castlerock & Port Stewart My Update Studio.
If you would like a sample of a few Irish golf tour segments, I suggest mixing up the South Dublin, North West, and Northern courses. But please be advised: keep traveling from place to place to the minimum. Nothing is worse than trying to fit too much into a four-day, five-day, or seven-day Irish Golf Tour. The trick here is to ensure that you spend as little time traveling in a bus or hire a car (by the way, don’t drive on the roads that can be challenging) and spend all your time playing golf. Or invest the time exploring the area that you are located in. I am sure you will meet more people from socializing in the local pubs, and maybe you might decide to pack up the clubs for the day and go fishing! I assure you that you will find all the cool places to enjoy excellent evening meals with good entertainment; maybe even enjoy a few pints with the caddies and catch some of the great traditional Irish music.
