Time running out to enter the Great Irish Links Challenge and play three great golf courses in Ireland
Having just returned from Scotland, it got me thinking about what I like better – Scotland or Ireland. The truth is I can’t decide. Both places offer terrific links golf and great pubs. But if you want to get closer to the source of one of my favorite libations, Guinness, you’ve got to check out Ireland.
Fortunately, there’s a great opportunity to do just that coming up real soon, May 22-25 to be more exact. It’s called the Great Irish Links Challenge, and it’s a chance for you to play a three-day tournament on three links courses in western Ireland: Doonbeg Golf Club, the Old Course at Ballybunion and Lahinch. You can read a story I wrote about the Great Irish Links Challenge here.
I’ve played all three of these courses. While Doonbeg, a Greg Norman design, is rather new, it’s still a great links experience. And Ballybunion and Lahinch have history and Mother Nature on their side as well, which is no wonder that tour players love to play both of these places on the way to the British Open.
Cost to play in the tournament is around $890, and it includes tournament rounds, prizes, transportation between the courses and the Shannon Airport and some meals.
