Monday June 4th 2018

Arrive into Shannon Airport where your group’s driver will take you to your hotel, Killarney Lodge to check in and get acquainted with the Irish way. While on your travels, we suggest you begin with some exploring and what better place to start than at the 15th century tower house, Bunratty Castle.

Today is all about resting up after your flight in preparation for the exhilarating courses you are about to put your game to the test on.

Ballybunion Golf Club

Ballybunion Golf Club

Tuesday June 5th 2018

Get your southwest journey underway with play at the legendary Old Course at Ballybunion Golf Club. Having undergone green and bunker reconstruction as well as adding a bump and run style required around the greens, the course is now fully set and offers 100% fescue grass. A true links gem and a favorite of Tom Watson, so much so that he became Club Captain – you are getting your vacation off on the right foot.

That evening, dine at Treyvaud’s Restaurant and enjoy some Guinness in Murphy’s Bar before returning to Killarney Lodge for your second of three nights.

Round two on the itinerary is at one of our personal favorite gems in the southwest, Dooks Golf Club. Inviting golfers since 1889 when it was just a nine hole course, this stunning track has evolved over the years and added an additional nine holes back in the 1970s.

Designers Eddie Hackett and Martin Hawtree were the masterminds behind this project having also worked on nearby courses, Waterville Golf Links, the home of our Father/Son and Father /Daughter golf tournaments and Lahinch Golf Club.

Say goodbye to the good folks at Killarney Lodge as you depart and make your way to the Trident Hotel in Kinsale for the remaining two nights of your journey. While en route, take advantage of your free day of leisure by having your group driver stop at sights, Killarney National Park, Torc Waterfall, and/or the Gap of Dunloe.

Upon arriving in Kinsale that evening, we suggest you try out some of the local cuisine for dinner at a Carr Golf favorite, The Black Pig.

Old Head of Kinsale

Old Head Golf Links

Friday June 8th 2018

As our late founder and Ireland’s greatest amateur golfer, Joe Carr said, “The Old Head’s location, its scenic reality and spectacular terrain remind me of Cypress Point and Pebble Beach. It is a golfer’s paradise with the potential of being the eighth wonder of the world, in golfing terms.”

Sitting 300 feet above the Atlantic Ocean, there are no other golf courses throughout the world that match the views and quality of golf provided at Old Head Golf Links. It is “the” venue to cap off a memorable visit to Ireland with your closest friends. End the day with a visit to The Steakhouse Restaurant where you can converse over your most incredible day of golf yet!

As the saying goes “all good things must come to an end” and sadly, today is that day. Your group driver will take you the short distance to Cork Airport, where you will return home inspired by your adventure and will no doubt be eagerly awaiting to tee it up at that next member tournament and showcase your links skills.

Alternatively, it doesn’t have to end as our travel team can arrange extended play on other Southwest courses, Lahinch, Waterville Golf Links, the newly rebuilt Golf Course at Adare Manor and more.
