Went up to Stepaside Driving Range this afternoon – first time there. Trying to get back into golf after a lengthy absence. I went for the bigger basket – 100 balls for €8.50. The smaller one was €6.
The rubber tee is fine for driving but I found using an iron off the mat a bit off putting. It’s not the same as hitting a ball off the fairway. I’d either top the ball or hit the mat first – ouch.
Looking forward to my next visit.
Last month the Crowe family welcomed tourism partners, tour operators, members of the local corporate sector, golf specialists and media representatives to their inaugural Corporate & Golf Event in a new initiative to attract golf and corporate business to this renowned Tipperary family owned resort.
More than 70 guests participated in this event, enjoying a challenging round of golf on what is now ranked one of the top 50 golf courses in Ireland. Course designer Philip Walton played with each team on the 6th hole sharing his expertise. He played the hole seventeen times and scored 8 birdies, 8 pars and 1 bogie over the course of the day. The teams couldn’t say enough about the terrific condition of this mature course despite one of the heaviest downpours the night before, a true test for any golf course.
