I recently won a game of golf for two in a raffle. The prize was for Dun Laoghaire Golf club. This Wednesday I availed of the prize.
The course is divided into three nines: upper, middle and lower. We played the upper and lower.
Green fees would have been €50 each.
I had a very pleasant couple of hours this morning at Dargle View Golf course in Bray. We arrived at 8am just as the course opened.
Dargle View is a pay as you golf course. Green fees are €10 for 9 holes and €12 for 18 holes.
I had a very pleasant morning in Wicklow Golf Club. A friend of mine is a member so I availed of the reduced green fees. It was very uncrowded so we had a relaxing four hours.
Accuracy is rewarded on this course. In my case the opposite applied. Between water, gorse and scrub there are lots of opportunities to lose golf balls. At the end of the round my golf bag was quite a bit lighter!
There’s a lovely variety of holes with wonderful views over the sea and the Wicklow Mountains. The course is quite hilly (especially the back 9). By lunchtime I had certainly worked up an appetite.
We had a very pleasant lunch in the clubhouse over looking the Irish Sea.
I’m looking forward to playing here again.

Congratulations to DLR Chamber on a wonderful day. Druid’s Glen was glorious with perfect weather. The food break by Hick’s in between the 9th and 10th was really welcome. They even supplied me with a vegetarian option. I was really happy with the driver I had bought the previous day in McGuirks Golf.
The highlight of my round was a 3 on the par 3 17th – 168 yds over water onto an island green. Thanks to Martin Toner for his coaching on the run up to the event.

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.
