NW Ireland

The August issue of Golf Digest has a nice article covering some courses in NW Ireland, and also Royal County Down.

County Sligo
Royal County Down ( green fee $245-$294 …YIKES!!! that’s “dear”)

Have any of you folks played these courses? They sound great.

How much, roughly, would it now cost to build a 2 storey house in Ireland to a fairly high specification? Approx 300 square meters…2 car garage…4 rooms upstairs. Around 30 windows.

Cameron, things are so bad in that part of the world that developers were doing “buy one, get one free” on houses and no I am not kidding!

Eagle I have played:

Narin & Portnoo
Royal County Down

I am planning on playing Carne, Enniscrone and Rosses Point (Co Sligo) in March next year.

RCD is expensive in summer but right now I think it is less than $100. It’s an experience you will never forget tho. This is a clip I took of my friend in one of the bunkers which are purposely left that way.


Nice video Styles. That’s a hairy bunker!!

You are lucky to have that opportunity. Please send more video or photos as you can.
