New Golf Challenge: Name That Other Course

P1100323-001

Adam Heyes is right. The golf course shown in the two photos in my previous post is Ardglass Golf Club, in County Down, Northern Ireland. In the photo above, Ian Duff, a longtime member, is looking for my ball to the left of the green on the second hole, a par 3 that plays over a chasm. The photo below shows a less perilous part of the same course.

P1100342The course I played yesterday may not be easy for even Adam to identify. Here’s the second green:

And here’s something I saw on my way home:

P1100505

Today, I’m going back to the course I played the first day I was here. You can get to it by following signs in the lobby of my hotel:

  1. Have no idea what course that is, but from the last photo of the sign in the hotel, I was fortunate enough to play Royal County Down in September 2009. Most fun I ever had while gouging, scraping and hacking my way to a sterling 98. Great caddie, fun walk, what a day, what a golf course! I’d play RCD every day if I could.

    Love your blog. And your SMG seems to be a genuinely fun group of gentlemen.

  2. I thought Tralee too, but the castle there is behind the 3rd green, and it back to the water. Also, he wouldn’t have taken the Tarbert ferry between RCD and Tralee. The only ferry I know of around RCD is the Larne ferry, so maybe the mystery course is in Scotland. To me, though, I think the biggest mystery is how he got the green light for a golf trip days (hours?) after the birth of his first granddaughter. Congratulations, David, on both accomplishments!
