Bowden Party, UK, April 2017
We had a great time thanks. The weather was kind to us which was a big factor! A lot of the courses we played had slow greens due to top dressing/seeding/etc which was taking place due to the time of year. Greenery was just budding and would be complete in 4 weeks time or so, which affected the presentation of the parkland courses but nothing can be done about that given the time of our visit. Waterville complex was one massive building site, due to the pro shop extension and car park works but many persons apologised to us on the day for all that was going on! Favourite was Dooks, but all of the rest were close seconds. Waterville was great but I found the bunkering odd as they were often situated on the edge of very wide fairways and therefore easily avoided. The Killarney courses were both fabulous. I guess we were there early in the season so it was quiet which was good but had we waited 4 weeks or so the quality would have been a notch up on all of the courses. Everyone was friendly and looked after us and were happy to see our kids on the course. Killarney was a perfect base for our trip. The scenery in the area was spectacular and took us all by surprise.
We will definitely be back, maybe a bit later in the year though!
Thanks for all your help.
All the best,
