Tuesday 9th – Friday 12th April 2019.
We have teamed up with Experience Ireland Golf & Travel to bring you this superb package at some of Ireland’s best golfing venues . . .

ITINERARY . . .
DAY 1: Tuesday 9th April

Cashen Course & Old Course Ballybunion

A 2-course start at the Cashen Course & Old Course at Ballybunion Golf Club with half the field playing on the Cashen and the other half taking on the Old Course for the 1st Round. 

The Cashen Course, opened in 1982 and designed by renowned golf architect Robert Trent Jones Senior, requires acute precision especially off the tee as fairways frequently disappear around corners.

DAY 2: Wednesday 10th April

Cashen Course & Old Course Ballybunion

The 2nd Day will again involve a 2-course start taking in the World famous Old Course and Cashen Course at Ballybunion Golf Club.

The famous English golf writer, Peter Dobereiner said of BallyB’s Old Course: “If sheer pleasure is the yardstick, then Ballybunion’s Old Course gets my vote as the No. 1 in the world”.

DAY 3: Thursday 11th April

Tralee Golf Links

The 3rd Round of The 2019 Social Media Open will take place at the tremendous Tralee Golf Links.

Course designer, Arnold Palmer, claims credit for the front 9 but has always maintained that “God designed the back 9”, unfortunately for all golf fans Mr Palmer has now passed on but we can luckily still enjoy his amazing work in County Kerry. 

DAY 4: Friday 12th April

Dooks Golf Links

The Final Round of The 2019 Social Media Open takes us to Dooks Golf Links in Glenbeigh. This beautifully located links course was a favourite of many a team last April and it promises to present a great golfing test once more along with the now famous Dooks welcome!  

Also known for its narrow links fairways and well contoured greens, you will get a real taste of traditional links golf at its very best.
