Hidden Gems... or what?

    I'm doing a series of blogs on Ireland's hidden gems (plenty of free fourballs to giveaway BTW)... but I am looking for an alternative term to 'hidden gem'.

    I'll use it if I have to but was wondering if anyone here had a snappy term that gets across the same message. And don't say precious jewel.

    Thanks

  • Debs Night - For the first time you realise that the "girl next door" is a stunner... the dress, the make up, the hair do, the other things that were kept covered up.... It's too late though, the world knows now and their even blogging about it, it'll be hard to get a tee time... *Wonder what Mary is up to these days* ;)

    I like 'undiscovered country', but that might be the Trekkie in me. I just don't think I can make it work.

    Mulligans is brilliant, as is Underclubbed. The Diamond ideas are along the same lines as 'gems'. They work, but a touch of the cliche about them.

    Fairways Less Travelled is actually spot-on.

    Guess it comes down to how it would read:

    Ireland's Fairways Less Travelled
    Mulligan Courses of Ireland
    Underclubbed in Ireland...

    ... or just Ireland's Hidden Gems

    or maybe: "Fairways Less Travelled - Ireland's Hidden Gems"

    Thanks everyone - greatly appreciated.
