Boards Golf Society - Carlow GC Sat 24th Aug 1.30PM

PLEASE NOTE NEW DATE / TIME

Our second Last Event of the year and a course that's been on my bucket list for quite a while.

Next up is Carlow Golf club on Sat 24th Of Aug 1:30pm

A course that has the richly deserved reputation of being one of the finest parkland courses in Ireland. It is our unique, natural landscape that remains dry all year round that makes Carlow an ideal club for visiting golfers and its an excellent club to join as a member.

Carlow Golf Club is consistently ranked in the top 30 of Golf Digest Magazine’s “Top 100 Golf Courses in Ireland” and have achieved 29th place in the 2015 rankings. Ryder Cup star Christy O’Connor Junior once described Carlow’s 16th as the finest 16th hole in the country and, describing our course as one “not to be missed”, the eminent Irish Independent golf columnist Liam Kelly also said that Carlow is “Truly a gem” and that “Class is permanent”. So it’s not surprising that our mission for 2016 is to spread the word about this great course so that many more visitors and new members can enjoy the Carlow golfing experience.

The green fee for this one is €40 teamer invites shortly.

Regards

Benny79

Lads due to the club double booking us! and a lot of work been done in the back round by myself and the committee to find a different course it was just to hard to get as good as course at short notice. So we decided the best thing to do was go a week later. Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause to some.

But on the plus side they have dropped the green fee for the hassle caused to €40 it was €50 and the society was subsidizing some of it which means I can put that money towards Dooks Green fees to bring that down a bit

So we are now playing Carlow 24th @ 1.30pm Hopefully we might get out a bit earlier if lads are early hint..hint...

Regards

Played the course with Boards last time we were there, and its a cracking little classic parkland.

Can't remember the hole, but there is one green that has an insane slope on it, you do not want to be above the hole, or you could be running back down the front & off the green.

I think it had a nice mix of holes, including one shortish, driveable par 4 around the turn (with a lot of water to deal with, so its a major risk reward hole)

Looking forward to it, having missed the Castleknock round, I need 2 big rounds to try jump up the leaderboard

There was big elevation getting to that green I think. For some reason the 4th hole sticks in my head space,
